What is Mercy?

From my spiritual reading of Mother Teresa today:

"Mercy is more than a feeling of pity or compassion; mercy has to be expressed. It needs constant emphasis that mercy is love expressed under the aspect of need. Mercy is love going out to meet the need of the person loved. Mercy is prayer to the Father of all mercies on behalf of all who suffer."

~from Blessed are You: Mother Teresa and the Beatitudes
