“Blessed are the merciful.” —Matthew 5:7
“Ultimately it is Christ who is beautiful upon the mountain. And it is His merciful promise of “peace in this world,” His good tidings of “eternal life in the world to come” that make us fall at His feet and call His name blessed and give thanks for the restoration of His true and living Church.” —Jeffrey R. Holland
