Mercy isn't an abstract word. If we're serious about following Jesus, mercy must be a way of life. St Mary MacKillop understood mercy and lived it. Pope Francis, in 2016, is continually showing and living mercy. Mary and Francis challenge US to be people of mercy ... every day of our lives!
You are invited to ponder their words, and the image below, using the Visio Divina method of praying.
Latin for 'divine seeing', Visio Divina is a prayerful consideration of and interaction with a photograph, icon, piece of art, or other visual representation. It allows the viewer to experience God in a unique and powerful way.
Mary MacKillop, March 3, 1900
Pope Francis, June 30. 2016
Spend a few minutes with this image, and these words of Mary and Francis. Then ponder:
In this Year of Mercy:
How might I make a difference … in even one person’s life?
