As a parish one of our responses to the Year of Mercy is to reflect on the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy as requested by Pope Francis:
"It is my burning desire that, during this Jubilee, the Christian people may reflect on the corporal and spiritual works of mercy. It will be a way to reawaken our conscience, too often grown dull in the face of poverty. And let us enter more deeply into the heart of the Gospel where the poor have a special experience of Godís mercy. Jesus introduces us to these works of mercy in his preaching so that we can know whether or not we are living as his disciples,"
To do this we will be following the Loving Mercy series developed by Ignatian Resources. For full details please click the Year of Mercy tab or click here.
