On December 8th 2015, Pope Francis initiated a Jubilee Year of Mercy. This special year concludes on 20 November 2016.
To mark this, Missio, the Pope’s official charity for overseas mission, and its children’s branch Mission Together, have produced Primary and Secondary versions of the assembly Our Mission; To Be Merciful. These assemblies focus on the key themes of the Jubilee, help explain mercy and mission, and emphasize the ongoing call to act mercifully. Our Mission; To Be Merciful can be downloaded free from our respective websites: www.missio.org.uk and www.missiontogether.org.uk
As the refugee crisis continues, CAFOD’s Advent calendar this year has the theme ‘welcome the stranger’ – one of the corporal acts of mercy, and includes scripture and daily actions.
This is a brilliant skit about how God changes us and about how we try to resist God and keep control of things too often.
It’s a really beautiful sketch.
