In His Mercy Endures Forever: Encountering God’s Mercy, author Stephen
S. Wilbricht, CSC, explores how we gather at Mass as an assembly called together
by a merciful God. Highlighting mercy as a defining hallmark of our life in
Christ, this resource will help parishes break open what it means to belong to a compassionate God. At Mass, we
implore God’s mercy during the Kyrie and Prayer of the Faithful, are approached
by God during the Liturgy of the Word, and eat and drink the Body and Blood of
Christ, God’s gift to us.
Throughout this 32-page booklet, Fr. Wilbricht shows that the mercy we
are extended during the Mass requires a response. He explains that, we who
share in the Eucharist are to bring Christ’s resurrected life to the world. We
live out our mission as bearers of mercy to others.
Reading this booklet, parishioners will see how participation in the
Mass is rehearsal for living in the Kingdom of God, where justice and mercy
Questions for discussion and reflection at the end of each short chapter
will help individuals and groups examine their understanding of the Mass and
their role as Christians to bring God’s gift of mercy to all they encounter.
