During the warmer months here in the Chicago area, my mother and I visit the grave sites of our departed loved ones at Mount Carmel––a predominantly Italian-American Catholic cemetery located in suburban Hillside. Our family monuments are near the grave of the infamous mob boss Al Capone. There is always a steady stream of visitors at the burial ground of the notorious man who was known as “Scarface.” I sometimes wondered if God was sending a message to these graveside gawkers. So during one visit, I walked over to Mr. Capone’s grave and read the epitaph on his headstone: “MY JESUS, MERCY.” Then I realized that there was indeed a divine message––and it was meant for me, too.
