Mercy is love that goes beyond justice. I just thought of Jesus, did you? Good. I am specifically referring to the love God has for each one of us. It’s the love and forgiveness we are proclaiming in this Holy Year of Mercy, which emphasizes the boundless love and mercy of Christ for those who turn to Him with trust and in repentance for the ways we have strayed and have failed to respond in love to God and our neighbors.
