'Walking Gently on Earth': this Wonderful Publication is a Gift to Mercy Worldwide

Editor: On Sunday, 27 November, a large crowd of Sisters and friends of Mercy gathered at the Knock Hotel, Co. Mayo, Ireland for the launch of Walking Gently on Earth.

We are privileged and proud to be launching this wonderful publication online today. The Sisters write:

'The Sisters of the Western Province in Ireland have been honoured with an Eco-Congregation award. The process involved making a submission, which developed into a book, Walking Gently on Earth. Following the gratuitous nature of our merciful God, and the universe that is constantly giving of itself, we wish to share some of our story— as it is expressed in this book— with you, the Global Mercy community.

May you enjoy it, as the Jubilee Year of Mercy comes to a close.'
