 Jubilee Year of Mercy

The Holy Father, Pope Francis I, has declared a Jubilee Year of Mercy which will begin on December 8 of 2015 and end on the Solemnity of Christ the King in 2016. The theme for the will be "Merciful Like the Father". This is an opportunity for all of us to be moved by the Father's mercy and allow the extraordinary grace to move us to mercy. Where are we invited in our lives to show mercy to others, to be people of forgiveness and compassion? We are called to act justly and walk with our God in mercy.
