Year of Mercy: Transition

With the completion of our look at Pope Francis’ document ‘The Face of Mercy,’ it is time to take a breath and reflect on the journey through The Year of Mercy thus far.

I hope you have read the Pope’s original document as you have followed my meditations based on it. I encourage you to use this week to go back through the Pope’s writing and embrace those parts of it which are most important, inspiring, and instructive for you and your faith journey as a disciple.

For my part, I will now turn to meditations on many of the Psalms and parables in Scripture that are the basis of the Pope’s document.  Between now and the beginning of Advent, these future “Year of Mercy” meditations will follow the flow of inspiration which the Bible itself provides.

See you back here next week as we continue our exploration of God’s mercy and what it means for us to be instruments of it.
