God’s “I.D.”

Jan 13, 2016

“Mercy is God’s identity card.”

A few hours ago in Rome Pope Francis new book was launched. It is entitled: “The Name of God is Mercy.” Thanks be to God, and to the digital age, within minutes of the launch I was able to begin reading it on Kindle. It is immediately captivating and transforming. Highly readable and well worth it’s three-cups-of-coffee Kindle price-tag.

If you read nothing else for this Jubilee Year of Mercy, read this little book.
