Catherine McAuley’s Comfortable Cup of Tea

Blog Published: November 29, 2006

Not knowing off the top of my head, I headed to web sites of the Sisters of Mercy (whom Catherine founded in 1831). To my great delight, I discovered that one of the symbols associated with Catherine is “a comfortable cup of tea.”
