David Mills on Hostility to Mercy

David Mills on Hostility to Mercy May 31, 2016

If the life of Jesus is any indication, hostility to mercy has always been the most scandalous aspect of the Church’s teaching.  Forget all the stuff you hear about the Pelvic Issues being the big problem.  The real problem is that Jesus welcomes the Wrong Sort and his disciples and disciple wannabes are very disappointed in him for that.  David Mills talks about this.

None of us are immune to this.  I have lots of suggestions for our Lord on which riff raff need to be weeded out of his company and so do you.  But Jesus keeps eating with tax collectors, sinners–and Pharisees.  Very distressing.
