Mercy: The Heart of Faith, the Reason for Hope
Fr. Dan Crosby, O.F.M. Cap., L.Th.
Celebrate the Holy Year of Mercy in this spiritually edifying course.
Mercy is one of God’s great gifts to humankind. Now, in 12 lectures by spiritual leader Fr. Dan Crosby, you will explore mercy in Scripture, Church teaching, and modern culture.
In addition to exploring scriptural passages, you will look at Dives in Misericordia (“Rich in Mercy”), Saint John Paul II’s encyclical on mercy. Divine Mercy marked every aspect of his pontificate, and you will see how Pope Francis carries on this legacy. Indeed, as Pope Francis writes, mercy is “the ultimate and supreme act by which God comes to meet us” (Misericordiae Vultus).
With Fr. Crosby as your guide, you will gain fresh insights into God’s gifts of new life, love, and forgiveness. As you journey through the Gospels, you will see mercy embodied in the Parable of the Prodigal Son, the Beatitudes, and the actions of Jesus. And, perhaps most powerfully, you will reflect on the fullness of Mercy made manifest in Jesus’ Death on the Cross, the ultimate expression of forgiveness.
In Mercy: The Heart of Faith, the Reason for Hope, you will explore methods for living a life of forgiveness in our modern world—a world that too often seems to lose sight of mercy. In doing so, you will find peace, transformation, and renewal. Experience this life-giving power today.
