Mercy in a Box

October 4, 2016
Comments

I love being Catholic. To me, being Catholic is the greatest gift of my life—it’s sort of like being adopted by a wealthy family, and being welcomed into an opulent mansion and told it’s your new home. And one of my favorite rooms in that home is the confessional. You heard me right. I love confession, too. It’s mercy in a box—and it’s mind-bogglingly, head-spinningly, endorphin-pumpingly, splendiferously cool.

For all our sins, our limitations, our failings, for all the many times we have fallen, Jesus has looked upon us and drawn near to us. He has given us his hand and showed us mercy.

~Pope Francis
