|The joy of a Merciful Life|
(Dancers during the JPII Guadalupe festival)
|Knock out evil and be rewarded with sweets|
The reason I invited others to join me in this was as a response to the negativity and fear that seems to be growing in our country. It greatly hurt me to hear the fear that leads to denying refugees safety, judging Muslims by some terrorist groups and actions, and increasing suspicion of our neighbors. It also bothers me that people seem to put more trust in guns than God. There is another way!!

Therefore I wrote to the Knoxville News Sentinel about my challenge to do thirty days of radical acts of love to demonstrate that Love is more powerful than fear and good will (God's will) more helpful than suspicion and isolation. This message was picked up by the local papers and others who read my facebook page.
|The greatest act of mercy|
In this year of mercy, Pope Francis is inviting all of us to engage in radical acts of love and forgiveness. Doing one small thing a day opens one's eyes to the many possibilities to make a difference. We may discover greater joys and surprises along the way.
