Year of Mercy
Who is my neighbour?
Seeing the great need for mercy and healing in the world, Pope Francis has called for the Year of Mercy. This is special period, also known as a Holy Year or
Jubilee Year,for the Catholic Church. It is a time for the Church across the world to take a year to focus on forgiveness and healing in a special way.
The Year of Mercy is an invitation to show love, kindness, and unbounded generosity. Pope Francis is offering us all the opportunity to encounter the incredible
mercy of God. Encountering mercy means encountering God. It can transform our life, our relationships, our work, and our ability to embrace and experience all of life.
Pope Francis has asked us all as individuals and as a Church to be a witness of mercy by reflecting on and practising the spiritual and corporal works of mercy.
Beginning on 8 December 8 2015, the Holy Year of Mercy will focus on studying and reflecting on mercy, receiving mercy, and being merciful towards others.
