The mercy of God in the Old Testament

Fr AdrianSince the early centuries of Christianity God has sometimes been understood as cruel and vindictive. This study day explores the presence of God’s mercy in the Old Testament, revealing that God is forgiving and compassionate, and a model for the mercy we must show to others. Fr Adrian Graffy will lead the group at Gidea Park on Saturday 8th October, from 11am to 3pm.

Parish priest at Gidea Park, Essex, he is also Chair of the National Scripture Group at the Bishops’ Conference, and in 2014 was appointed by Pope Francis as a member of the Pontifical Biblical Commission.
