This summer, we are sharing photos and stories that reveal what mercy looks like. These are images of mercy, given and received by the Notre Dame family of faith. If you would like to share a photo or a short story, we welcome all contributions. Send photos (full-sized, please, and include a caption of less than 100 words) to Josh Noem, editor of FaithND. We will publish new entries here periodically, and we will also share entries on our social media accounts (Facebook and Twitter).
The second installment in our series that shows what mercy looks like enacted by the Notre Dame family, such as this photo from Rich D'Amour '76. "Dad is slowly dying in an Alzheimer's unit. He spends his days with his hands covering his face. He says it feels good. My sister Carolyn recently visited and was able to coax him into lowering one of his hands for a brief moment. The look on her face is pure love. I can't look at this beautiful image without tearing up." See more>
