Reflective Prayer: Mercying
Jean Adam rsm, Carolyn McWatters rsm (Americas): 'Touched by God's Mercy, we reach out in Mercy'


 O God, rich in mercy, draw us closer to your own heart and make our hearts one with you.  As we are immersed in the world’s suffering, may we rely on your abundant flow of mercy to us which flows through us upon those who suffer.

Jean Adam is from the United States, growing up initially in the heartland of Nebraska.

Shortly after the conclusion of Vatican II I joined the Sisters of Mercy.

My education allowed me to minister in secondary education, teaching French and Theology. In Parish Pastoral Ministry with concentrations in Liturgy and Spirituality and in New Membership ministry  for the Community.

I have a great love of music and resonate with “How Can I Keep From Singing”

Carolyn McWatters rsm hails from North Carolina where she entered the Sisters of Mercy. She is presently doing parish ministry in St Louis, Missouri. Her education and ministerial assignments have been in the areas of intermediate and secondary education and parish liturgy and music.  The universe story and her relationship with Piper, her kitty, have worked together to transform her understanding of God and creation and the interconnection and holiness of everything.
