What does mercy mean, anyway? Letting people off the hook? Having lower standards? Accepting shoddy work? Having pity on the destitute? Though we often speak of "mercy," there is great confusion about what exactly it is, and how we should practice it.
In this two-talk series, Dr. Bergsma delves into the concept and words for mercy in the Old and New Testaments, showing that "mercy" in the Bible is a much richer reality than we realized. Along the way, we discover the close connections between mercy, the Psalms, the Mass, the Eucharist, and almsgiving. Biblical mercy always draws us closer into the family of God!
