Embracing Weakness: The Unlikely Secret to Changing the World explores how a radical acceptance of one's own shadow side can birth a more whole and merciful response to the weaknesses of others. Through examining the Incarnation and Passion of Jesus, as well as her own life experiences as a missionary, adoptive mother, and Catholic Worker activist, the author forms the argument that the greatest potential for social and relational change comes not through a demonstration of power, but through smallness, authenticity, and empathy. If you're ready for a vibrant spiritual life overflowing with mercy -experienced and extended- read Embracing Weakness.
