Enter the mystery of mercy today and live it!
From St John Eudes
God is called the Father of mercies and the God of all consolation to show us that he carries all our difficulties in his Heart and that they deeply move him … And that he has an infinite desire to free us. He is the Father of the Incarnate Word, who is mercy. To be merciful, it is necessary to carry in one´s heart, through compassion, the difficulties of the other; and have a strong will to help him; to move from willing to action.
(Quotations adapted from the book “The Admirable Heart of Mary”)
From Pope Francis
God's mercy is not an abstract idea, but a concrete reality through which he reveals his love as that of a father and a mother who allow themselves be moved to their deepest core by their child. MV 6
As the Father loves, so the children love … Love can never be an abstract word. By nature, it is concrete , it is life: intentions, attitudes, behaviour which come through in the actions of everyday . MV 9
