    Lightbulb love and mercy and pity

    Does "love and mercy and pity" refer to "man"?

    Tell them that it will lead them to know Intelligences, whose whole life is one of love and mercy and pity and helpful aid to man, combined with adoration of the Supreme.


    "The History of Spiritualism," by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

    Five attributes are listed. They can only be assigned to one thing, which is mentioned earlier in the sentence.

    Hint: No.

    Have you figured out what they do refer to?
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
