One has deliberated for a long time, covered every option, thought about every detail in taking anothers life. Premeditated mercy is the parallel opposite of premeditated murder.

It implies a deliberate, thoughtful and willful act to give life: to forgive, to be reconciled, to live at peace with others, even those who have betrayed us, forsaken us, abandoned us, threatened us. In Premeditated Mercy Father Joe Nassal outlines a comprehensive and transformative spirituality of reconciliation. He offers a recipe for preparing a meal of mercy in the pattern of the Gospels.

Jesus challenge is clear enough: We are to reconcile with one another before bringing our gifts to the altar, for that table reflects Gods desire that we live in a holy communion with all people. Premeditated mercy suggests that in our silent prayer before the altar we ponder the breach in relationship and plot a strategy that will lead to reconciliation.Includes:1.

How to find common ground amidst the variety of values and wounds we bring to the table5. How we can make sacred connections within ourselves and in our relationships6. Helps us see our shadows on Mercy Street7. Helps us learn prayer from the crawl space8. Helps us find our footing in the shadow of the crossEmploying engaging stories from a variety of faith traditions, from real life as well as original tales, this poetic manual for becoming a minister of reconciliation brings a radically challenging spiritual work within the reach of each of us.
