A great example of mercy is the parable of the prodigal son.
Now that the Jubilee Year of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis has begun, it is good to meditate on this important virtue so that we can discover new and better ways to live it out in our daily lives. In this meditation we will consider:
How God is merciful to us
What the Scriptures say about mercy
The nature of mercy
Why it is so important that we live mercy ourselves
