"And whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, 
So that your Father also who is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses." 
[Mark 11:25]

Pope Francis has announced a special Jubilee, or Holy Year beginning on the 8th of December.  A Holy Year normally takes place every 25 years, the last one being the Great Jubilee of the Year 2000.  Now and again, such as in 1933 and 1983, the Pope can call an extraordinary Holy Year.  The theme of the Holy Year is Mercy.  Pope Francis often speaks of mercy.  He has said "the Church must be a place of mercy freely given, where everyone can feel welcomed, loved, forgiven and encouraged to live the good life of the Gospel."  Our prayer for the coming Holy Year and this Divine Mercy Sunday is that God will give us all the grace to show mercy and receive mercy
