This retreat Weekend led by Jim Murphy was such a blessing. Many of those present would have remembered Jim as a gifted teacher and a man of God who speaks God’s word from his heart.
He is also a great story-teller. Over the two days Jim brought each to a new understanding of the meaning of Mercy as he led the gathering to reflect and to make changes in one’s way of living as the Pope calls us to do. As we know Pope Francis pronounced this year to be an extraordinary year of mercy with the words, "Jesus Christ is the face of the Father’s Mercy." Jim recalled his father, who was a sea captain, telling him, "Don’t ever ask another to do what you yourself are not prepared to do."
