God’s love for us assumes a very special character: namely, that of mercy.
Mercy is love bending over misery to relieve it so to draw us closer to the Author of Life.
“Mercy will always be greater than any sin, no one can put a limit on the love of the all-forgiving God. Just by looking at Him, just raising our eyes from ourselves and our wounds, we leave an opening for the action of His grace. Jesus performs miracles with our sins, with what we are, with our nothingness, with our wretchedness.” (Pope Francis, The Name of God is Mercy)
