Sister Dianne Bergant to host RFC Webinar
The Face of the Mercy of God
Webinar: Tuesday, March 17 | 1:00pm central
In the document Misericordia Vultus (The Face of the Mercy of God), Pope Francis calls us to pattern our lives after the image of Jesus, who is the face of divine mercy. Dr. Bergant will examine some of the biblical background of Pope Francis’ thinking on our call to embody divine mercy.
