A Reason for the Jubilee

  



Here, then, is the reason for the Jubilee: because this is the time for mercy. It is the favorable time to heal wounds, a time not to be weary of meeting all those who are waiting to see and to touch with their hands the signs of the closeness of God, a time to offer everyone, everyone, the way of forgiveness and reconciliation. May the Mother of God open our eyes, so that we may comprehend the task to which we have been called: and may she obtain for us the grace to experience this Jubilee of Mercy as faithful and fruitful witnesses of Christ.

- Pope Francis, homily at First Vespers on Divine Mercy Sunday
