Year Of Mercy, with the bull for that year attached at the end Within it there is memories of his youth and pastor experiences, talking about the reasons for choosing mercy as the theme, and other things He says that the Church should be open to show God s mercy thus showing autheticity , and go among people through charity, various events, etc.It is a light read, but get a clear view of the Pope s views on mercy he quotes examples from the Bible and other people throughout Catholic history saints and others The interviewer has done a great job in asking the right questions There s talk of confession how to be a good confessor, and how even just wanting to want to go to the confeesion is great God is always waiting, and never tires of forgiving, nor doing it numerous times Jesus Christ is the face of the Father s mercy was a particularly good sentence that still stands clear in my mind.And just as good as the interview, is the bull part among some things familiar from the interview before it, there is also suggestions for actions during the Year like pilgrimage and Lent inspiration , and appeal for those wanting to repent to come and return, plus asking for good coexistence between religions.A good book on mercy I read at least two other book of his sayings on mercy already, as I read my unread books of this author from newest towards the eldest that has its deserved place on one of my shelves The priest said he would go to the tabernacle and say to Jesus, I m sorry I forgive too much, but it was you who set the bad example Andrea Tornielli s book is the result of an interview he had with Pope Francis on the topic of mercy Pope Francis proclaimed the Holy Year of Mercy to begin on December 8, 2015 and end on November 20, 2016 This book, written in interview format, was published on November 24, 2015 and the unabridged audio CD on January 12, 2016.Pope Francis avoids dense theolo The priest said he would go to the tabernacle and say to Jesus, I m sorry I forgive too much, but it was you who set the bad example Andrea Tornielli s book is the result of an interview he had with Pope Francis on the topic of mercy Pope Francis proclaimed the Holy Year of Mercy to begin on December 8, 2015 and end on November 20, 2016 This book, written in interview format, was published on November 24, 2015 and the unabridged audio CD on January 12, 2016.Pope Francis avoids dense theological concepts and hierarchical language in his responses to interview questions He offers multiple personal stories and anecdotes that seem designed to make mercy accessible and inviting to lay people In a word, the tone of this book is pastoral.Two stories in particular capture the essence of pastoral mercy at the heart and ministry of Pope Francis The first involves a man with whom Francis was speaking about forgiveness Father, if you knew my lifeI ve done terrible things the man said to him Even better, Pope Francis replied, Go to Jesus He likes to hear about these things He forgets He has a special knack for forgetting The second regards a priest who once went to Pope Francis then a bishop or archbishop because he was concerned he forgave too much in the confessional Francis asked him how he handled those concerns The priest said he would go to the tabernacle and say to Jesus, I m sorry I forgive too much, but it was you who set the bad example These stories demonstrate the face of mercy Pope Francis earnestly desires the church to display There isn t the slightest whiff of legalism or hoops for the penitent to jump through in order to receive mercy save feelings of sorrow and the desire for mercy He asserts that it is easier for God to turn away from his anger than from his mercy because mercy is the essence of God s nature God would cease to be God if he failed to show mercy Pope Francis encourages confessors to search intently for the slightest opening in a person s heart in order to extend forgiveness He approvingly tells another story of a priest who was ministering to a man on his death bed The man had lived a licentious life and confessed difficulty of being sorry because he had enjoyed his sinful and knew he would live the same if he had to do it all again The priest granted absolution when the man said he felt sorry for his inability to be sorry.I listened to this book on audio CD during my work commute The interview questions and responses are read by different narrators giving a sense of listening to the actual interview Although the audio CD played nicely, a hard copy would allow a readereasily pause and reflect on meaningful sections should he or she wish to do so.The Pope Francis in this interview is the same pope the world has come to love and respect His pastoral heart reaches people well beyond the walls of the Catholic Church I recommend this book to anyone Catholic or non Catholic, Christian or non Christian who is drawn to the life and ministry of Pope Francis and would like to reflect on his understanding of the mercy of God Mercy is the face of Christ Period The sooner people stop parsing the Bible for individual gain, the sooner the world can heal No one has the right, nor the authority, to cast judgment on another If you want to judge someone, look in a mirror. The Lord never tires of forgiving never It is we who tire of asking him for forgiveness This is the face