Father Paul HolmesThird Faculty Retreat, Mercy and Forgiveness: A Spiritual Pilgrimage
Directed by Father Paul Holmes

February 2, 2016

Mercy is a journey — often characterized as moving from a place of pain and sorrow to a place of compassion and forgiveness. Many of us had the chance to watch and listen to those who spoke to the murderer of nine parishioners in a Charleston, South Carolina church: Within hours of their tragic loss, and to the amazement of many, family members forgave their loved ones’ killer.  Most of us have been invited to make a much less dramatic, though perhaps just as arduous, pilgrimage from pain to forgiveness. What can we do to prepare our hearts for such a journey?

Father Paul Holmes, Distinguished University Professor of Servant Leadership, has taught moral and sacramental  theology in the Department of Religion for 27 years.
