Angela Merkel orchestrated the most generous, openhearted gesture of recent history blossoming from Germany, the country that within living memory (and beyond) blew apart the European continent, and then the world, by taking to gruesome extremes all the forces its Chancellor strives to hold in check: nationalism, nativism, self-righteousness, reversion to arms. Angela welcomed refugees with open arms when so many other nations were closing their borders. She showed courage, compassion and mercy, something that many leaders seem to lack.

Sr. Angelato O'DonoghueRGS
I chose Sr Angela as my model of mercy because she is also my Aunty Kath, the only sister of my mum. Throughout my life I have been privileged to witness her commitment to her faith and family. She first entered the Good Shepherd order in her early twenties, but returned home before her final vows to care for her mother who had become ill. She nursed both my grandparents until they died and re-entered the convent at the age of 44. She will turn 100 years old on the 11th August. Although now frail in body, her mind and spirit are an inspiration to all who know her.

I chose Anna because she volunteered to go and live in Bali to help a volunteer organisation that provides clean energy products to people in places like Bali.These people don’t have access to electricity and clean water.She distributes solar lights and things like that.This organisation is spread worldwide.

I chose my grandmother because she was “A light of mercy in my life”…The mother of 9 children and a mentally ill husband.This woman had a tough life. The love, care and mercy that she showed everyone whom she met on her path of life changed people. Nana came to live with our family (of 9) before I was born. She was my second mother. Her unconditional, love and mercy gave me the tools of which guide my life.

I chose Barbara because I have known her for many years but did not fully realise the depth of her love and caring for the elderly of our parish.I am now blessed with a closer relationship and find, without ever having to ask, Barbara is there when I need her and I watch as she spreads her wings throughout the retirement village where I live.
