Jubilee Year of Mercy

Why a liberal arts degree is completely worth it

It just might help you become a more virtuous person. And isn't that what it's all about?

When you’re hurt too badly to pray, let the Spirit do the groaning

We can’t escape being injured or injuring others, but we can allow God to bring mercy to birth in us

9 Times the mercy: Praying a novena for the good of someone you dislike

Praying with intensity and focus for my enemy’s good can’t help but change me

What my mother-in-law taught me about my own cold heart

I took her into my home as a boarder, and not as a human being worthy of love

Raising a disabled child in a “death with dignity” world

Yes, it’s difficult. Great things always are, and we are in the middle of a great mystery.

Praying the Jesus Prayer: Mercy with every breath

How a simple, timeless petition lets us truly “pray without ceasing”

The one thing that may be stopping you from being a Christian

Most of us struggle to forgive, but God delights in it and demands that we forgive too.

Pope Francis not slowing down despite Rome’s sultry August

Pontiff makes a "sneak" visit to nuns, has lunch with refugees, spends time talking with rescued sex workers

Ringleading the circus to Mass and finding Mercy

Getting the family to church on time is no small feat and a little human kindness goes a long way

“Do you believe in God, Dad?”

That simple question opened up a floodgate that resonated again when mercy showed up
