The Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy commenced last 8 December 2015. To partake in this celebration, TDY brings you a week on mercy, beginning today with Pope Francis's jubilee prayer.
To weep is to show true compassion, to sympathize with the plight of the less fortunate, to devote ourselves not just financially but also emotionally and whole-heartedly. To act on this is to show true mercy. This is the central message behind the theme of the 2015 State and Pastoral Visit to the Philippines of His Holiness Pope Francis, "Mercy and Compassion", and perhaps his entire papacy itself.
