Title: The Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy A reflection


1
The Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy A reflection
2
Jesus of Nazareth, by his words, his actions, and
his entire person reveals the mercy of God.
3
We need constantly to contemplate the mystery of
mercy. It is a wellspring of joy, serenity, and
peace.
4
Mercy is the force that reawakens us to new life
and instils in us the courage to look to the
future with hope.
5
Blessed are the merciful they shall have mercy
shown them. Matthew 57
6
Jesus asks us also to forgive and to give.  To be
instruments of mercy because it was we who first
received mercy from God.
7
The Lord gives justice to the oppressed,
8
gives food to the hungry
9
The Lord sets prisoners free.
10
The Lord gives sight to the blind,
11
lifts up those who are bowed down. Psalm 146
12
Day after day, touched by Gods compassion, we
also can become compassionate to others.
13
Let us enter more deeply into the heart of the
Gospel where the poor have a special experience
of Gods mercy.
14
Let us rediscover these corporal works of mercy
to feed the hungry,
15
Give drink to the thirsty,
16
Clothe the naked,
17
Welcome the stranger,
18
Heal the sick,
19
Visit the imprisoned,
20
And bury the dead.
21
From the heart of the Trinity, from the depths of
the mystery of God, the great river of mercy
wells up and overflows unceasingly. It is a
spring that will never run dry. Pope Francis,
Bull of Indiction 2015
22
Lord Jesus Christ, you have taught us to
be merciful like the heavenly Father, and have
told us that whoever sees you sees him.
23
Send your Spirit and consecrate every
one of us with its anointing, so that the Jubilee
of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord,
24
  • and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may
    bring good news to the poor, proclaim liberty to
    captives and the oppressed, and restore sight to
    the blind. Amen.
