Touching God’s Compassion
by National Catholic Broadcasting Council, His Eminence Thomas Cardinal Collins and Most Reverend Gerard Bergie

This book is the result of the 2019 and 2020 National Catholic Missions, which are produced by the National Catholic Broadcasting Council (NCBC). His Eminence Thomas Cardinal Collins and the Most Reverend Gerard Bergie are the Mission leaders of the National Catholic Mission Talks featured in this study guide.

We can experience God’s compassion during different situations in our lives. The Sacraments of Baptism, Reconciliation, and Anointing are means by which the Church is able to bring God’s compassion and healing touch to people in a very real way.

Each chapter includes a transcript of the talk, prayers, reflection material, and discussion questions. This study guide is intended for use by individuals looking for a deeper understanding of the sacraments and their faith, as well as:

• Catholic religion teachers

• RCIA team leaders and members

• Small faith groups

• Parents, grandparents, and godparents

This study guide may be used on its own or in conjunction with the video Mission talks of the National Catholic Mission, available at
