Originally posted on Facebook: Jubilee Yearof Mercy November 2015 to November 2016

"To convene the Jubilee, the Pope delivered a so-called bull. It is entitled "Misericordie Vultus,” or "The Face of Mercy.” The text includes 25 points that the Pope believes are important for the upcoming year." See the link for more information on this topic!

For many of us, one of the highlights of the Jubilee Year will be walking through one of the doors of Mercy which are available in Trinidad and Tobago or in another part of the world.

However for some, the highlight of the Jubilee Year will be the rediscovery of the practice of the works of Mercy. According to one of the article, one of the key points is "It invites Catholics to rediscover works of mercy".  Click on the link in the preceding paragraph to discover more on the topic.

Update: 1 The Order of Preachers or The Dominicans are also celebrating a Jubilee Year of Mercy which end in January 2017. Within Trinidad and Tobago there are designated churches where the Jubilee Prayer is posted along with the conditions for receiving an indulgence.
2 One of my sisters is undertaking some Bible study classes and earlier in 2015 they were undertaking a study of the prophets of the Bible, such as Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Hosea. Shortly after starting to read the books on the prophets, the Jubilee Year of Mercy was announced. Here is a link to a site with information on the prophets.
