The Year of Mercy – A One Hundred Word Retreat 4

100 Word Retreat Slide #2.001

Mary Rose’s parish book club decided to read the pope’s bull about mercy. (Bull???). “Jesus Christ is the face of the Father’s mercy… Jesus of Nazareth, by his words, his actions, and his entire person reveals the mercy of God.” (Misericordiae Vultus, no.1)

Everyone thought that was a nice thought, that Jesus is the face of God’s mercy.

Mary Rose, being an introvert, though her friends didn’t think so, thought, “If my actions revealed the mercy of God to others all the time – I certainly tried!

Why don’t they treat me the same way? Why doesn’t God… Uh oh!!!”

Question for reflection: Is Jesus Christ the face of God’s mercy for you?
