“Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful” (cf. Lk 6:36). On March 13, 2015, Pope Francis declared that an Extraordinary Year of Mercy would be celebrated throughout the world. It will begin on December 8, 2015, Feast of the Immaculate Conception, and conclude on November 26, 2016, Feast of Christ the King.
All of us need God’s mercy! Join Catholics throughout the world and encounter the love and mercy of God through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
