Mercy and mission

“There is a wonderful interplay between mercy and mission. Experiencing mercy renders us missionaries of mercy, and to be missionaries allows us to grow ever more in the mercy of God. Therefore, let us take our Christian calling seriously and commit to live as believers, because only then can the Gospel touch a person’s heart and open it to receive the grace of love, to receive this great, all-welcoming mercy of God.” — Pope Francis

Reflection: Pause for a moment to take stock of where you are at mentally, physically, and spiritually today. Which aspects of your life feel most connected to the love and hope God wants for you? If you made a list of the top ten tasks that you worked on today (the top slot getting the most attention), where would shaping how you live based on the Gospel and the teachings of the Catholic fall on that list?
