Mercy

“Mercy always appeals to the goodness of each person, even though it be dormant and numbed. Far from bringing destruction, as we so often desire or want to bring about ourselves, mercy seeks to transform each situation from within. Herein lies the mystery of divine mercy. It seeks and invites us to conversion, it invites us to repentance; it invites us to see the damage being done at every level. Mercy always pierces evil in order to transform it.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: Who or what has invited you to see your own goodness in the recent past? Do you tend to look for the goodness or the faults of people you interact with on a regular basis? Take a few minutes to rest in the mystery of divine mercy and allow God’s mercy to well up within you so that it can then flow through you in addressing damage in your corner of the world.
