Embrace mercy every day, Boston cardinal tells WYD audience

Jesus did not stop talking about mercy even though he was nearly thrown from a cliff after his first public talk in a Nazareth synagogue, and the rest of his life can serve as an example for people of faith to follow, Boston Cardinal Sean O'Malley told an energized World Youth Day audience.

Emphasizing the World Youth Day theme focused on mercy and the Year of Mercy declared by Pope Francis, O'Malley called on the young people in Tauron Arena Wednesday to bring God's mercy to life as Jesus did.
