The Pope has just opened the year of Mercy. An entire year to contemplate, cooperate with and enter into God's boundless mercy. A year might seem like a long time to contemplate God's mercy but in all actuality one could spend a thousand lifetimes contemplating the great mercy of God. I could write 10,000 pages on God's mercy for me alone. I am the product of the mercy of God. This is why I am so excited for the year of Mercy. Over the next month I will write several posts to help you get the most out of the year of Mercy. In the meantime find the closest Mercy Door and jump into the ocean that is God's incredible mercy.
Let us fall into the hands of the Lord, but not into the hands of mortals; for equal to his majesty is his mercy, and equal to his name are his works.
