Jubilee Year of Mercy

Reflections from Pope Francis for the Year of Mercy
Let us Imitate Jesus
Let us imitate Jesus: He goes to the streets, not planning for the poor or the sick or disabled people that he crosses along the way;but with the first one he encounters, he stops, becoming a presence of care, a sign of the closeness of God who is goodness, providence, and love.
Little by Little
In intimacy with God and in listening to his Word, little by little we put aside our own way of thinking, which is most often dictated by our closures, by our prejudice, and by our ambitions, and we learn instead to ask the Lord: What is your desire? What is your will ? What pleases you ?
Our Real Journey
Even if we are sometimes unfaithful to him, he remains faithful. In his mercy, he never tires of stretching out his hand to lift us up, to encourage us to continue our journey, to come back and tell him of our weakness, so that he can grant us his strength. This is the real journey: to walk with the Lord always, even at moments of weakness, even in our sins. Never to prefer a makeshift path of our own. that kills us.
The Sweetness of Our Lady
We are in need today of the sweetness of Our Lady to understand the things that Jesus asks of us. It is not an easy list to put into practice: love your enemies, do good, give without hoping for anything in return. to him who strikes you offer the other cheek, to him who takes your cloak offer your tunic as well. These are heavy demands. But all of them were lived by Our Lady in her own way.
Jesus’ love is great,Jesus’love is merciful, Jesus’love forgives; but you have to open yourself, and to open oneself means to repent, to accuse oneself of the things that are not good and which we have done. The Lord Jesus gave himself, and he continues to give himself to us, in order to fill us with all of the mercy and grace of the Father.
