‘This Year of Mercy is a good occasion to meet again, to embrace and forgive one another and to forget the bad things.’
“In this Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, we have very present that there cannot be a genuine quest for Christian unity without entrusting ourselves fully to the Father’s mercy. Let us ask first of all for forgiveness for the sin of our divisions, which are an open wound in the Body of Christ
‘God’s mercy, which operates in Baptism, is stronger than our divisions.’
‘How lovely is this description of God! Everything is here, because God is great and powerful, but His greatness and power are displayed in loving us, we who are so little, so incapable.’
The particular challenge facing Christians is discovering how to present Jesus Christ to people today. This theme is taken up by Dr. Luis Clavell, professor at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross in Rome.
