Dear friends, with great joy we heard Pope Francis announcing the Extraordinary Jubilee of the Divine Mercy and, – as Radio Maria – we must right away prepare programmes able to help our listeners to fruitfully experience this time of grace. The Divine Mercy is traditionally one of the most recurrent themes in programming Radio Maria schedules. During the Holy Year of the Jubilee this must be the focus of our broadcasts.
“I have decided to proclaim an Extraordinary Jubilee focusing on God’s Mercy. It will be a Holy Year of the Mercy. We want to live this year in the light of the Lord’s Word: “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. The Holy Year will begin on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception and will end on 20th November 2016, the Sunday of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the universe and living image of the Father’s mercy”.
“I entrust the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelisation with the organization of this Jubilee, to make it live as a new stage of the Church’s mission to bring the Gospel of mercy to each person. He continued, “I am convinced that this Jubilee will enable the whole Church to find the joy of discovering again God’s mercy and make it grow, through which we are all called to console each man and each woman of our time”.
“The Church is a home that welcomes everyone and rejects no one. Its doors remain wide open, so that those who are touched by the grace may find the certainty of forgiveness”.
God bless you
