In a world yearning for the touch of mercy, the example of Catherine McAuley, our foundress, is encouraging and empowering. She had a tremendous desire to make some lasting effort for those on the margins of life – for those who suffered, who were poor or vulnerable. This engendered a response that was practical and immediate, warm and open, enabling and respectful.
We are invited to walk the path of mercy in new times with new needs – to take up the challenge and live the mercy dream for today.
