Catherine McAuley’s Feast Day

On Saturday 11 November, we celebrated the feast day of Catherine McAuley, the foundress of the Sisters of Mercy. As Mercy people worldwide, we pray that we continue her work inspired by her life, charism and spirituality.

To have hope,
is to believe that history continues to be open to the dream of God and to human creativity.
To have hope,
is to continue to affirm that it is possible to dream a different world, without hunger, without injustice, without discrimination.
To have hope,
is to believe in the revolutionary potential of faith and to leave the door open, so that the Spirit can enter and make all things new.
To have hope,
is to begin as many times as necessary.
To have hope,
is to live.
Give us the blessing of courage to ask what you want of us, Lord. Amen.
Give us the blessing to know that to live is to change. Amen.
Give us the blessing to trust that you always have faith in us. Amen.
