Year of Mercy
This year’s theme is Our Schools as Islands of Mercy. Pope Francis describes the mercy of God as his loving concern for each of us. “He desires our well-being and he wants to see us happy full of joy, and peaceful. This is the path which the merciful love of Christians must also travel. As the Father loves, so do his children. Just as he is merciful, so we are called to be merciful to each other. (MV 9)” The letter encourages us to make our schools islands of mercy in which we encounter and share the mercy of our Lord.
