A tremendous way of serving Christ’
A Guide for Parish Ministry, Family, and Friends
Brian Thatcher, MD and Kathleen M. Wabick
- The heart of the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the message of God’s merciful love. As Christians we are called to bring this message to everyone. For parish communitites, to offer such a hope-filled message to the sick and dying is a tremendous way of serving Christ in our neighbor and carrying out a great work of mercy. This little book reveals a simple, easy-to-follow, and much needed method for bringing the mercy of God to those who are often overlooked. I am certain that those who carry out this work of mercy will be listed as apostles of mercy in the registry of heaven!
