How do we teach about Mercy?
As we gear up for the Jubilee of Mercy, this set of teaching suggestions and resources will be invaluable to you. Mercy is taught by example and story more than by an academic presentation. But how can our catechists and teachers learn to do this?

This set of notes does the hard work of preparation for you!
These notes include:
How to tell "the story of Mercy"
Lessons on Mercy
Mercy defined with easy-to-use talking points
How to use fine arts to tell the story
Stories of Mercy in the Bible
Teachings on Mercy from the Bible
Quotes from Pope Francis on Mercy
Pope Francis' Prayer for Mercy for the Jubilee
Notes on how to use our PowerPoint on Mercy
Notes on praying with the Salve Regina, which Pope Francis has asked us all to do this year
