Forgiveness and Mercy - DVD
Forgiveness and Mercy -Father’s teaching on forgiveness in 2016 at a Marian Conference in Toronto.
Forgiveness is the key to healing. Jesus is all about the forgiveness of sin. Darkness came at Him, but only love and forgiveness and mercy came out from Him. Forgiveness is the reality of love. Mercy is forgiveness that’s not deserved. Forgiveness has been given to us as a gift. What you have received as a gift; give it as a gift.
