“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”.

“Kerry Weber is one of the liveliest, brightest, most provocative and most articulate voices on the Catholic scene today. With stories that are both profound and lighthearted (and often at the same time) her marvelous new book will help you locate mercy in your daily life. This is that rare book that will indeed make you laugh and cry, but also pray and serve. Highly recommended.”
– James Martin, SJ author of My Life with the Saints and Jesus: A Pilgrimage
“This engaging book will take you to the heart of what it means to try to practice mercy in a cruel world. It helps us to remember that so much of what we take for granted — food, water to drink, clothing, and shelter — are a luxury to many, even in a land of plenty. From a soup line and homeless shelter to death row on San Quentin, the author makes us see the humanity of those we’d prefer to ignore. And if you’re looking for a book that cites both Basil the Great and ‘The Muppets Take Manhattan,’ this is for you!”
– Kathleen Norris, author of The Cloister Walk and Acedia and Me
