MM3 – The Centrality of Mercy for Pope Francis, Pope Benedict XVI and Pope St. John Paul II – The Mystery of Mercy with Sr. Gill Goulding C.J. – A Discerning Hearts Podcast
n this episode, Sr. Gill will explore the significant continuity of the centrality of mercy for Pope Francis and for his predecessors Pope Benedict XVI and Pope St John Paul II. The common resonance of their language and the scriptural depth each brings to their understanding of mercy is both illuminating and encouraging. It is also very moving to see how Pope Francis owns his indebtedness to his predecessor when he says in Evangelii Gaudium , “I never tire of repeating those words of Benedict XVI which take us to the very heart of the Gospel: “Being a Christian is not the result of an ethical choice or a lofty idea, but the encounter with an event, a person, which gives life a new horizon and a decisive direction.” Both Popes reference the writings of Pope John Paul II: The joy of mercy becomes ever more evident.

I really enjoyed the conversation with Mike Pacer about his book “Mercy and Hope”. His writing style is enjoyable to read and his love for the subject is the best type of witness. God’s love provides a fire that is so precious to the soul and Mike helps us to realize how his extraordinary mercy and gift of hope feeds that flame in our souls in unseen and incredible ways. This is an important contribution to the universal understanding of God’s great care for his beloved children.

Episode 1 Introduction – They Mystery of Mercy with Sr. Gill Goulding C.J.
Pope Francis in accordance with his two predecessors has brought to public attention mercy as a determining characteristic of our God. He has elevated the conversation about mercy making clear that it involves a principle of dialogue and a use of discernment. The Holy Father’s own Ignatian formation as a Jesuit influences the way in which he understands a certain guidance and governance within the Church. In addition, he has recovered for the Church the importance of popular piety including devotion to the Sacred Heart. In a series of podcasts, Sr Gill Goulding CJ shares the fruit of a sabbatical year she spent working on this project on mercy.

IP#279 Fr. Michael Gaitley MIC – “The Second Greatest Story Ever Told” on Inside the Pages with Kris McGregor
I LOVE this book! “The Second Greatest Story Ever Told: Now is the Time of Mercy” is outstanding! Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC is able to once again provide just the right amount of insight, depth, and practical application to an important aspect of our collective spiritual experience! He brings forward to us the “School of Trust” whose curriculum is the continuing story of our salvation revealed to us over the last 2000 years and lived out and taught to us through the lives of the saints. Fr. Gaitley’s storytelling is thoroughly engaging. This a page turner you truly will not want to set aside. Filled with so many “ah-ha” moments you’ll be saying to yourself over and over again “Oh, I knew that, but I didn’t know I knew that” or “Ok, wow, now I see the connection!” This is also a book that you’ll want to give to others…follow through with that impulse, they will be glad you did! HIGHLY recommended!
“Mercy in the City: How to Feed the Hungry, Give Drink to the Thirsty, Visit the Imprisoned, and Keep Your Day Job” is an outstanding book! Kerry Weber has crafted a work that is an engaging page turner that is a joy to read. She shares her story of trying to “perform” all the Christian acts of mercy during Lent one year. What she encounters is the living Christ in each of her experiences. Kerry is a wonderful story-teller. After reading “Mercy in the City”, I dare you not to be inspired to take on the challenge to “Go in peace to love and serve the Lord”.
What a joy to have the opportunity to talk once again with Fr. Michael Gaitley at the 2012 CMN Trade Show in Dallas, TX.

John Paul II was to all of us. We all discuss “All Hearts a Fire” the new parish based program which is absolutely FANTASTIC! Be sure to check it out and pass it on!
]Msgr. Esseff begins a series of reflections on Divine Mercy and it’s importance in the life of the Church today. He exhorts us to remember that it is not about something that occurs outside of ourselves, but that the spirit of the Divine Mercy lives in us by virtue of our baptism and through our participation in the sacraments. And we are called to assist Jesus to reaching out to our brothers and sisters, in Him, with Him, and through Him.
