Advent Moments of Mercy - "God's sending of Jesus is an act of mercy for the world, and so the season of Advent is a perfect time for reflection upon themes of mercy and hope. Pope Francis has called upon all Catholics to be a living sign of God's love for the world. By embracing the call to mercy, we will know the full grace of the season."
