Year of Mercy
Pope Francis has declared an Extraordinary Holy Year of Mercy that will last until the Feast of Christ the King, 20 November 2016. The motto for this Holy Year is “Merciful like the Father”. There will be many events at the parish, diocesan, national and international level, but if this motto is not engraved on our hearts and lived out in our lives, they will be of no use whatsoever!
It must be truly a year of ‘Merciful like the Father’ for each one of us.
Pope Francis says, “This Year of Mercy is an opportunity to meditate on God’s Mercy for us, and how we can share that mercy with others, through our words and deeds.”
