Dedicate Your Local Door of Mercy on (or around) 13 December

'The logo for our Mercy International Reflection Process, unfolding during this Year, is centered on the red doors of Baggot Street. In a profoundly mystical way, these red doors connect all our doors of Mercy – in our convents and houses, in our places of ministry, in holy places around us, in Earth which nourishes us, in the cosmos which holds us in communion, and in the hearts of all Sisters of Mercy, Associates and Partners-in-Mercy.' Elizabeth Davis rsm (Newfoundland).

What door of Mercy will you open on (or around) 13 December when the Holy Door in Rome and the Doors of Baggot Street are opened?

Classroom doors and Community Room doors, doors of hospital wards and aged care facilities, office doors and front doors to our convents, homes and gathering places... there are so many possibilities.

We suggest you choose a door that is used often so that in the rhythm of your going out and coming in over the next twelve months you have a mindfulness of going out in Mercy and of welcoming in in mercy.

We then invite and encourage you to share your Images and Stories of your local door opening with the Mercy world through Mercy eNews.
