Jubilee Year of Mercy

Jubilee Year of Mercy

From Thinkingfaith

"I am hard put to find any other popular medium that so effectively articulates Pope Francis’ recent exhortation to the Church to be a ‘convincing herald of mercy’[2] as that ballad Mercy Now. When I hear Mary Gauthier, a plain, unadorned woman with a plain, unaffected southern drawl, singing this plain, unembellished ballad recognising that every single one of us, from our father and brother to our Church and country to all living things, could use a little mercy now, I am thoroughly taken in. And sitting in the chapel on Holy Saturday night listening to the Easter Vigil readings, I am brought to mind of Mercy Now." (Karen Eliasen in Thinking Faith)
