Abstract This article discusses the diary of the Rev. A. D. Luckhoff, written during the South African War in the infamous Bethulie concentration camp from the perspective of his Spirituality of mercy. It analyses the diary in terms of mercy as giving love, as charitableness and as respect for human dignity. It then investigates mercy in the diary as compassion and vulnerability, before it concludes by discussing how Lukchoff’s faith in providence, his awareness of a divine call, his inner space of homeliness and love empower mercy.
