Looking for Meaning in the Year of Mercy (Video)

Zoe Romanowsky - published on 12/08/15

Diocese of Burlington, VT, invites Catholics to participate in the great Jubilee

This Sunday, December 13, Bishop Christopher J. Coyne will open the Holy Door of Mercy at Saint Joseph Co-Cathedral in  Burlington, VT, to begin the Jubilee Year of Mercy.

The Year of Mercy is a worldwide extraordinary jubilee declared by Pope Francis, which will be celebrated through November 2016. It’s an invitation for the Church, and all Christians, to be witnesses of mercy in the world today.

This video produced for the Burlington diocese talks about what mercy is, and what can be in store for each of us if we embrace the graces available in the coming year.
