Friday Night Sacred Scripture Study

Father Matthew Kauth


Bible Study of Mercy

Mercy.  It is the one thing we all need and the one thing we are often incapable of giving.  What actually is mercy?  How is it inseparably wedded to justice?  Why is it so hard to forgive “from the heart?”  Sacred Scripture provides us with God’s response to these questions.
