Reflection: Embracing Suffering in Mercy

God’s mercy is shown through the ministry and service we offer to others, and in that ministry and service God’s love reigns, says Stephanie Garza. In a reflection on the power of corporal works of mercy, Garza, a lay Catholic student of spiritual care pursuing the M. Div. degree at Harvard Divinity School, recounts the challenges of working across ethnic divides, living into her authority as a minister and embracing both her tears and the tears of those she cares for in the face of helplessness and hopefulness. Read Garza’s reflection, along with reflections of other young clergy, on the Day to Day page of the African American Lectionary project, an online resource for the African American church, or access the PDF of "Corporal works of Mercy."
