The word “mercy” is defined as kindness or compassion that is shown to others. A merciful relationship provides protection, provision, and presence. At Brothers of Mercy, it is our hope to reveal the healing love of Jesus to those in need by attending to both physical and spiritual needs. Spiritual care can help a person (re)discover hope, resilience and inner strength in times of illness, injury, transition, and loss. Spiritual care attends to a person’s spiritual or religious needs as they seek to heal physically and emotionally and thus regain a sense of well being. By providing spiritual support, mercy and compassion are manifested not simply as a consoling message but in practical help.
