The courage to walk where Mercy points

Nga mihi atawhai – greetings to all in Mercy! ‘Nothing like Christian courage – the church would not have one martyr to rejoice in without it!’ The words are Catherine McAuley’s, in a letter she writes to a young novice in Galway, encouraging her to be faithful to her call and not to doubt that God will build on her generosity and make it fruitful.
