It is through my relationships with the family and friends of Holy Cross Province, that my heart has received the gift of His mercy. When I spend time with a Passionist, talk to a benefactor or collaborate with a colleague my vision of Christ’s teachings become clearer. That clarity has helped me see others in a light of greater forgiveness, tolerance and compassion.
Year of Mercy Reflections
God revealed his mercy to me in a friend who has been in my life for a long time, but recently she has been there on a deeper level and gave me exactly what I needed – someone to listen.
I seem to be learning this year that: When I feel I have a weakness, God, in his mercy uses it to show me strength. Knee surgery made me wonder if I could do anything active; but through amazing “coincidences” I’ve found a new love of backpacking. I had to let go, and God showed me God’s love and abundant blessings.
