Our Holy Father is giving the world an incredible gift! As you may have already read, he has proclaimed December 8th, 2015 as the start of the Jubilee Year of Mercy. I hope that we all take the time to read this most recent Papal Bull in its entirety. Many graces will be available to us during that jubilee year and we should do everything in our power to ensure we don't waste or squander any of them. Let us become apostles of mercy by spreading the word, by putting into practice the corporal and spiritual acts of mercy, by evangelizing not by our words, but by our actions.
