This New Year is a special one for us because Pope Francis has designated it as a Jubilee Year of Mercy. We hope that it will be a year of healing and forgiveness for all of us, that we will experience the merciful touch of our God and that we will grow in love of God and of each other. And when we experience God's mercy may we be merciful and kind to all whom we meet.
I think that this year will have a big effect on all of us and on our world.
May it also be a happy and healthy year for all.
