Father Moloney has released his new book on Mercy!

Summary by Ignatius Press:

Book Summary

In Mercy: What Every Catholic Should Know, Fr. Daniel Moloney covers a broad range of topics regarding mercy that are prevalent for our society today. Beginning from an unexpected perspective in the first half of the book, Fr. Moloney approaches mercy from a political point of view, explaining how mercy is in fact truly and intimately interwoven with politics and power. Through this lens, he touches upon pertinent topics such as legal punishments, the death penalty, and self-defense. He also assesses the clergy scandals, laying out why they occurred, what went wrong in how they were dealt with, and how the Church can improve moving forward for the greater glory of God. He eloquently explains how mercy is not synonymous with leniency, but is an act of responding to a privation, a lack of something which ought to be there. Sometimes the road to this may have to be tough love for the good of all involved.

Fr. Moloney invites the reader to wrestle with the supposed contradiction of God saying that he is merciful, yet killing and punishing his creation. Moloney ultimately resolves this apparent contradiction by highlighting God's identity as the loving Father, explaining how, similar to good earthly fathers, sometimes the most loving route to take in truly loving your children and bringing them to their ultimate good is through the course of tough love. God is always good and loving, and his justice and mercy go hand-in-hand. 

Series Summary

The new What Every Catholic Should Know series is intended for the average faithful Catholic who wants to know more about Catholic faith and culture. The authors in this series take a panoramic approach to the topic of each book aimed at a non-specialist but enthusiastic readership. Forthcoming titles planned for this series include: the Eucharist, salvation, history, art, and philosophy.

Come join us every Friday at 4:30pm EST to pray the rosary with other TCC members! If you have never prayed the rosary, no worries! We have all the prayers for you and images to go along with the mysteries. Especially during this pandemic, pray is one of the biggest ways we can make a difference and improve the lives of the sick, healthcare workers, and others working to end COVID-19.

The Archdiocese of Boston is allowing parishes to reopen for Mass, starting May 23. While the Archdiocese of Boston has decided to reopen churches and allow public Mass soon, current MIT policies prevent us from having Mass on campus until further notice. Students who would like to attend Mass should check with nearby parishes to see how and when they can attend. Check earlier rather than later, because parishes are turning to requiring e-tickets as a way to limit the size of the congregation.
