May compassion permeate our encounters with others
by Renae Bauer
Jesus shows mercy to the disciples by proclaiming peace, sending the Holy Spirit, and instructing them to forgive.
The apostles show Jesus' mercy to the people by blessing them with signs and wonders.
The people show Jesus' mercy to the sick by carrying them to where the apostles’ shadows might fall on them.
The Father sends Jesus. Jesus sends us. Let’s give the world all the mercy we can conjure.
