Mercy International Association Global Action
Sisters of Mercy and partners-in- Mercy were invited in the Jubilee Year of Mercy (2016) to participate in a worldwide reflection process to discern together globally a shared response to the 'cry of Earth and the cry of the Poor'. New visions and commitments to action under two, often intersecting, theme areas: (i) displacement of Persons, and (ii) degradation of Earth, emerged from the process. Mercy international Association is committed to addressing these identified forms of injustice.
Addressing Degradation of Earth
Climate change, rising temperatures, erratic and unpredictable rainfall and the frequency of extreme weather events are among the indicators that global actions are required if we are to achieve a better future for the planet.
Addressing Displacement of Persons
Solidarity, generosity, recognition of our common humanity and acceptance of responsibility - these are all necessary if we are to find solutions to the global crisis of displacement.
