Convicted By Mercy

Wednesday, July 22, 2020 @ 3PM

Can a man turn his life around, from an addict in the streets – and jail – to a living saint? By God’s grace he can! That’s the story of the late Frank Simmonds, which his widow, poet Rita A. Simmonds tells in Convicted by Mercy: The Journey of Frank Simmonds from the Streets to Sanctity. This is exactly the kind of witness we need to encounter more of for encouragement in hope and perseverance in faith, hope, and love.
Rita Simmonds is also author of the new He Called: Selected Poems, published by Magnificat.  She will join frequent Sheen Center contributor Kathryn Jean Lopez, senior fellow and director of the Center of Religion, Culture, and Civil Society at the National Review Institute and editor-at-large of National Review magazine in conversation about mercy, faith, anxiety, conversion, addiction, racism, humanity, and more.
This is another installment in a continuing Sheen Center partnership with the National Review Institute.
