Year of Mercy Weekly Challenge

Take time in prayer to contemplate the good qualities of someone who is difficult for you. Do the same for each member of your family. At the dinner table you might pull the name of one family member and have each person say something good about that person. Repeat this daily during this week even if a name is pulled more than once.
