Circle of Mercy

"There are things the poor
prize more highly than gold,
though they cost the donor nothing.
Among these are the kind word,
the gentle, compassionate look,
and the patient hearing of their sorrows."Catherine McAuley
Foundress of The Sisters of Mercy
for a musical montage
of the Works of Mercy
around the world!

Dear Sister Sarah!
Thanks for sharing this and indeed you have shared Catherine's comfortable cup of tea in this post!
The Circle of Mercy was uplifting and joy-filled!
Do you post the lyrics somewhere or is there a copy of the song someplace? Wonderful!

Thank you for your comment! The song "Circle of Mercy" was written by Sr. Jeanette Goglia, RSM. You can read the lyrics here:
