Mercy Global Presence Has Begun!

*What is Mercy Global Presence?*

Mercy Global Presence is an organic entity and a countercultural sign in a globalised world which has made more extreme the displacement of persons and degradation of Earth. Mercy Global Presence links congregations/institutes, individual Sisters of Mercy and Associates, partners in Mercy, and Mercy International Association in creative and energising ways.

Mercy Global Presence Has Begun!

Segment 1 Focus: Global

In these next four months (through four themes in September - December 2019), we will listen to many distinct voices singing the ground-shifting song of Cosmos (September), the lifegiving chant of integral ecology (October), the resounding melodies of humankind experiencing deep social change (November), and the joy-filled canticles of praise for the incarnation of our God in Cosmos and in the person of Jesus the Christ (December).

From 'panoramic vistas to the tiniest living form' (Laudato Si’, 85), 'Global' at the centre of 'Mercy Global Presence' will come alive with new wonder, new mystery and new meaning.

Segment 1: Global

September 2019 - December 2019

The initial exploration of Mercy Global Presence centres on “Global,” the context in which all mercying happens. Through the wisdom of many voices, new meanings of “global” will unfold over four months: cosmology as the communion of all God’s creation, integral ecology as relationships among all Earth ecosystems, people and today’s deep social change, and the living God incarnate in Cosmos and in the person of Jesus the Christ.
