The Church’s Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy ran from December 8, 2015, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, to November 20, 2016, the Feast of Christ the King. Fr Gabriel Julien reexamines Mercy in this three-part series.
Because we live in a world that is often marred with violence, impatience, and we sometimes deal with others in an unforgiving and unsympathetic manner, I think it is meaningful to reflect on the theme: Mercy. This series of articles is written to help the faithful to appreciate more fully, the compassion of God. It tries to explore in great detail the true essence of mercy as narrated in the fifth Beatitude according Matthew 5:7, Blessed are the merciful, they shall have mercy shown them.
