The Crimean Journals of the Sisters of Mercy, 1854-6

In December 1854 fifteen nuns from Ireland arrived in the Crimea to nurse the sick and wounded British soldiers who were fighting in the Crimean War. The head of this mission was Mother M. Francis Bridgeman of Kinsale, and among her community were Sister M. Doyle of Gort and Sister M. Joseph Croke of Charleville. All three kept an account of their experiences, recording the conditions under which they travelled to the Crimea, the state of the hospitals they worked in, their relationships with the soldiers, medical and military authorities.

Catherine McAuley and the Tradition of Mercy

The present volume, a collection of some of the most important writings by and about Catherine McAuley, includes letters, memoirs, and annals by many of the first Sisters of Mercy and McAuley's original manuscript of the Rule and Constitutions of the order, critically edited for the first time.

The Friendship of Florence Nightinagle and Mary Clare Moore

These letters illustrate the personal lives and spiritual struggles and aspirations of two highly influential women in Victorian England: one working to achieve military and governmental reforms, the other designing and implementing new church-related services to the poor-both bound together by their devotion to those who were neglected, by nursing and other skills, by mature Christian faith, and by their engaging affection for one another.

The Path of Mercy

During the past 180 years more than 55,000 Sisters of Mercy have served among the poor and needy throughout the world. Why?
