Bro. René Stockman, Superior General of the Brothers of Charity and president of Fracarita International, wrote a new book on the occasion of the Holy Year of Mercy, entitled ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice’.
Bro. Stockman looks for answers to questions such as ‘What is mercy?’, ‘What does it mean today?’, and ‘How can we live and experience it?’. The 14 works of mercy are discussed, as well as a few icons of mercy. This inspiring book is published by Halewijn and is only available in Dutch for the moment.
