Mercy, Mercy Hallelujah!

''Protagonists of Change''

Mercy! What is there to say about mercy? We all need it! And God gives it in abundance! We just need to accept it! In this episode of Protagonists of Change, we talk about mercy in our lives.

First, Darnell shares a story from college where, despite being the cause of his own problems, he is shown radical mercy and forgiveness.

Then Nicole Labadie, Director of Campus Ministry at UST Houston, speaks to an actual Pope Francis appointed Missionary of Mercy, Fr. Jim Sichko, author of “60 Minutes for Jesus.” They talk about his work as a Missionary of Mercy, travel, ministry, grace and what it means to offer mercy.

Finally, in “Who’s That Saint?” Fr. Jim does something a little different. You know at the end of the Litany of Saints in Mass when the priest says “All you holy men and women of God”? Yeah that’s who he is talking about!

Learn more about Fr. Jim Sichko.
