Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

 

Mercy renews and redeems

“Mercy renews and redeems because it is the meeting of two hearts: the heart of God who comes to meet the human heart. The latter is warmed and healed by the former. Our hearts of stone become hearts of flesh (cf. Ezek 36:26) capable of love despite our sinfulness. I come to realize that I am truly a ‘new creation’ (Gal 6:15): I am loved, therefore I exist; I am forgiven, therefore I am reborn; I have been shown mercy, therefore I have become a vessel of mercy.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: Jesus Christ on the cross is the ultimate expression of redeeming mercy flowing from the heart of God coming to meet the human heart. Recall a time when you experienced great physical or emotional pain. Did this painful experience have a lasting effect on your life? How, if at all, did God’s love help you to cope with the situation? What helped you heal? If you are still dealing with this pain, how might it become a means for showing mercy to others?
