Mercy, Merton and Pope Francis will be focus of retreat and presentation

Christopher Pramuk, who teaches theology and spirituality at Xavier University in Cincinnati, will speak about mercy at two events in late February. “In Everything Mercy: Thomas Merton & Pope Francis on the Merciful Heart of God,” is the subject of both programs.
