Pope Francis has declared this the Year of Mercy, beginning on December 8th, 2015 (The Immaculate Conception) and lasting until November 20, 2016 (Solemnity of Christ the King). It is a jubilee year, which is traditionally a time of healing and forgiveness in the Church. The Year of Mercy focuses on the merciful heart of God - receiving His mercy, and extending it to others.
