On the eve of Mercy and Mission Week, an occasion celebrated by Mercy schools across the country, I would like to take this opportunity to reflect on the meaning and value of Mercy. When the Sisters of Mercy arrived in Iowa with a desire to follow in the footsteps of Catherine McAuley and to serve "wherever human needs exist," they focused their energies on seeing to the needs of the sick and the poor and providing education to improve lives. In so doing, they created three pillars of this city: Mercy Hospital, the Catherine McAuley Center and what eventually became Mount Mercy University, now celebrating 85 years of educational service to this community. What they left behind, however, created a value that cannot be measured by institutions alone.
