y her example Mother Teresa, who was canonized on 4 September in Rome, inspired many to give their ‘hearts to love and their hands to serve’ the poor, the sick and the dying.
In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, our prayer is that Catholics around the world continue to acknowledge the need for mercy – to both receive it, and to extend mercy to others in our families, communities and even in far-flung places we’ve never been.
In many ways, Saint Teresa became the face of Jesus in the world … in her tireless efforts to feed the hungry, encourage the downtrodden, nurse the sick, protect orphans and abandoned babies, and comfort the dying. Her dedication is mirrored in the work of priests and sisters serving 30 Missions in our Archdiocese.
Here, the Mission station is a beacon of hope … helping to relieve suffering, and bring love and mercy to rural communities where people live in poverty, often without basic facilities like safe tap water, electricity and primary health care.
Thanks to generous support from Mission friends … people like you … clinics, schools, care centres and hospices have been established, and feeding schemes, poverty relief and skills development projects have been started. But much work still needs to be done. As long as people are hungry, sick and suffering, we must continue. And by “we”, we mean not only Mission priests and sisters … but merciful people like you as well.
Your donation – made online right now – will provide food for the hungry, medicines too keep children safe from disease, education, care for the sick and dying. It will keep God’s mercy alive on the Zulu Misisons.
So please will you renew your support now? Let suffering people in far-flung rural African villages feel the blessing of your merciful heart.
