On December 8, 2015, Pope Francis opened the doors on the Jubliee Year of Mercy. This year, Pope Francis calls all Catholics to be profound witnesses to mercy and to "find the joy rediscovering and rendering fruitful God's mercy, with which we are all called to give comfort to every man and every woman of our time."
The Franciscan Action Network is proud to compile some resources for use during the Year of Mercy.
Be sure to visit the Vatican's offical Year of Mercy Website here.
There are some basic FAQ's answered and a sign up for more information at Year of Mercy.org.
The Franciscans for Justice in California have several resources on their website, including some handouts for use in promoting a way of looking at the reality of our world as well as finding calls to action.
If you have any more resources you'd like to see listed here, send them along with a note to our Communications Coordinator, Janine Walsh at email@example.com.
