The Name of God is Mercy by Pope FrancisSTOP THE PRESS!
I, Caidyn, an old atheist who is now more agnostic and integrative with my religious viewpoints, added a book by a Pope, to my favorites list. This is revolutionary news. This day should be noted in calendars. If my mom sees this, her heart is going to stop.
But... I love Pope Francis. Seriously. When he was elected when I was a junior in high school, I had a good feeling about him. Then, he started making his statements about LGBT (Who am I to judge?) and climate and I was sold. He is an amazing man who will not be forgotten. Hes come at the right time, and hes bringing Catholicism to the 21st century with his preaching of mercy, love, and forgiveness.
While this book wasnt revolutionary, it struck me. It got to me. I listened to this at work while cleaning an inch of grease off some compressor machines, and it was just amazing. How he explained some of Jesuss teachings and what they mean to him. How being a confessor for so many years lets him see Christs true messages.
I would never convert to Catholicism, but I love Pope Francis.
God of Compassion, in Mercy Befriend Us
Indeed, St. Coming to his senses, he returns to his father in order to ask if he could work as a hired hand. However, when he returns home, the Father not only welcomes him back but throws an expensive party. To the world, this seems crazy! Anyone else who acted like that would be considered crazy, at best a soft touch and at worst an old fool. We are to learn from this parable that when it comes to mercy and compassion, God spares no expense. This son of mine was lost and has been found, he was dead and has come back to life.

As well, the Church cannot close the door on anyone, Francis asserts—on the contrary, its duty is to go out into the world to find its way into the consciousness of people so that they can assume responsibility for, and move away from, the bad things they have done.

Instead of giving us what we deserve, God has shown mercy again and again, not to take away our responsibility, but to give us a chance to repent and be saved. We can ask ourselves: What have we done with that opportunity? Indeed, we are commanded to be merciful as God is merciful! The Bible even speaks about compassion and care for animals. Compassion is to share the pain and suffering The Bible often mentions suffering. Though this can refer to outward, physical suffering, in the New Covenant it mostly applies to the suffering that occurs when you deny your own sinful lusts and desires and put them