of a Church that doesn t reproach men for their fragility and their wounds but treats them with the medicine of mercy It is something I enjoyed and I would do it again How can I repent Yes, I am sorry that I am not sorry That sorrow is the opening that allows the merciful priest to give absolution These are the main messages that pope Francis tries to get across in this lit The Lord never tires of forgiving never It is we who tire of asking him for forgiveness This is the face of a Church that doesn t reproach men for their fragility and their wounds but treats them with the medicine of mercy It is something I enjoyed and I would do it again How can I repent Yes, I am sorry that I am not sorry That sorrow is the opening that allows the merciful priest to give absolution These are the main messages that pope Francis tries to get across in this little booklet I managed to read it in one day containing his interview with A Tornielli The pope s words, as usually, are simple and straightforward He does not relish in heavy theological or philosophical tractates It s a pleasure to read and it contains quite a few examples from real life Francis is not afraid to criticize some members of the clergy for being too strict and even corrupted He stresses out the need of humility, pure heart and acts of compassion over following the prescribed rules I admire Francis openness when he speaks of his own faults When he visits prisons he asks himself Why them and why not me He sees that he could easily be in their shoes He is also not ashamed to admit that he had cried almost all night when his favourite priest died, revealing his human face As much as I liked the book, I won t give it 5 stars because it gets a bit repetitive and I d appreciate includingtopics I hope one day we ll see an interview covering a larger spectrum of issues similar to Peter Seewald s interview with pope Benedict I recommend this book to all Catholics obviously as well as to those interested in spirituality and those who may have some issues with the Church and priests Francis does not try to shove any dogmas down your throat He simply speaks of God whose name is Mercy The subject closest to Pope Francis s heart is mercy, Divine Mercy As he has done so often since, Francis delivered his second homily as Pope and spoke off the cuff The message of Jesus is mercy For me, and I say this with humility, it is the Lord s strongest message This book has been a paradigm shift in my relationship with the God called Mercy Having seen myself as the prodigal from the parable of the two sons, who asked for, received, and squandered his inheritance, it was a radica The subject closest to Pope Francis s heart is mercy, Divine Mercy As he has done so often since, Francis delivered his second homily as Pope and spoke off the cuff The message of Jesus is mercy For me, and I say this with humility, it is the Lord s strongest message This book has been a paradigm shift in my relationship with the God called Mercy Having seen myself as the prodigal from the parable of the two sons, who asked for, received, and squandered his inheritance, it was a radical departure no pun intended to put myself in the place of the elder brother And yet whenever I look down on, judge, criticize or think myself superior to my fellows, I am him So what about the other mercy stories In the parable of the lost sheep, Jesus doesn t say what any of the 99 good sheep do while He is off looking for the lost one nor how they treat the wandering stray when he returns And yet these are critical questions The first half of The Name of God is Mercy is an interview with Vatican reporter Andrea Tornielli As always Pope Francis speaks from the heart How to summarize his thought He illustrates from his own background, favorite literature and of course Jesus parables why God deserves to be called Mercy , why mercy is the first attribute of God One phrase concept of Pope Francis I particularly like and have latched on to is the apostolate of the ear , an apostolate being a religious or evangelistic activity and of the ear refers to being Christ to our brothers and sister through deep active listening If our purpose is only to listen so until we see the opportunity to make our own point, we ve missed the point completely Everyone in the world is hungering for God and this often manifests itself in a longing to be heard God is always listening to us but without the witness of believers many will never learn any of this The second part of this book is the pope s BULL OF INDICTION OF THE EXTRAORDINARY JUBILEE OF MERCY, Misericordiae Vultus, which is already available on line This didn t lessen the value of the book for me as the interview seemed to provide explanatory background for the Year of Mercy, promulgated in the Papal Bull Also, I still prefer reading documents of this sort via the printed word in the comfort of my easy chair Kindles are fine but books are easier to flip back and forth and this was a document where it s most helpful A number of people waiting to read my copy Here are just a few of my favorite quotes Mercy does not erase the sin only God s forgiveness erases it, while mercy goes further It is like the sky we look at the sky when it is full of stars, but when the sun comes out in the morning, with all its light, we don t see the stars