SILVER SPRING, MD–(HISPANIC PR WIRE – U.S. NEWSWIRE)–February 4, 2003–
How do you bring Mercy to the world?
According to the Sisters of Mercy, we can all live out the universal qualities of Mercy – compassionate service, joyful community living, and prayer coupled with action – through such activities as building, dancing, and growing. And they’re promoting that message in a year-long campaign, “Let’s Bring Mercy to the World.” The models used in the photographs, which help to dispel stereotypes of vowed religious life, are Sisters of Mercy who have engaged in the activities shown, such as building a house, dancing by the sea, and working the soil.
The campaign is being rolled out in three phases throughout the year. The first phase begins on January 31, 2003 with the message “Let’s Build and Bring Mercy to the World.”
“As we continue to pray for world peace as as we think about some of the ‘ways of the world,’ isn’t it wonderful to spread the message of mercy?,” says Sister Marie Chin, president of the Institute of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas. “Together, we can build and bring mercy to the world!”
