Receive Mercy

Be confident that you can receive God’s mercy! So many people desire the healing love of the Father but don’t think they are worthy to receive it or don’t know where to find it. Jesus Christ promises us, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find” (Matthew 7:7).

Trusting in this promise of Christ, Pope Francis reminds us that “mercy will always be greater than any sin, and no one can place limits on the love of God who is ever ready to forgive” (Misericordiae Vultus, 3).

Find mercy in our Christian community through the Sacrament of Reconciliation and through the many ministries of mercy and healing. So many people are reaching out to love you whether you are in need of forgiveness, suffering a loss, struggling with addiction, or just trying to get by.
