“Practicing Solidarity & Mercy in the Everyday”

Our communities are deeply divided. It feels as if we are losing our ability to listen and dialogue across these divides. The more we emphasize these differences the easier it becomes to dismiss those whose politics, language, culture, or religion different than ours. According to Pope Francis, “We are accustomed to a culture of indifference and we must strive and ask for the grace to create a culture of encounter, of a fruitful encounter, of an encounter that restores to each person his or her own dignity as a child of God, the dignity of a living person.”  A culture of encounter is one of solidarity and mercy. Through the lens of Catholic social teaching, it is time to reflect on the ways every day discipleship can practice mercy and cultivate the virtue of solidarity.
