Back in print by popular demand! The Mercy of God November 30,1980 A deep examination of the role of mercy — both God’s mercy and also the need for human mercy — introducing the biblical parable of the Prodigal Son as a central theme. The idea of God’s mercy is an intensely personal one for John Paul II. He had a strong love for the Divine Mercy, a devotion that he later instituted for the entire Catholic Church in 2000 as Divine Mercy Sunday. The Pope died on the vigil of Divine Mercy Sunday, in 2005, and is being beatified on Divine Mercy Sunday in 2011. 80 pages, booklet.
