As you know, Pope Francis has called us to a Year of Mercy... We all need mercy at different times in our lives and we all have an obligation to give our mercy to others. It is central to living the life God calls us to. Our Parish Life Commission and Women’s Group have made it possible to purchase 500 copies of the book Beautiful Mercy by twenty-four incredible authors, (including Pope Francis) who witness to the power of God’s mercy, provide simple practical tips on how to be an instrument of that mercy, and bring hope to anyone searching for deeper meaning in life. By focusing on the seven spiritual and seven corporal works of mercy, Beautiful Mercy provides an encounter with the heart of God. St. Elizabeth’s parish invites you to rediscover God’s unconditional love so you can share it with others now and always. Please pick up your copy of Beautiful Mercy in the mezzanine area following Masses beginning Easter weekend. God Bless You!
