Read the daily quote from Pope Francis

 

Our every word

“The Church, in union with Christ, the living incarnation of the Father of Mercies, is called to practice mercy as the distinctive trait of all that she is and does. What we say and how we say it, our every word and gesture, ought to express God’s compassion, tenderness, and forgiveness for all.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: Mercy has been a hallmark of life with the one true God for thousands of years.  In the Gospel according to Matthew (9:13), we hear Jesus repeat God's call as voiced through an Old Testament prophet: "I desire mercy, not sacrifice" (cf. Hos 6:6).  How do you express mercy through your words and gestures?  What helps you show tenderness to others?  When do you find it hard to offer compassion or forginess?
