[Previous instalments in the ‘Scarves on Statues’ series can be found here]
I had something completely different planned for this week’s addition to Scarves on Statues, but after the trauma of the last few days that have seen our coach dismissed following an embarrassing thrashing at the hands of a decidedly mediocre Cagliari team, somehow this seemed more appropriate.
According to Wikipedia, “Sisters of Mercy are an international community of Roman Catholic women religious vowed to serve people who suffer from poverty, sickness and lack of education with a special concern for women and children. Members take vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience, the evangelical counsels commonly vowed in religious life, and, in addition, vows of service.”
The plaque associated with this statue outside Auckland’s Mercy Hospice says: “We commit to a future of equality and justice as we live in faith and walk the edges.”
