This is a time for peace within the Earth community. Christmas blessings from Mary Tinney


As Love is born the Universe gathers as one
in awe and contemplation
and, in doing so, receives love universal.

The immensity of the Cosmos,
the light of the star,
humanity from across Earth’s nations,
draw us beyond boundaries
into communion with all that exists.

May you be led this Christmas
by the ancient, blazing light of the Star who is Christ.
May you walk your journey
from the depths of your heart,
awakening to yourself and the world
the gifts of Love, Compassion, Creativity, Wonder
and Promises to be revealed.

Mary-Louise, Maria, Trish, Marg and Margaret
Leadership Team Sisters of Mercy Parramatta


To our world wide Mercy Community
we send our gratitude,
our prayers,
our love
and pray for
peace in all hearts,
in all lands.
We strive to live
the Mercy Core Values
and keep Mercy alive.

With love,
Associates Gale and Dave Zensky
