Mercy means showing love and respect to our neighbour. We can be merciful by doing helpful and charitable actions. However, being able to show mercy to somebody is not an easy task. It can be the harder option to take when it is much easier to think about ourselves instead. In the scripture, God teaches us that love conquers evil, joy overcomes hatred, and compassion is the source of forgiveness. Following the celebration of Divine Mercy Sunday at the weekend, let us remind ourselves of the loving mercy of Jesus, the mercy shown to us everyday and the mercy we should show to everyone that we meet. Jesus has given us an example to follow, it is something which we can all achieve.
