to go forth

Pope Francis’ Prayer for Jubilee Year of Mercy

This week, Pope Francis released his prayer for the Jubilee Year of Mercy, which is December 8, 2015 through November 20, 2016.

The beautiful prayer is a call “to go forth,” transformed by the Father’s mercy and Jesus’ “loving gaze” as we encounter his “visible face in the world.”  Quoting Luke 4:18, Pope Francis prays for a Church which brings good news to people in poverty, liberty to those who are oppressed, and restoration of sight to those who are blind.
