Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, preacher to the papal household, delves into the mystery of mercy, both human and divine. Jesus is "the mercy of God who became flesh," and it is his gaze of mercy that transforms us. Among the Gospel passages he explores are Jesus' encounters with Zacchaeus and the woman caught in adultery as well as the passion of Jesus, "the height of God's mercy," and his resurrection, "the victory of God's mercy." He also reminds us that just as we are recipients of God's mercy, we are called to be merciful to others. Insightful and inspiring!
