GOD’S HEART OF ENDLESS mercy shines like light within and around us, draws our pain and darkness to the healing source, and flows like a river of life into our body, our daily life, and to those around us. Some of us experience this mercy at first only as a slight trickle, a thin thread of change. Others of us already feel a vast abundant river of mercy.
—Flora Slosson Wuellner, Forgiveness the Passionate Journey: Nine Steps of Forgiving through Jesus’ Beatitudes (Upper Room Books, 2001)
