Book: The Blessing of Mercy by Sr Veronica Lawson RSM

Staff |  31 May 2016

Biblical scholar Sr Veronica Lawson RSM recently released her new book, The Blessing of Mercy – Biblical Perspectives and Ecological Challenges. This work intertwines Pope Francis’ message during the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy and his sobering call for environmental change in his encyclical Laudato Si (On care for our common home).

Through the lens of scripture, Sr Lawson invites the reader to deepen their own understanding of God’s mercy and how they can answer the pope’s call to ecological responsibility and compassion for their neighbour.
