Vincent de Paul’s awareness of his own sinfulness taught him the beauty of Mercy. How, then, is Mercy beautiful?
- It is an attribute of God
- It binds communities to God and humans to one another
- It is the seedbed of compassion
Practicing mercy and compassion at every moment is a perfect way to repay one’s debt of gratitude for the mercy and compassion one has received in life.
