A Holy Year of Mercy

Pope Francis announced a jubilee year, a very special event in the Catholic Church, called the Holy Year of Mercy. A jubilee year is called by the church to receive a blessing and pardon from God; this jubilee year begins on December 8, 2015 and will close on November 20, 2016, the feast of Christ the King. The Holy Year of Mercy celebrates being a witness of mercy and invites us all to follow the example of God as merciful, forgiving
and loving followers. 

What is Mercy? Mercy is acts of love by which we care for the bodily and spiritual needs of others. Being merciful frequently includes forgiveness of others, just as God the Father demonstrates forgiveness of our sins through love. Please put the begin date on your calendar now. You will be hearing more about this as the time approaches. Perhaps you might have some ideas on how to celebrate this special year!
