Enduring provisions of mercy

Although the Extraordinary Jubilee Year has concluded, we are still living in a “time of mercy.” That was the message of Pope Francis in a lengthy Apostolic Letter, entitled Misericordia et misera  (read full version here) which was issued on Monday following the close of the Year of Mercy.

St Mary's College, Oscott held public lectures during the Jubilee Year and Mgr John Hadley's offering on 19 September entitled Justice & Mercy: Uneasy Bedfellow or a Seamless Garment can be accessed here.

The season of Advent itself is a season of mercy. A time when we are invited to look forward to the Second Coming of Christ and remember, his first coming, the birth of the Saviour. Here, Fr Joseph O'Hanlon kindly provides some resources: A prologue to Advent and a detailed programme to follow.

The hero of St Matthew’s Infancy Narrative (chapters 1 and 2) is, of course, Joseph.  That’s not strictly true because it is God who emerges from the stories in Matthew’s Gospel, from first page to last, as the instigator behind all that is done and all that is said. Fr Joseph's reflections on Joseph the Dreamer can be found here.

On the Second Sunday of Advent we concern ourselves with wise men and watching shepherds representing two expectant peoples. Reflections on this can be found here for the Second Sunday in Advent.
