Sister Joan Chittister tackles the virtue of mercy and its connection to forgiveness. She feels strongly that most of us don't understand either mercy or forgiveness and don't offer them enough to others. She challenges us to stop judging, accusing, and criticizing those we label sinners and to see ourselves in their number. She invites us to be realistic about our own actions before we throw that first stone at another. This is spiritual reading at its very best. Sister Joan's insights invite all of us to seek holiness through receiving and then offering God's tender mercy and forgiveness to one another. In doing so we become holy. There is no other way. Joan's is a prophet's voice telling us that when love breaks through in even one person, the effect for the world is immense. Weep and heal, she writes, willing us to to find, through courageous self reflection and forgiveness, the fullness of our humanity and in that, the kind of love that will lift this world.
