A Year of Mercy


Pope Francis has proclaimed an Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy to be observed from the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, December 8, 2015 thru the Solemnity of Christ the King, November 20, 2016. In his Papal Bull, Francis states that throughout this year the Christian people reflect on the corporal and spiritual works of mercy and that we ask God "to pour out his mercy upon us like the morning dew, so that everyone may work together to build a brighter future." (§ 5).

We hope that you find the resources on this page helpful in your reflection and prayer.
Throughout the Jubilee Year we will continue to update this page with new resources. Check back often!
