Mercy open our hearts to one another, to every stranger and every friend. Mercy open our hearts to one another, to finding, appreciating and honoring our differences, rejoicing in what we can, seeking to understand what baffles us.

Mercy open our hearts to one another that generosity may flow into this world as a rushing stream, making way for healing, hope, and true justice, making way with love, with risking for goodness' sake, and with courage, day after day.
