What is Mercy?

Mercy is the disposition to be kind and forgiving. Mercy is to feel compassion at the suffering of others and to reach out to help them. Pope John Paul II calls mercy “love’s second name.”

Mercy is an attribute of God. There are many instances in the Bible where God should have punished mankind but instead He showed mercy and compassion. Ex34:6, 2Cor1:3, Eph2:4, Mic7:18-19. “Proclaim that mercy is the greatest attribute of God. All the works of My hands are crowned with mercy.” Jesus to St. Maria Faustina (Diary 301).

God delights in showing us mercy and we as the children of God should also imitate Him and show mercy to fellow humanity. Col3:12-13.
