The Holy Father has called an Extraordinary Jubilee which has at its centre the mercy of God. It will be a Holy Year of Mercy. “Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful” (cf. Lk 6:36). This Holy Year will commence on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception and will conclude on Sunday, 20 November 2016, the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe and living face of the Father's mercy.
