Of all the beatitudes, these words of Jesus speak to my heart today. In a world which can be brutal and unforgiving, Jesus offers mercy. That divine mercy is always there for us. We claim it by offering mercy to others. What is the mercy of God? It is full of loving kindness and gentleness. God accepts us as we are and sets us on the road of transformation to become the people he has created us to be.
Happy are the merciful for they will receive mercy.
