  • "Whether mercy can be attributed to God?", St. Thomas Aquinas, (Summa Theologica, First Part, Question 21, Article 3): I answer that, Mercy is especially to be attributed to God, as seen in its effect, but not as an affection of passion. In proof of which it must be considered that a person is said to be merciful [misericors], as being, so to speak, sorrowful at heart [miserum cor]; being affected with sorrow at the misery of another as though it were his own.
