9781612789965: Mercy Matters: Opening Yourself to the Life-Changing Gift

Wherever there are Christians, everyone should find an oasis of mercy. Pope Francis

Whether dealing with adoption, sobriety, bullying, the Boston Marathon bombing, or friendship with a Jehovah s Witness, Mathew Schmalz s own life serves as the backdrop for his reflections on the complex nature of mercy how we give it, and how we receive it. From a home for lepers in India to a halfway house in the Bronx, the author probes his experiences to reveal mercy as a virtue that doesn t necessarily come easily, but is infinitely rewarding.

Discussion and reflection questions at the end of each chapter allow you to dig deeper into your own ideas about mercy, what it looks like in your life, and how to move toward a more merciful existence. Perfect for individual or group study.

From the Author:

I wrote Mercy Matters for the Extraordinary Holy Year of Mercy.  I hope that, by sharing my own experiences of mercy, readers will feel empowered to share their own stories of mercy. The book is designed for book club and group discussions, as well as for private study and reflection. You can read an interview with me about the book in America Magazine: bit.ly/1TYzdTE

About the Author:

Mathew N. Schmalz is Associate Professor of Religious Studies at the College of the Holy Cross, Worcester, Massachusetts.  He is married, has two daughters, a large standard Poodle named Harold, and a gecko named Mr. Wiggles.
