Today’s topics: The Corporal Works of Mercy in the City

Summary of today’s show: Kerry Weber, a single young Catholic woman living in New York City, wanted to go beoyond the typical Lenten sacrifices in 2012 and so she came up with a plan to develop a mindset of mercy by performing the corporal works of mercy in a deliberate way over those 40 days. She chronicles that adventure in her new book, “Mercy in the City” and joins Michael Lavigne and Domenico Bettinelli to discuss what inspired her, how it went, the lessons she learned, and the surprises that she encountered. She also discusses her visit to Rwanda in 2013 under the auspices of Catholic Relief Services to understand the role of mercy in the remarkable reconciliation that has happened in the country over the past 20 years. Kerry said she draws inspiration from a quote from Pope Francis: “A little mercy makes the world less cold and more just.”
