gnus Dei by Francisco de Zurbarán

Mercy is love with real depth.
It is a love that is able to bear the great tension between
the holiness of God and sin.
It is not rigid and unforgiving,
but neither does it bend and change with the wind.
Mercy is love rooted in Truth and enlarged beyond all bounds by suffering.
Mercy is love crucified.

Divine Mercy Sunday, 2015
