  • “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.” Luke 6:36

    This document, issued by Pope Francis, formally announces the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, which is to run from 8 December 2015 to 20 November 2016.

    In it, Pope Francis explains significant aspects of the Jubilee: the motto, ‘Merciful like the Father’, the meaning of pilgrimage, and above all the need for forgiveness. Emphasising the importance of mercy, he urges people to reach out and open their hearts to those living on the outermost fringes of society.

    Finally, he implores that the Church never tire of extending mercy and be ever patient in offering compassion and comfort.

  • Pope Francis


    Pope Francis was born Jorge Mario Bergoglio on 17 December 1936 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. As a young man, he worked briefly as a chemical technician and nightclub bouncer before entering the Jesuits. He was ordained a priest in 1969, and from 1973 to 1979, was Argentina’s Provincial Superior of the Society of Jesus. He became the Archbishop of Buenos Aires in 1998, and was appointed a Cardinal in 2001.


    Following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI on 28 February 2013, Bergoglio was named his successor on 13 March. He chose the name Francis in honor of Saint Francis of Assisi. He is the first Jesuit Pope, the first Pope from the Americas, the first Pope from the Southern Hemisphere, and the first non-European Pope in over 1200 years.


    Pope Francis has been noted for his humility, his concern for the poor, and his commitment to dialogue as a way to build bridges between people of all backgrounds, beliefs, and faiths.
