On Wednesday 21st September we visited the new ‘Door of Mercy’ at St Dominic’s Priory and celebrated Mass to welcome our Rosary community to the beginning of the new school year. Since then we have been taking part in a range of activities to mark the Jubilee year of Mercy.
Pope Francis has proclaimed 2016 as an Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy. The year began on 8 December 2015, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, and will conclude on 20 November 2016, the Feast of Christ the King. Pope Francis wants this to be the year when we remember that our God is a God of mercy, a God of love and compassion, a God who forgives all and always forgives. God’s mercy is for everyone; no one is excluded.
Pope Francis asks us to be the face of God’s mercy and we will be thinking about what that means for each one of us as a member of God’s family.
What have you been doing for the Year of Mercy and how you can be God’s face of Mercy?
