With all the challenges and stressors we are experiencing today, let’s not forget to lean on God’s mercy for others and ourselves. Mercy is at the heart of the Good News. Therefore, sharing out (and sharing in) God’s mercy is the goal of all evangelization and catechesis; it forms the contours of the disciple’s journey. Mercy can be described as the act of making room for God and others in our hearts, in our lives. When we understand this broad and biblical vision of mercy, we can being to put mercy into action and experience its fruits: namely, mercy leads to new opportunity, new blessings, and new life. Who doesn’t need a little renewal these days?!
