The Year of Mercy
On 11th April 2015 the Holy Father, Pope Francis, proclaimed a Jubilee Year of Mercy to run from 8th December 2015 (Feast of the Immaculate Conception of Our Lady) until 20th November 2016 (Feast of Christ the King). A Jubilee Year is an opportunity for us to change, to start again. In this Year of Mercy we open our hearts to discover afresh the overflowing love and mercy of the Lord in our own lives and to dedicate ourselves to making God’s love and mercy known in the lives of others.
Pope Francis reminds us that mercy has become “living and visible” in Jesus Christ: “we need constantly to contemplate the mystery of mercy. It is a wellspring of joy, serenity, and peace.” May this Jubilee year bring peace to our hearts, our homes and workplaces, and the wider world around us; may humanity, in all its brokenness, experience the healing mercy of Christ.
