  • God's Mercy

  • Mercy Is Free, But Never Cheap

    "Mercy is always costly when it is permitted to be what it is and achieve its end, since the eradication of evil demands total conversion from evil…which is always costly to the sinner.

    "And, as Jesus reveals fully on the cross, mercy is also always costly to the giver of mercy. "

  • God of Wrath or God of Mercy?

    "People reading the Diary of St. Faustina for the first time are sometimes surprised to find passages in which Jesus tells her about God's "wrath" and "anger," and not just about His mercy. ... If God is so merciful and loving, why does He speak to St. Faustina about His wrath and anger?"

    Read more of Which is He: A God of Wrath or of Mercy? by Dr. Robert Stackpole at The Divine Mercy.

  • The Hound Of Heaven
    by Francis Thompson

    I fled Him down the nights and down the days
    I fled Him down the arches of the years
    I fled Him down the labyrinthine ways
    Of my own mind, and in the midst of tears
    I hid from him, and under running laughter.
    Up vistaed hopes I sped and shot precipitated
    Adown titanic glooms of chasmèd fears
    From those strong feet that followed ...
