All the Lord Have Mercys
A reference to the Catholic rite of confession, wherein penitents make up for their sins through prayer. You confess anonymously to a priest, who in any case, is sworn to confidentiality. The priest gives you a regimen of prayers to complete, usually involving Hail Marys and similar prayers.
The Jesus prayer is one of the most fundamental prayers in the Christian faith; to be able to say it well, repeatedly, so that it almost becomes a part of one’s breathing, is a goal of Christian ascetics: to be constantly praying, 100% of the time. The prayer is simple but sincere:
Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
