The name of God is mercy

Catholics celebrate this Sunday as divine mercy Sunday in honor of Sister Faustina, who had visions of Jesus in which he spoke of his mercy to everyone. So great is his mercy that his name can even be said to be Mercy, as pope Francis has said. Our muslim cousins call Allah the Compassionate, the Merciful. Our Jewish forerunners have handed down to us many psalms of his mercy, such as Psalm 118.
