In 2008, Pope Benedict XVI gave us "a mandate" to "go forth and be witnesses of God's mercy, a source of hope for every person and for the whole world."
In Pope Benedict's Divine Mercy Mandate, you'll discover teachings and instructions from Pope Benedict XVI to help you implement this mandate. The author, Dave Came, provides personal examples and summaries of the Pope's main points. The final chapter reveals how Pope Benedict is living the mandate himself as our Mercy Pope, building on the legacy of his beloved predecessor Pope John Paul II. Paperback.
On the world stage and in the life of the Catholic Church, John Paul II became known as the Great Mercy Pope devoting his second encyclical to God?'s mercy, forgiving his would-be assassin, making Sr. Faustina, the great apostle of Divine Mercy, a saint and establishing Divine Mercy Sunday as a universal feast day in the Church.Now, more than three years into his own papacy, his successor, Benedict XVI, has become known as a Pope of Mercy in his own right. He opened the first ever World Apostolic Congress on Mercy in Rome last April and at its conclusion called the participants to go forth and be witnesses of God?'s mercy. Further, during a pastoral visit to Poland in 2006, this Pope of Mercy called the sick to be eloquent witnesses God?'s mercy and said he was passing on the Flame of Mercy to the youth he met. Discover in Pope Benedict?'s Divine Mercy Mandate, how the Holy Father spoke of receiving a gift of Divine Mercy when he was elected Pope in 2005 and how he then stressed Divine Mercy as an integral dimension of a Christian?'s faith and prayer when he led the Church in 2006 as the new Pontiff in celebrating Divine Mercy Sunday. Learn of his insights on Gods mercy in his bestselling book Jesus of Nazareth and of his stunning reflection on how even the betrayal of Christ by Judas reveals God?'s mercy.