any That is what God s mercy is like a great light of love and tenderness because God forgives not with a decree, but with a caress He does it by caressing the wounds of our sin because he is involved in forgiving, he is involved in our salvation The prophet Ezekiel speaks of shame, and shame is a grace when one feels the mercy of God, he feels a great shame for himself and for his sin Etymologically, mercy derives from misericordis, which means opening one s heart to wretchedness And immediately we go to the Lord mercy is the divine attitude which embraces, it is God s giving himself to us, accepting us, and bowing to forgive Jesus said he came not for those who were good but for the sinners The Church Fathers teach us that a shattered heart is the most pleasing gift to God It is the sign that we are conscious of our sins, of the evil we have done, of our wretchedness, and of our need for forgiveness and mercy We talked about mercy and I asked him what he did when he had those doubts This is what he said I go to our chapel and stand in front of the tabernacle and say to Jesus Lord, forgive me if I have forgiven too much But you re the one who gave me the bad example The very fact that someone goes to the confessional indicates an initiation of repentance, even if it is not conscious Without that initial impulse, the person would not be there His being there is testimony to the desire for change Words are important, but the gesture is explicit And the gesture itself is important sometimes the awkward and humble presence of a penitent who has difficulty expressing himself is worththan another person s wordy account of their repentance None of us should speak of injustice without thinking of all the injustice we have committed before God We must never forget our origins, the mud of which we were made, and this counts above all for those who are ordained HOW can mercy be taught to children By getting them used to the stories of the Gospel and to the parables By talking with them, and above all by having them experience mercy By helping them understand that in life we sometimes make mistakes and fall but that the important thing is to always get back up An excellent book to take to prayer time This was a gift from a friend and it was the book I began Lent with The first part of the book is a Q A between a Vatican reporter and the pope As usual, Pope Francis is personable and clear answering the series of questions about mercy and its centrality in our Christian faith.What might surprise many readers is that Francis spends an equal amount of time talking about sin, repentance, confession, and reconciliation One can t receive or even recognize mercy unless one knows why it has been e This was a gift from a friend and it was the book I began Lent with The first part of the book is a QA between a Vatican reporter and the pope As usual, Pope Francis is personable and clear answering the series of questions about mercy and its centrality in our Christian faith.What might surprise many readers is that Francis spends an equal amount of time talking about sin, repentance, confession, and reconciliation One can t receive or even recognize mercy unless one knows why it has been extended That means you ve got to know you did something wrong And then fully receiving mercy means you will respond to the love that has been offered This isn t just the easy mercy that secular society thinks of when the word is used It is the real, full blown deal that changes lives.Also of interest to many will be that Francis continually mentions his predecessors as bearing the same message to the people John Paul II, Benedict XVI, Paul VI, etc and their writings are continually referenced People often act as if Pope Francis s ideas are completely new and different when, of course, it is the same Catholic faith simply shining through a different person It s part of what makes Pope Francis interesting to watch He s not easy to fit into the categories with which so many want to label him.The last part of the book is the text of Pope Francis s Bull of Indiction of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy It is as if the first part of the book is Francis talking you through his points and then the last part is thestructured presentation.I found this book inspirational and an easy read It is another look into the mind of this pope who so many admire and a window into the ways of true Christian life May we all move closer to being authentic examples of it One of my yearly goals for 2018 is to read one spiritual book a month This was the February book I chose to read.er listen to, on my morning commute this week And it

of this book, I felt like I was listening to a conversation between two friends There were quite a few personal stories and experiences Francis shared in here but my favorite of them was when he said that every time he enters a prison he thinks of the prisoners and says to himself and probably God , Why them and not me Wow That line stopped me in my tracks and made me pause and reflect Talk about a man leading with true humility, compassion and selfless love Talk about someone who understands that we are all alike and in no way, are any one of us better than any one else Why them and not me, indeed What a great nugget of wisdom for me to carry Very happy with this read
