Divine Mercy Conference 2014

Some things that stood out to me from the Divine Mercy Medicine, Bioethics, and Spirituality Conference May 7th and 8th in Worcester, Ma:

"True compassion leads to sharing another's pain; it does not kill the person whose suffering we cannot bear."  St. John Paul II

"God is good to me, today."  Maria Romagnano

"Conscience doesn't determine moral truth, rather it recognizes it." Fr. Mark

"Real mercy costs."  Sr. Nazareta

"Human life is inviolable."  Fr. Mark

"I demand from you deeds of Mercy."  St. Faustina's Diary

"Here comes Jesus in that most annoying costume." St Teresa of Calcutta, about a grumpy old man approaching her, before reaching out to him in love

"Miracles happen, despite what we do."  Dr. Bateman
