Abstract:

"Only a few years into his papacy, Pope Francis has spoken and written many times on the theme of mercy, going so far as to call it 'the Lord's most powerful message.' Published in partnership with the Vatican, A Year of Mercy celebrates the Jubilee Year of 2016 with a collection of the pope's most moving words on the subject of mercy. These thoughtful teachings bring the pontiff's warm, accessible style to bear on the message of God's love and his infinite capacity for forgiveness if we simply lay our sins before him. Pope Francis addresses not only God's mercy for his people, but also our own duty to be merciful to each other: 'Let us be renewed by God's mercy, let us be loved by Jesus, let us enable the power of his love to transform our lives too; and let us become agents of this mercy, channels through which God can water the earth, protect all creation and make justice and peace flourish.'" -- Page [4] cover.
