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 during
the coming Jubilee Year of Mercy 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
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.
