Mercy is the way grace in us 

reaches out to others.

Grace calls us to step out of ourselves. 

Mercy shows us where to go. 

Grace is our primary encounter 

with God.


Mercy extends that encounter 

to others. 

Grace is the presence of God within.


Mercy is the action of God within.

Let us break the seal which seals up


holy things and give wings to Truth


in order that she soars and wins 

every soul that comes into the world! 

May God’s truth be multiplied


and reach souls throughout 

all of God’s creation.
