Becoming a Parish of Mercy: A New Vision for Total Parish Evangelization
Mercy, says Matt Halbach, doesn’t always wait for an apology. Mercy actively pursues. Like the merciful father who sees his son a long way off and goes out to embrace him, the Church is called to go out and accompany people, bringing the kingdom of God to all.
This book is be a great resource for parishes, helping them to understand Pope Francis’ vision of a more merciful church, and how the actions and attitudes of a merciful church can be applied in various facets of parish life. The reflection questions at the end of every chapter make it a useful tool for small group discussion.
