Pope Francis has declared this a Jubilee Year of Mercy, “a time of grace, peace, conversion and joy. It is meant for everyone: people of every age, from far and near. There are no walls or distances which can prevent the Father’s mercy from reaching and embracing us.”
He urges young people to fully participate: “This grace-filled moment also concerns you, dear young people. I encourage you to take an active part in this celebration and to realize that each of you is a child of God (cf. 1 Jn 3:1).”
What is God’s mercy? How can we take part in His mercy and embrace it in our own lives?
