Be merciful

Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect. Be compassionate as your heavenly Father is compassionate. Be sons of your Father who is in heaven.

Jesus is the face of the Father. "No one has ever seen God. The only-begotten, who is in the bosom of the Father, he has made him known."

We are called to the face of the Father, the merciful face of the Father. We are called to be signs and bearers of his love. This is our deepest mission.

We are transformed and transfigured into his likeness by prolonged exposure to him in prayer, by prolonged exposure to his Word, and by attentive contact with those who are most in need.
