What is mercy?

Holy Year of Mercy

The Jubilee Year of Mercy began on December 8, 2015 and will close on November 20, 2016, the feast of Christ the King.  Pope Francis announced this jubilee year so that all can receive a blessing and pardon from God. The Holy Year of Mercy celebrates being a witness of mercy and invites us all to follow the example of God as merciful, forgiving and loving followers.     Mercy is acts of love by which we care for the bodily and spiritual needs of others. Being merciful frequently includes forgiveness of others, just as God the Father demonstrates forgiveness of our sins through love.
