Year of Mercy Parish Mission

Rich in Mercy: Parish MissionOn March 13, Pope Francis presided over a penance service in St. Peter’s Basilica, during which he announced an extraordinary Jubilee dedicated to Divine Mercy.

“Dear brothers and sisters, I have often thought about how the Church might make clear its mission of being a witness to mercy. It is journey that begins with a spiritual conversion. For this reason, I have decided to call an extraordinary Jubilee that is to have the mercy of God at its center. It shall be a Holy Year of Mercy. We want to live this Year in the light of the Lord’s words: “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. (cf. Lk 6:36)”

This Holy Year will begin on this coming Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception and will end on November 20, 2016, the Sunday dedicated to Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe – and living face of the Father’s mercy. I entrust the organization of this Jubilee to the Pontifical Council for Promotion of the New Evangelization, that [the dicastery] might animate it as a new stage in the journey of the Church on its mission to bring to every person the Gospel of mercy.

I am convinced that the whole Church will find in this Jubilee the joy needed to rediscover and make fruitful the mercy of God, with which all of us are called to give consolation to every man and woman of our time. From this moment, we entrust this Holy Year to the Mother of Mercy, that she might turn her gaze upon us and watch over our journey.”

In anticipation of this Holy Year I will be offering a specially designed Parish Mission, which I have titled “Rich in Mercy” (Eph. 2:4). This Parish Mission will seek to inspire and equip parishes to fulfill the Holy Father’s expressed wish, “that the whole Church will find in this Jubilee the joy needed to rediscover and make fruitful the mercy of God.”

Parish Missions have been a wonderful part of our Catholic tradition and heritage for centuries. Traditionally celebrated during the penitential seasons of Advent and Lent, the Parish Mission seeks to provide the faithful with an opportunity for spiritual renewal and rededication. During these Missions the Good News (kerygma) of Jesus Christ is proclaimed and the faithful are called to experience God’s mercy through repentance and reconciliation. They are invited to deepen their relationship with the Lord and to live out their baptismal vocation in the world with joy and holy boldness. I have had the great privilege of preaching many parish missions over my lengthy ministerial career and am thoroughly convinced of their great spiritual benefits.

Misión Parroquial: Año Santo de Misericordia

Rico en Misericordia: Misión ParroquialEl 13 de marzo, el Papa Francisco presidió un servicio de penitencia en la Basílica de San Pedro, durante la cual se anunció un Jubileo extraordinario dedicado a la Divina Misericordia.

“Queridos hermanos y hermanas, he pensado con frecuencia de qué forma la Iglesia puede hacer más evidente su misión de ser testigo de la misericordia. Es un camino que inicia con una conversión espiritual; y tenemos que recorrer este camino. Por eso he decidido convocar un Jubileo extraordinario que tenga en el centro la misericordia de Dios. Será un Año santo de la misericordia. Lo queremos vivir a la luz de la Palabra del Señor: ‘Sed misericordiosos como el Padre’ (cf. Lc 6, 36). Esto especialmente para los confesores: ¡mucha misericordia!

Este Año santo iniciará con la próxima solemnidad de la Inmaculada Concepción y se concluirá el 20 de noviembre de 2016, domingo de Nuestro Señor Jesucristo Rey del universo y rostro vivo de la misericordia del Padre. Encomiendo la organización de este Jubileo al Consejo pontificio para la promoción de la nueva evangelización, para que pueda animarlo como una nueva etapa del camino de la Iglesia en su misión de llevar a cada persona el Evangelio de la misericordia.

Estoy convencido de que toda la Iglesia, que tiene una gran necesidad de recibir misericordia, porque somos pecadores, podrá encontrar en este Jubileo la alegría para redescubrir y hacer fecunda la misericordia de Dios, con la cual todos estamos llamados a dar consuelo a cada hombre y a cada mujer de nuestro tiempo. No olvidemos que Dios perdona todo, y Dios perdona siempre. No nos cansemos de pedir perdón. Encomendemos desde ahora este Año a la Madre de la misericordia, para que dirija su mirada sobre nosotros y vele sobre nuestro camino: nuestro camino penitencial, nuestro camino con el corazón abierto, durante un año, para recibir la indulgencia de Dios, para recibir la misericordia de Dios.”

En previsión de este Año Santo ofreceré una Misión Parroquial especialmente diseñada para este Jubileo, la cual he titulado “Rico en misericordia” (Ef. 2:4). Esta Misión Parroquial buscará inspirar y equipar a las parroquias para realizar el deseo expresado por el Santo Padre, “que toda la Iglesia…podrá encontrar en este Jubileo la alegría para redescubrir y hacer fecunda la misericordia de Dios.”

La Misiones Parroquiales han sido parte de nuestra tradición y patrimonio Católico por muchos siglos. Tradicionalmente celebradas durante las temporadas litúrgicas de Adviento y Cuaresma, las Misiones Parroquiales buscan proporcionar a los fieles con oportunidades para la renovación y rededicación espiritual. Durante estas misiones el kerygma de Jesucristo se proclama y los fieles están llamados a experimentar la misericordia de Dios a través del arrepentimiento y la reconciliación sacramental. Se les invita a profundizar en su relación con el Señor y vivir su vocación bautismal en el mundo con alegría y santo valor. He tenido el gran privilegio de predicar muchas misiones parroquiales durante mi larga carrera ministerial y estoy completamente convencido de sus grandes beneficios espirituales.

As a gift to humanity, which sometimes seems bewildered and overwhelmed by the power of evil, selfishness, and fear, the Risen Lord offers His love that pardons, reconciles, and reopens hearts to love. It is a love that converts hearts and gives peace. How much the world needs to understand and accept Divine Mercy!”

- Pope St. John Paul II
