The day he entrusted the world to God’s
Mercy, St John Paul II in the sanctuary of the Divine Mercy in
Lagiewniki, near Krakow, declared : In the mercy of God the
world will find peace and mankind will find happiness … May
you be witnesses to mercy !
(17 August 2002)
Pope Francis very often invites every baptized person to be a missionary of Jesus : « show by your life and also by your words that God love each one of us and never tires of anyone »
All of us are invited to “go out” as missionary disciples,
each generously offering their talents, creativity, wisdom and
experience in order to bring the message of God’s tenderness and
compassion to the entire human family. (…)
The Church cares for those who do
not know the Gospel, because she wants everyone to be saved and to
experience the Lord’s love. She
“is commissioned to announce the mercy of God, the beating heart of
the Gospel” (Misericordiae
Vultus, 12) and to proclaim
mercy in every corner of the world, reaching every person, young or
(Message of Pope Francis for world mission day 2016).
Over the months, you will discover witnesses of Mercy, nowadays, and Holy Apostles of Mercy.
