POPE FRANCIS Proclaims a Jubilee Year of Mercy
Officially proclaiming the upcoming jubilee year of mercy, December 8,2015 to November 20, 2016, Pope Francis has powerfully called on the entire Catholic Church to refashion itself as a place not of judgement or condemnation but of pardon and merciful love.
“It’s time to return to the basics and to bear the weaknesses and struggles of our brothers and sisters. Mercy is the force that reawakens us to new life and instills in us the courage to look to the future with hope.”
” In short, we are called to show mercy because mercy has first been shown to us. Pardoning offenses become the clearest expression of merciful love, and for us, Christians, it is an imperative from which we cannot excuse ourselves.”
“The mercy of God is his loving concern for each one of us. He feels responsible; that is, he desires our wellbeing and wants to see us happy, full of joy and peaceful.”
Pope Francis will ask some priests to serve as special “Missionaries of Mercy.” He will ask those priests to go around the world to hear confessins and that he will grant them “the authority to pardon event those sins reserved for the Holy See.
