Personal reflections upon reading this text:

This is a brilliant little gem – a series of interviews with Pope Francis about the mercy of God, in accordance with Catholic theology. It is a fantastic read. I think Pope Francis does a wonderful job linking the present and the future to deeply traditional, mystical, loving understandings of the nature of God and how to apply that in a very real way in our lives.
