Jubilee Year of Mercy and the Cause for Beatification of Venerable Catherine McAuley

In response to many requests from Sisters, Collaborators, Associates and Co-workers, we intend to organise a 'Write a letter to Pope Francis' campaign.

This initiative proposes that as many people as possible who are in contact with Sisters of Mercy and/or who have been influenced in any way by the charism of Mercy as lived and shared by Catherine McAuley are invited to write a letter to Pope Francis for the inauguration of the Jubilee year of Mercy. This letter could include gratitude for the initiative of the year of Mercy and asking that Venerable Catherine McAuley might be beatified during the Holy year.

In the coming weeks the vice postulators (Sheila Carney rsm and Caroline Ryan rsm)  together with the postulator (Brenda Dolphin rsm) will be in contact with the people of their areas about writing such a letter and will offer suggestions as to the organisation of this “tsunami” of letters to Pope Francis from Mercy worldwide.

Please watch this space!
