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.)

Peter Robinson of The Hoover Institution posted a fantastic video, produced by The Fund for American Studies, on Ricochet.com yesterday. Here's what he had to say about it:

In just five minutes, a complete, brilliant and wildly enjoyable overview of capitalism. Watch the thing--and then send the link around to everyone you know. (Especially--need I say?--the high school and college students in your life.)

Really. Put yourself in a marvelous mood for the weekend. Watch.
