No. 483 | 19 September 2012

Catherine McAuley, foundress of the Sisters of Mercy, used her inheritance in service of the needs of her time. Today, Sisters of Mercy, through Mercy International Association, use their resources to respond to issues of global poverty demonstrated in the massive displacement of persons worldwide...This vision keeps alive the founding spirit of Catherine among peoples of the world most in need of God's compassion and mercy.
from the MIA Visioning Statement 2007


A Conversation with Mary C Sullivan rsm (MIA)

Last September, Mary C Sullivan rsm was at Baggot Street to give a retreat on the theme "Catherine McAuley and Life in the Gospel".

Anne Walsh (Mercy E-news Editor) arranged with Mary well in advance of that visit to have "a conversation" with her about her writings on Catherine McAuley, her insights into Catherine and the foundation of the Order, and the call to be Mercy today.

The conversation was filmed on 27 September 2011 in the Callahan Room at Baggot Street.

As we each prepare to enter the Season of Mercy (24 September - 12 December), we are invited to view this 50 minute video as part of our preparation, conscious, in the words of Mary Sullivan, that "Catherine's affection for us endures...so also does her sense of what we are in the world".
