Night of Mercy in Krakow

 

At the Night of Mercy, during World Youth Day in Krakow, Bishop Robert Barron gave an excellent talk about the power of the cross. He said that “forgiveness means entering into dysfunction, pain and sin, and addressing it”, and that is what Jesus did on the cross. His invitation to all the young people there to “do the hard work of forgiving love” was really powerful and stood out to me as one of the best explanations of what being merciful is really all about.
