"Charity gave me the key to my vocation. I understood that the Church had a Heart and that this Heart was burning with love. I understood that Love comprised all vocations, that Love was everything, that it embraced all times and a word, that it was eternal! My vocation, at last I have found it...My vocation is Love!"

Remembering God's Mercy

Mercy is, in effect, God’s love in the face of our sinfulness. Love plus misery equals mercy…Mercy was God’s gift in the Old Testament; the fullness of mercy is God’s gift to us in the New Testament. Mercy passes through the humanity of Christ and is made available to us in the heart of Jesus, which is the tabernacle of mediation between God and man.
—Justin Cardinal Rigali
