Mercy Responds to the Killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery & Breonna Taylor

May 29, 2020

"The ultimate measure of a [person] is not where [they] stand in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."
--Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Institute Leadership Team of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, join with the many who grieve the recent killings of:

George Floyd, 46
Minneapolis, Minnesota
Ahmaud Arbery, 25
Brunswick, Georgia
Breonna Taylor, 26
Louisville, Kentucky


We pray for comfort for each of these families as they face the painful loss of their loved ones.  We pray for the African American Community, repeatedly impacted by the trauma these killings produce, that the supportive care is accessible and available. We pray for this Nation's deep racial divide and that true healing will occur. 
We pray unceasingly, and we stand.
We stand in solidarity with the many calling for justice and an end to the extrajudicial killings of African Americans.
