includes all handouts, prayer services, talk outlines and leader notes

Mercy is the compassionate care for others whereby one takes on the burden of another as one's own. It is an active quality of the virtue of charity, motivated by love. While mercy is often treated as a rather benign term, its power is conveyed more accurately by looking at it in a scriptural context.

This parish based retreat will help you give your people an experience of mercy which translates into their own daily lives of mercy. It begins with an exercise to help people be in touch with how they have themselves received or extended mercy and ends with a written plan to help them take and live the spiritual and corporal works of mercy in their lives. It includes a celebration of Reconciliation and Eucharist and these notes provide you with everything you need to succeed with these retreats in your parish.
