Part 3:  Exploring the Meaning and Need For Mercy




Be merciful, just as also your Father is merciful.

Luke 6:36

In this presentation, Fr. Jeff explores conceptions of sins and what it means to celebrate mercy.  Here is the reference list for the video. 


Be sure and watch Fr. Jeff's previous videos in this three part series on the Jubilee Year of Mercy:


On September 14, 2016 Fr. Jeff did a one part presentation "What Comes After the Jubilee Year of Mercy?"  This overlaps with the three part series above but does offer some new insights.


Other Presentations on Mercy

"The Journey to Jesus: Acts of Mercy" - In this presentation Fr. Jeff begins from his presentation "The Journey to Jesus" and moved to the acts of mercy as a way to bring Jesus to the world and for us to see Jesus in our neighbor.


"Why Is It So Hard to Forgive Myself (and others)?" - We know we need forgiveness, yet it can be hard to think that God will forgive us.  We think we are not worthy.  We might think that because we keep committing the same sins over and over that God will stop forgiving us.  When someone offends us over and over, we might want to stop forgiving them.  Fortunately for us, God is not like that.  What other reasons do we have to think we shouldn’t be forgiven?  Why else might we not want to forgive someone else?
