Beautiful Mercy is broken down into two parts: One for the Corporal Works of Mercy and the other on the Spiritual Works of Mercy. Each part has seven chapters: one for each work and written by different authors.
Even in the prelude are we already reminded that the Church achieves its mission through the action of ordinary Catholics like you and me. There is only one type of person God has used powerfully throughout history: He does incredible things with the people who make themselves available to him. Pray as you read this book. Invite the mercy of God to transform your life, because in the end itís all about Godís mercy.
God's mercy is scandalous. It offends our innate sense of human justice. Quite simply, God's mercy is not fair. And yet it is with this unfair and scandalous mercy that we ourselves have been, or can be, forgiven.
This book will touch the core of who you are. There is no better time than right now to rediscover the incredible power of God's mercy.
Experiencing God's Unconditional Love So We Can Share it with Others
Giving and receiving mercy is central to living the life God calls us to. We all need mercy at different times in our lives and we all have an obligation to give mercy to others at different times in our lives. If you think about it, God's mercy is overwhelmingly generous. He calls us to respond with the same spirit of generosity.
Beautiful Mercy provides an encounter with the heart of God. By focusing on the seven spiritual and seven corporal works of mercy, it inspires readers to realize that extraordinary acts of love are possible for us all - no matter where we are in life.
Beautiful Mercy includes an Introduction by Pope Francis and writings by Matthew Kelly, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, Father Larry Richards, Father Michael Gaitley, Father Donald Calloway, Curtis Martin, Dr Scott Hahn, and many more contributors.
