 Top Quotes by Pope Francis on Mercy


1. Our Judgements Need Mercy

“Look in the mirror before judging others.”
Pope Francis, Homily, 20th June 2016

2. A Merciful Heart Sees Opportunities Of Compassion

“Mercy always has a youthful face! Because a merciful heart is motivated to move beyond its comfort zone. A merciful heart can go out and meet others ready to embrace everyone. A merciful heart is able to be a place of refuge for those who are without a home or have lost their home; it is able to build a home and a family for those forced to emigrate; it knows the meaning of tenderness and compassion. A merciful heart can share its bread with the hungry and welcome refugees and migrants. To say the word “mercy is to speak of opportunity, future, commitment, trust, openness, hospitality, compassion and dreams.”
Pope Francis, World Youth Day, Poland,  28th July 2016

3. The Merciful Lord Calls Us Despite Our Sins

“Father, but I have my limits, I am a sinner, what can I do?  When the Lord calls us, he doesn’t worry about what we are, what we have been, or what we have done or not done.  Quite the opposite.  When he calls us, he is thinking about everything we have to give, all the love we are capable of spreading.  His bets are on the future, on tomorrow.  Jesus is pointing you to the future, and never to the museum.”
Pope Francis, World Youth Day, Poland, 30th July 2016

4. When We Fall, Jesus Always Extends His Merciful Hand

“Mountaineers, as they climb mountains, sing a very beautiful song whose words go like this: “in the art of climbing, it is not important that you do not fall down, but that you do not stay down . If you are weak, if you fall, look up a little for there is Jesus’ hand extended to you as he says: “Rise up, come with me . “And what if I fall again? Rise again. “And what if I fall yet again? Rise yet again.
Pope Francis, World Youth Day, Poland, 28th July 2016


Pope Francis' Quotes On Mercy

5. The Lord Loves Us Just As We Are

The starting point of the Christian life is not our worthiness; in fact, the Lord was able to accomplish little with those who thought they were good and decent. Whenever we consider ourselves smarter or better than others, that is the beginning of the end. The Lord does not work miracles with those who consider themselves righteous, but with those who know themselves needy. He is not attracted by our goodness; that is not why He loves us. He loves us just as we are; He is looking for people who are not self-sufficient, but ready to open their hearts to Him.”
Pope Francis, Homily, 29th June 2019

6. A Prayer For Mercy

“Lord, launch us on the adventure of mercy! Launch us on the adventure of building bridges and tearing down walls.
Launch us on the adventure of helping the poor, those who feel lonely and abandoned, or no longer find meaning in their lives. Here we are, Lord! Send us to share your merciful love.”
