Rev. David Songy, O.F.M.Cap., S.T.D., Psy.D., explores the dimensions of a theology of mercy and suggests a process of spiritual renewal.
In Misericordiae Vultus Pope Francis points to Jesus Christ as the face of the Father’s mercy and recalls the words of John: Whoever sees Jesus sees the Father (cf. Jn 14:9). Many priests, religious, and pastoral ministers become so worn down by the daily stressors of ministry that the spiritual life seems no longer a source of personal healing and strength.
The Year of Mercy is a time to rediscover the face of mercy, and in the words of the Holy Father, “find the strength to embrace God’s mercy and dedicate ourselves to being merciful with others as the Father has been with us.” Rev. David Songy, O.F.M.Cap., S.T.D., Psy.D., explores the dimensions of a theology of mercy and suggests a process of spiritual renewal, utilizing the Holy Father’s suggestion of a personal pilgrimage.
