God's Mercy, 3rd post

I got inspired by this link so much. It goes into detail about the amazing phrase bismillah ir-rahman ir-raheem. Continuing on from my other two posts (first one, and second one) about rahman and raheem I want to share this: 
Such repetition is a joyful celebration of this Divine attribute, much the same as saying "The One who is the Supreme Loving-Kindness, oh such Loving-Kindness" 
from  this link.

To summarize the three posts:

1) rahman shows us that God's mercy is inseparable from Himself and that He is the source of the mercy, as well as describing the intensity of the mercy God has for us.
2) rahim is about the effect of this mercy, the action of it being given as well as the continuity of it
3) if we combine the two words together, we amplify the meaning and feeling of grace and mercy contained and poured onto us continually.
