Brother René Stockman, Superior General of the Brothers of Charity, has published a new book titled Be Merciful, As Your Father is Merciful.
On the occasion of the Holy Year of Mercy in 2016, Brother René Stockman saw there was a connection with the Congregation of the Brothers of Charity as well as a rare opportunity to seriously think about what mercy can mean in everyday life. Because mercy is indeed another name for love. And is mercy not the tangible reflection of God’s love in our lives through his compassion and forgiveness for us?
Brother Stockman reflects on the mystery of the Divine Mercy, he leads us into the depth of God’s unconditional love for humanity and invites us to respond in faith that works through love. He holds up for us icons of God’s merciful love such as Father Triest, St John Marie Vianney, and Padre Pio among others.
