“To have an inspiring start of this day, the general board (of the Brothers of the CMM) had invited Fr. Gregory Gay to be the key-note speaker. His lecture was very inspiring indeed, and we would like to share his words with you, by providing the text (see link below) and a video compilation.
F. Gay give an overview – “Today, I will explore the virtue of mercy, starting with our contemporary situation, and then retrieving its biblical and spiritual foundations. I will look at the impact of virtue of mercy and its influence on the Church and Christian life. Then I will reflect developing a “culture of mercy” in a world often seen as merciless. After that, I will offer some reflection questions for reflection and discussion. Finally, I will close with a short meditation on mercy, taken from a talk given by Pope Francis to parish priests in Rome, which I think, is a wonderful witness to mercy.”
