If God limited himself to only justice, he would cease to be God. ~ God goes beyond justice with mercy and forgiveness. ~ Sad to say, we must admit that the practice of mercy is waning in the wider culture. ~ However, without a witness to mercy, life becomes fruitless and sterile. ~ Mercy is the force that reawakens us to new life and instils in us the courage to look to the future with hope.
—Pope Francis, Statement opening the Year of Mercy
