We so often pray, “Kyrie eleison” or “Lord, have mercy.” But what does the Bible really say about the mercy of God? How does Jesus show God’s mercy, through his life, his teachings and his actions? And how do the Sacred Scriptures challenge us to put mercy into practice concretely today? This workshop will explore the biblical themes of mercy, compassion, pity, forgiveness and kindness. It will help us better know what we are asking for when we pray for God’s mercy, and how God also expects us to act mercifully toward others.
