In this Jubilee Year of Mercy let us remember that

  • We are called to become more like our loving, merciful God
  • Love and mercy will triumph over hatred and evil
  • We learn to be merciful from our experience of mercy shown to us

So each day let us drench ourselves in God’s mercy, that we may truly become “merciful like our Father.”
