Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J.

Mercy: A Bible Study Guide for Catholics

"God has this joy, when one of us sinners goes to Him and asks His forgiveness." - Pope Francis

Fr. Pacwa leads us to a deeper understanding of mercy through the study of Israel's long, slow struggle to experience it. By looking carefully at the Israelites experience of turning away from and returning to God, we begin to understand that God's love, shown through His mercy, is more powerful than sin.

Mercy's Gaze
Vinny Flynn

Mercy's Gaze

100 Readings from Scripture and the Diary of St. Faustina.

Mercy's Gaze begins with a foreword and introduction guiding readers to prayerful pondering that will encourage spiritual transformation as they gaze on Jesus in the Divine Mercy Image. Readers will see how the teachings of the Scriptures and St. Faustina's Diary are in harmony, drawing them to a deeper understanding of how the message of God's merciful love is at the very heart of the Gospel. Themes include: The Divine Mercy Message and Devotion, The Eucharist and Thanksgiving, Confession and Forgiveness, The Will of God, Redemptive Suffering, The Call to Sinners, and Mercy, My Hope, among others.

Each topic has related sets of passages from both Scripture and the Diary. The format is intended to inspire prayerful reflection for 100 days, but it is the perfect companion for daily prayer, and can be picked up and used for inspiration or help with a particular struggle at any time. Includes pages for writing your own reflections, a full color reproduction of the Vilnius Divine Mercy Image, and an appendix of prayers

Designed to be used throughout the day, this book will help your family speak to God, turn to Him for help, listen to Him, and praise Him. What better gift could you give them?

As Flynn writes in his introduction:
"So, when we gaze upon Christ ... - not only with our eyes but with our minds and hearts - we "rediscover" the Father. We recognize that it's His hand raised over us in blessing, His mercy gushing forth from the Heart of Jesus. We come to know who Christ is, who the Father is, and who we are called to be, and we are progressively transformed into living images of mercy."

"17 Divine Mercy Conversions

Written by Felix Carroll, Loved, Lost, Found is a collection of beautiful stories of everyday people who discover God's extraordinary mercy. They include a former abortionist, a blind man, an unfaithful husband, a former cult member, a rape victim, a prisoner, a former "workaholic," and a survivor of the "Miracle on the Hudson" plane crash, among others.

The book begins with a story about Maureen Digan, whose miraculous healing in 1981 led to the beatification of Sr. Maria Faustina Kowalska. Now recognized as a saint, this nun's revelations in the 1930s "known today as the message of Divine Mercy " play a major role in each one of the conversion stories in this collection. Through St. Faustina, Jesus reiterates for our times the Gospel message that He is Love and Mercy itself, calling us to turn to Him in trust, receive His mercy, and extend His mercy to others.

The Parables of Mercy

Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization

"Jesus reveals the nature of God as that of a Father who never gives up until he has forgiven the wrong and overcome rejection with compassion and mercy." ~ Pope Francis

Many of the parables in this book are familiar to us - the prodigal son, the lost coin, the lost sheep, the rish man and Lazarus. The Parables of Mercy provides us with an invitation to see them in a new way, recognizing ourselves in the stories. Through personal reflection we see that mercy is a powerful force that overcomes all, and fills our hearts with God's unbridled pardon and fierce love for us.

Mercy in the Fathers of the Church
Pastoral Resources for Living the Jubilee

Mercy in the Fathers of the Church

Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization

"He does not extend his mercy to them because they know him, but that they may know him." ~ Saint Augustine

The Fathers of the Church, our first pastors and teachers, knew that they needed God's mercy and forgiveness. Pope Francis believes that we can learn to be more merciful through their experience of mercy.

Mercy in the Fathers of the Church includes an in-depth look at St. Augustine, the Preacher of Mercy, and an anthology of passages from Church Fathers including St. Maximus, St. Cyril, St. John Chrysostom, St. Ambrose, St. Basil, St. Polycarp, St. Ignatius of Antioch, and many more.

Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy

Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy

Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization

"Jesus introduces us to these works of mercy in his preaching so that we can know whether or not we are living as his disciples." ~ Pope Francis

Jesus asks us to follow him by identifying with and showing compassion to people most in need. It is a holy calling. Pope Francis has said, "The preaching of Jesus is made visible once more in the response of faith which Christians are called to offer by their witness." The Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy outlines the roots of mercy as presented in Scripture, and then delves deeply into each of the corporal and spiritual works, enlivening our commitment to our common humanity.

Psalms of Mercy
Pastoral Resources for Living the Jubilee

Psalms of Mercy

Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization

"In a special way the Psalms bring to the fore the grandeur of his merciful action." ~ Pope Francis

The Psalms have a strong attraction - to believers and nonbelievers alike - because they reflect our deepest experiences as human beings. They are full of the highs and lows of everyday life, the triumphs and losses, our strengths and weaknesses, the beautiful and the painful. They also point to our human search for a merciful and loving God. Praying with these ten Psalms of Mercy will help us come more deeply into God's presence, and reveal God's mercy and tenderness for each one of us.
