  • EXTRAORDINARY JUBILEE OF MERCY

    December 8, 2015–November 20, 2016 An Excerpt from Misericordiae Vultus Bull of Indiction of The Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy Francis, Bishop of Rome, Servant of The Servants of God To All Who Read This Letter Grace, Mercy, and Peace 1.

Father's Corner

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, On this Sixth Sunday of Easter the first reading is from the Acts of the Apostles.

The Gentile Christians wondered why this was necessary. The debate continued until St. Peter as the first leader … Continue reading
