“It takes a great deal of courage to be merciful in a time of high tension,” writes Joan Chittister in the November Monastic Way that reflects on the Mother of Mercy. Sister Joan centers her thoughts on mercy in the midst of the worldwide COVID-19 crisis and the political turmoil enveloping the county. She concludes “we have looked at the two sides of ourselves as a nation face to face---have we ever seen a more meaningful display of mercy, a more haunting example of humanity, and, at the same time, a more discouraging, breath-taking example of both self-centeredness and dispassionate government than right here and now?"
