New Mercy Resource: 'A Shining Lamp: The Oral Instructions of Catherine McAuley'

Editor: Mary C. Sullivan rsm, author of the biography 'The Path of Mercy: The Life of Catherine McAuley' and editor of 'The Correspondence of Catherine McAuley' and 'The Practical Sayings of Catherine McAuley', has now edited 'A Shining Lamp: The Oral Instructions of Catherine McAuley'.

Writing of this, Sr Mary's latest publication, Sr Pat McDermott, President of the Institute of Sisters of Mercy of the Americas said 'A Shining Lamp reveals the heart and spirituality of Catherine McAuley, the 'why' of doing the works of mercy, spiritual and corpo­ral'. Sr Pat continued, 'For any reader- Sisters of Mercy, Mercy co-workers, followers of Jesus- the oral instructions provide glimpses into the motivation and inspiration of this extraordinary founder. At the core of Catherine's journey, 'resemblance to Jesus, charity, patient suffering, and humil­ity' illuminate the path of mercy for her followers today. The Sisters of Mercy are indebted to the companions of Catherine who treasured and safeguarded her sayings, letters, poetry, and instructions as a gift to future generations. Sister Mary C. Sullivan, through her exemplary scholarship, now offers our Church these instructions as a contempo­rary interpretation for following Jesus Christ.'
