Full Text: Jubilee of Mercy Announcement from Pope Francis

(VIDEO ONLY) Dear Brothers and Sisters, I have often thought about how the Church can do more to make clear its mission of being a witness of mercy. It is a path that begins with a spiritual conversion. Therefore, I have decided to convene a special jubilee focused on God's mercy. It will be a Holy Year of Mercy. We want to live in the light of the word of God: "Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful" (Luke 6:36). This holy year shall begin at the forthcoming Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception and will end on November 20, 2016, Sunday of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the universe and living face of the Father's mercy. I am convinced that the whole Church will find in this jubilee joy to rediscover and make fruitful the mercy of God, with which we are all called to comfort every man and woman of our time. We now entrust Mother of Mercy to watch over us and ensure our way. JRB/ATO CTV - -PR Up: FV #Papa
