What is the antecedents ... ?
I have questions about following sentence, from Oliver Twist(Oxford Bookworms series). Thank you in advance.
1. Is "THAT" a relative pronouns? If so, what is the antecedents?
2. Would you explain the sentence in easy English? (Can I breakdown the sentence?)
The hardships that they had once suffered had left no bitterness in their gentle souls, and all their lives they showed the mercy and kindness to others THAT God himself shows to all things that breathe.
