Simple Mercies: How the Works of Mercy Bring Peace and Fulfillment  by Lara Patangan

Written with humor and insight, Simple Mercies is for anyone who has every questioned their contribution to the world or struggled with finding God’s purpose for them. Every day in countless ways, the world communicates that we need to do more to measure up or even just keep up. Too many of us feel like we don’t make a difference or that our service is too mundane to matter. Simple Mercies encourages readers to realize that their acts of kindness make a difference in exponential ways and can surprisingly be a source of peace in their own lives. (Our Sunday Visitor)
