Fr. Schall on Mercy

Fr. Schall on Mercy
"Mercy is a response to the repentant. It does not change the unrepentant. It often hardens them. Technically, mercy extends to sin of whatever kind or species. But mercy does not forgive. God in His mercy forgives. Mercy is contingent on the sinner’s acknowledgement that he is responsible for something objectively wrong in his acts or thoughts." (Fr. James V. Schall S. J.)

Robert P. George: The Dishonorable Sheriff

(Professor Robert P. George)

(Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik)

When a so-called law enforcement officer waxes political, especially when espousing a partisan ideological viewpoint (totally absent of facts), he needs to be called on it. No one could do that better than Robert P. George, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University, and he did it last night on The Corner on National Review Online.
