Your Ever Affectionate M.C. McAuley

Excerpts from the letters of a very special woman for your reflection and encouragement.

Track 1 affords a glimpse of the life and times of Catherine McAuley in the late 18th and early 19th centuries in Dublin, Ireland.

Tracks 2-11 each consist of a reading of one or more of Catherine's letters, specially chosen for what they reveal about the woman herself. Each letter is preceded by a short contextual introduction which allows us to situate the letter and the people to whom she writes. Following the reading of the letter, a short reflection is offered. This reflection highlights modern day works of Mercy begun by Catherine and continuing worldwide at the present time.
