How much I desire that the year to come will be steeped in mercy, so that we can go out to every man and woman, bringing the goodness and tenderness of God! May the balm of mercy reach everyone, both believers and those far away, as a sign that the Kingdom of God is already present in our midst!
Please use resources on your right side to understand what the Jubilee Year of Mercy is, how you can participate, and how you can live it our more fully as an agent of God’s mercy for others.
