A SPIRIT OF MERCY – REFLECTIONS ON THE WORKS OF MERCYMarch 9, 2016
In this Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis calls us to conversion in our own lives so that we can be and bring the face of God’s mercy to the world. You might like to spend time with this resource from the Archdiocese of Melbourne.
In this booklet are a series of articles written by Br Mark O’Connor FMS, Director of the Archbishop’s Office for Evangelisation in the Archdiocese of Melbourne.
They are suitable as a source of both individual and group reflection as we journey through the Season of Lent in this Year of Mercy but likewise are suitable at any time during this Year of Mercy. Each article is a reflection on the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy, which originate from the Tradition of the Church dating back to post-middle ages. They are meant to be visible signs of God’s mercy and compassion at work in the world.
