    Bringing Love to a Hurting World

    Our world often is confused by what true mercy looks like. Pope Francis calls us to a culture of encounter, to recognize the dignity in the person in front of us. This encounter leads us to action on their behalf by serving others through works of mercy. In so doing, our hearts change and we learn to be merciful as our Heavenly Father is merciful.
