At time we are called to gaze even more attentively on mercy so that we may become a more effective sign of the Father's action in our lives."
- Pope Francis
The Parables of Mercy is one of a series of eight books, the official catechetical resource for the jubilee of Mercy created by the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization at the request of Pope Francis.
As Pope Francis says, we are, as a Church, called to "echo the word of God that resounds strong and clear as a message and a sign of pardon, strength, aid, and love." These books are a guiding light for individuals and parishes to answer that call.
Jubilee Year of Mercy: December 2015 November 2016.
