On the Year of Mercy, Obstinate Unrepentant Sinners, and Pure Evil.

In this Year of Mercy, are we to be merciful even to the evil barbarian hoard laying siege outside the city walls?

Today, I attended the Dayton Ohio Region 12 Catholic Men's Retreat, with the theme, "Merciful Father". It was an excellent retreat, soul stirring and thought provoking, by four very good speakers. Two Priests, a Seminarian and a Theologian.
