Living God's Mercy
Mercy Mission (Part III of III)

Today, we bring you part III of the “Mercy Mission” which Father Michael Najim preached just prior to Holy Week.  In part one, he spoke of understanding God's mercy. Part two dealt with experiencing God's mercy.  And today, Father will focus on living God's mercy and giving it to others.

Part three of this “Mercy Mission” begins at 8:55 and ends at 32:55.  Naturally, you may watch the whole video if you like. Again, we apologize in advance, for ads which we were unable to remove, and we ask your mercy! It’s the only way we could bring you this excellent resource.

As in the previous two parts, Father Najim mentions a few references in his talk … and we list some of them below as a help to you our readers … and listeners!
