All around us, we get the message that success and achievement comes from self-aggrandizement and the willingness to avenge the wrongs done to you. Those who show mercy are portrayed as weak and lacking in self-respect. However, in this Year of Mercy, Pope Francis is reminding our world that true power comes from the strength of merciful love. We see this illustrated concretely in by living the works of mercy. In this presentation, we'll explore the true meaning of mercy found in the Gospel and how we can concretely live it in our present times with power, self-dignity, and solidarity.
