Abstract: Mercy has a special place and meaning in the Christian doctrine. It is connected with God’s almightiness. In view of that mercy is not a display of weakness or powerlessness, but a demonstration of God’s active and creative love. God is almighty, he does as He pleases, according to the truth and justice, rules over everything according to His own will and nothing is to difficult for Him. However, the biggest display of this almightiness is forgiveness which touches the depths of sinner’s heart. That is why God’s almightiness does not limit human dignity nor freedom in any way, but protects human life and constitutes a foundation for man’s rise from sin through gift of grace. It defines proper Christian spirituality: personal experience of mercy, forgiveness of sins and forgiveness towards men, acceptance of the gift of indulgences and jubilee years. Performing works of mercy in imitation of God is as well of big importance.
