Fourth Faculty Retreat,
Mercy and Trust: Can We Trust in and Accept God's Mercy?
Directed by Dr. Julie Burkey
March 15, 2016
Pope Francis tells
us that mercy is the “well spring of joy, serenity, and peace” on which our
salvation depends. Yet, accepting mercy is often difficult for us. It is
necessary to first have trust; it is the gateway that can open our hearts to
God’s infinite mercy. We will explore the relationship between mercy and
trust while summoning the courage to say, as did St. Faustina Kowalska, “Jesus,
I trust in you.”
