If the world needs the Father’s mercy, then our call is to embody it. The spiritual and corporal acts of mercy have long been given as a guide, yet feeding the hungry, burying the dead, sharing our knowledge and bearing wrongs patiently are overwhelming undertakings that often elude us. Spend some time this Lent with mercy in your own experience, and spot the little ways for injecting mercy that will change your heart and overflow into the lives of others.
