Bulletin insert for the Year of Mercy

The Jubilee Year of Mercy is December 8, 2015 to November 20, 2016.  The US Conference of Catholic Bishops has prepared a two-page handout that offers a brief reflection on the Year, as well as ideas for prayer and action. It makes an excellent insert for your church bulletin. You can read it here.

Among the topics it addresses:
 - Jesus is the “face” of the Father’s mercy
 - Mercy is “the beating heart of the Gospel”
 - Mercy “demands justice”
 - Ideas for Living Mercy during the Jubilee Year.
