Reflection Corner: Advent Moment of Mercy
On December 8, 2015, Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, Pope Francis will open the doors of St. Peter’s Basilica to proclaim the beginning of the Jubilee of Mercy. He is calling all Catholics to reflect on the mercy of God. Pope Francis wants us all to remember that we receive God’s mercy as a gift of grace. We thank God in our own merciful thoughts, words and actions toward others.
Prayer: Lord, as we continue our Advent Journey, help us recognize your merciful love through your grace.
