The "exodus that he was going to accomplish in Jerusalem" (Luke 9:31). God is merciful because, rather than "strike the land," he sent his only begotten Son to liberate us from sin and death.

My Gifts From God? JOURNEY OF A CATHOLIC NERD WRITER - February 6, 2016 ... Then the host of the program started talking. "Wait... I know that voice..." I said to myself. "Is that Patrick Madrid?" I asked the driver. Surprised by my question, he said it was. That sprung a conversation that made me think a lot about my faith and my role in the Church.
