In this collection of essays, Reverend L. Scott Donahue, president of Mercy Home for Boys & Girls, invites readers to bear witness to love’s remarkable power to inspire growth, hope, and change in even the direst circumstances. In these pages, Fr. Scott recounts the stories of ten children whose traumatic pasts have brought them to Mercy Home to seek the healing and supportive services this therapeutic residential home provides.
Though their paths to Mercy Home’s door may differ, for these children, a common thread binds each of their stories together: remarkable strength, unwavering spirit, and a heart tender and open enough to receive help when it’s needed most.
In Years of Mercy, Fr. Scott reflects on the miracles that happen within Mercy Home’s walls, thanks to God’s good grace and the many friends across the country who lend their prayers and support to offer children hope, healing, and the promise of a brighter tomorrow.
