But what exactly is missionary discipleship and what does it have to do with you and me?

Becoming A Parish of Mercy
Mercy doesn't always wait for an apology. Mercy actively pursues. Like the merciful father who sees his son a long way off and goes out to embrace him, the Church is called to go out and accompany people, bringing the kingdom of God to all.
In this practical and enlightening book, you will uncover key actions and attitudes of accompaniment that can bring Pope Francis' vision of a more merciful Church to life in your parish. You'll see how the New Evangelization can help you thrive as an oasis of God's mercy, cultivating relationships based on trust, respect, and love.
The stories, experiences, and discussion questions here can build dialog among clergy, staff, volunteers, and even those who are disengaged from the Church. Most important, this encouraging book can help all of us respond joyfully to our baptismal call to be icons of God's merciful love, shining for the whole world.
