Year of Mercy

 BREAD AND CIRCUSES DURING THE YEAR OF MERCY? NO, GRAZIE!
The Holy Year is the pope's attempt to help the world -- but even more so the church -- find the solution to this impossible situation.

 IF THE CHURCH FORGETS MERCY
Any efforts at renewal of the Catholic church that do not place God's mercy at the center of their work are "useless" and make Catholics "slaves" to the church's institutions.


 POPE FRANCIS; A NOT-SO-CLEAR, BUT VERY PRESENT DANGER
The pope is disseminating a message that could change our lives in ways far more radical and destabilizing than anything unleashed by terrorists or militants.

 THE JUBILEE OF MERCY
The yearlong Jubilee of Mercy is officially underway and Pope Francis is hoping it will make the Church less judgmental, more forgiving, and even more open to the world.

 THE POPE'S HOLY NEW YEAR
The Year of Our Lord, 2016, is off to a sluggish start at the Vatican - according to certain reports. The reason? Pope Francis is no longer drawing the massive crowds that were so evident in the first two years of his pontificate.

 THE TEN COMMANDMENTS OF MERCY
It is not enough for us to be merciful in our own lives. Mercy is marginalized in a society that doesn't sufficiently attend to those who are weak or needy, just as it is marginalized in a church that is judgmental.

 WHAT IS MERCY?
As the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy kicks off, Catholic theologians weigh in on mercy, and its surprising connection to justice.

 WHY A JUBILEE YEAR OF MERCY?
Simply because the Church, in this time of great historical change, is called to offer more evident signs of God's presence and closeness.
