Learn from the saints who "made divine mercy their mission in life."
What is the title The Saints in Mercy meant to convey? It is an expression of how the 27 saints, blesseds, venerables, and other holy people in this book witnessed to the faith not only through works of mercy but by living within God's mercy. Through their stories we begin to see how, through perseverance and humility, their ordinary lives became extraordinary portraits of holiness because they allowed God's mercy to penetrate and overflow.
The Saints in Mercy is one of a series of eight books, the official catechetical resource for the jubilee of Mercy created by the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization at the request of Pope Francis.
As Pope Francis says, we are, as a Church, called to "echo the word of God that resounds strong and clear as a message and a sign of pardon, strength, aid, and love." These books are a guiding light for individuals and parishes to answer that call.
