Californian Amanda Berg has just completed her training in Spiritual Direction at the Jesuit Manresa Centre of Spirituality in Dublin. As a Lutheran, she warmly welcomes Pope Francis’s declaration of a Year of Mercy.

She described Mercy as “underserved forgiveness” and says that it is a real gift; something that we’ve “always needed” in our world. She adds that it can also be a transformative experience – those who have received Mercy are inspired to bring that compassion to others – and to realise that our job is to go about the business of bringing that compassion to others. She explains more to Pat Coyle.
