blessing of mercy cvrIf you've enjoyed the gospel reflections of one of Australia's leading biblical scholars, Mercy Sister Veronica Lawson, featured on the CRA website every week, you are invited to the launch of her book, "The Blessing of Mercy".

Subtitled "Bible Perspectives and Ecological Challenges," the book will be launched by Sr Berenice Kerr and Sr Elaine Wainwright at 5.00pm on Friday 9 October The Mercy Gathering Room, 151 Victoria Street, Ballarat East.

Morning Star Publications describes the book as a combination of "deep scholarship and insight into the biblical text with an enthusiasm to uncover the richness of the ‘mercy texts’ that abound in the books of Old and New Testaments."

"The Blessing of Mercy is also an ecological exploration of mercy in the Bible, connecting intentionally with Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si and his proclamation of an Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy. Throughout, we are invited to re-read the biblical texts in light of the Pope’s invitation to listen to the cry of the Earth and the Earth’s poor. Above all, we are compelled by mercy to embrace the Earth as God’s creation and our common home."
