The latest issue (Vol. 23, No. 2) of The MAST Journal Now Available

The latest issue (Vol. 23, No. 2) of The MAST Journal was recently published.  Editor Eloise Rosenblatt rsm reports that the issue 'Go Out To All the World: Mercy Foundresses' was inspired by guest editor, Julia Upton, RSM who wanted to feature the “next generation” of Catherine McAuley’s sisters—those who carried the charism of Mercy out from Baggot Street in Dublin to the world.

Contributors are:

Mary Sullivan rsm frames the issue by offering an analysis and reflection on 'Catherine McAuley’s Methods of Leadership Development'.

Janice Edwards rsm in her 'Clare Moore: Trusting in God’s Providence in the Crimean War', looks to the Bermondsey Annals.

Berenice Kerr rsm writes a spritely, energizing portrait of her local foundress in 'Ursula Frayne: Works of Mercy in Australia'.

Julia Upton, RSM introduces us to another foundress bound for Australia in “Vincent Whitty: Mission to Queensland.”

Marciene Kirk rsm and her co-writer De Pazzi Hudner rsm, pay tribute to their foundress in 'Mary Cecilia Maher: Auckland, New Zealand'.

Mary Kay Dobrovolny, RSM tells readers more about the sister whose art has gone out to all the world in 'Mother Clare Augustine Moore: The Artist and Foundress'.

Grace Leggio Agate rsm educates readers about the origins of the Kenya foundation in 1956 in “Sister Dolorosa Waldron: From Dublin to Kenya'.

Madeline Duckett rsm concludes the issue by carrying the Mercy legacy forward today in 'Daughters of the Second Wave'.

As usual the issue provides discussion questions for those who want to use the essays for communal reflection with sisters, associates, companions or partners in ministry.

Past issues (vol 1-21) are now freely available online on the MAST website.

The MAST Journal is published three times a year by the Mercy Association in Scripture and Theology.  To subscribe please contact Julia Upton rsm
