The Message of Mercy


Mercy has been the defining characteristic of Pope Francis papacy a papacy that has captured the hearts and minds of believers and non-believers alike. It s little wonder then that the Holy Father has announced 2016 as the Extraordinary Year of Mercy. In The Message of Mercy, Amalee Meehan considers the subject of mercy, not only through a careful reading of relevant Scripture passages, but by exploring revealing extracts from literary classics and pertinent, sometimes surprising, examples from popular culture. This engaging and encouraging work calls on readers to question their own understanding of mercy towards both themselves and others and in so doing foster a deeper, more fulfilling relationship with God.
