The Jubilee of Mercy is a special time for the Church in which the faithful are to become more merciful in our own lives and bring God’s mercy to others. When we show mercy to others, we are serving as witnesses of the mercy that God constantly extends to all of us. This is why the motto for the Jubilee of Mercy is Merciful like the Father.
During the jubilee year, we are to more effectively live mercy, to recognize the many signs of God’s mercy and to give witness to it as a reflection of the Father’s mercy. Through the celebration of the sacraments, in particular the Sacrament of Reconciliation, prayers, practicing or carrying out the corporal and spiritual works of mercy and making a pilgrimage, we are able to change our hearts and our lives so we can live God’s mercy in everything we say and do.
