Acts of mercy are often terribly ordinary. Rather than leave them to others, why not reflect on the spiritual and practical matters that Pope Francis recommends for the Year of Mercy.

Mark Shea gives examples of people who have performed the works of mercy and advice on how we can share God’s mercy in the twenty first Century.

We are pilgrims, called to pass through the ‘door of mercy’ in this Year of Mercy. In a world where many feel beyond forgiveness, let’s start out to discover what mercy truly is.

The Mission of the CTS


he Catholic Truth Society is a unique Catholic charity publishing non-stop since 1868. The CTS exists to promote knowledge and practice of the Catholic faith among Catholics and non - Catholics, the wider Christian community and general enquirers, by publishing and disseminating relevant, truthful and engaging Catholic publications at affordable prices.

“I think CTS has a massive impact on inspiring, teaching and encouraging ordinary Catholics and also explaining the faith to those who are searching for answers.” John Pridmore, Best Selling Author of ‘From Gangland to Promised Land’

We receive a constant stream of feedback from people who have experienced conversions, returned to the Church or who have been helped to grow deeper in their faith and be better informed as a result of reading CTS booklets. Laudato Si, the New Missal of the Ordinariate are recent additions to CTS publications covering the wide and wonderful breadth of the Catholic Faith.

Membership with the CTS By becoming a Member of the CTS family you become personally involved in the New Evangelisation which is the mission of the CTS, making a reality of Pope Francis’s assertion that ‘All the baptised whatever their position in the Church or their level of instruction in the faith, are agents of evangelisation’ (Evangelii Gaudium)

“I would encourage anyone thinking of supporting CTS to seriously consider becoming a member, thereby making a definite contribution to the educational and evangelistic work and mission of the Church.” Charles Whitehead Become a Member of CTS – the Charity that answers the call to evangelise.
