How Christians can be an Oasis of Mercy: 'Misericordiae Vultus' by Pope Francis

Misericordiae Vultus by Pope Francis
From Paragraph 12: The Church as an Oasis of Mercy

  • The Spouse of Christ must pattern her behaviour after the Son of God who went out to everyone without exception.
  • The Church’s first truth is the love of Christ. The Church makes herself a servant of this love and mediates it to all people: a love that forgives and expresses itself in the gift of oneself.
  • Wherever there are Christians, everyone should find an oasis of mercy.
