A couple notes.
First, if your German is not up to speed, Barmherzigkeit is “mercy”.
Second, … later on.
From Ignatius His Conclave:
Said the Cardinal, “Don’t be afraid
Barmherzigheit is my trade,
In amorous dealings
Give way to your feelings;
Morality’s simply man-made.”
Fr. Z kudos.
“Ignatius”, as in the title of that blog, is not an example of modern “verbing”. It’s a kind of genitive: the conclave of Ignatius. “Ignatius His Conclave” is a work by John Donne (+1631) in which he ridicules the Jesuits of his day. In the work John Donne reveals how Ignatius was banished from Hell and sent to the moon where he (Jesuits) would do less harm. No lover of Jesuits, he.
What, I wonder, would Donne have written about the likes of James Martin, 2+2=5, and Thomas Reese?
BUT WAIT! There’s more!
This limerick seems to have been a response a request by Fr. Hunwicke:
There once was a German called Kasper
Whose theology was a disaster.
To divorcees twice wed
He reportedly said
‘I’m the world’s most merciful pastor’.
