Learn from the saints who "made divine mercy their mission in life."

What is the title The Saints in Mercy meant to convey?  It is an expression of how the 27 saints, blesseds, venerables, and other holy people in this book witnessed to the faith not only through works of mercy but by living within God's mercy.  Through their stories we begin to see how, through perseverance and humility, their ordinary lives became extraordinary portraits of holiness because they allowed God's mercy to penetrate and overflow.

This book is one in a series of eight, promulgated by the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization, which are the official catechetical resources for the Jubilee Year of Mercy (December 8, 2015 - November 20, 2016). Pope Francis will be speaking on these themes in his weekly catechesis throughout the year. "At time we are called to gaze even more attentively on mercy so that we may become a more effective sign of the Father's action in our lives." -- Pope Francis

As Pope Francis says, we are, as a Church, called to "echo the word of God that resounds strong and clear as a message and a sign of pardon, strength, aid, and love."  These books are a guiding light for individuals and parishes to answer that call.
