Pope Francis' Jubilee Year of MercyPope Francis' Jubilee Year of Mercy

“Jesus Christ is the face of the Father’s Mercy.” 
--Pope Francis


Dear People of God’s Endless Mercy,

Pope Francis envisions a year in which we will become more merciful in our lives and share God’s mercy with others. He also encourages us to contemplate this wondrous mystery of mercy freely given to us and to celebrate our faith together. 

In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, let us consider how we are called to bring consolation to the poor, liberty to those bound by new forms of slavery in our society, spiritual sight to those who have lost touch with God, and human dignity to those most in need.

Please take advantage of Our Sunday Visitor’s 365 Days to Mercy App, free in the iTunes and Google Play app stores. This app is designed to accompany and encourage you on a spiritual journey during the Jubilee Year of Mercy proclaimed by Pope Francis.

In the Lord’s Joy and Mercy,
Fr. Hernan
