Jubilee Year of Divine Mercy: It's all about Life

by Fr. Frank Pavone

Priests for Life welcomes with joy the news of the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, to begin on December 8, 2015 and continue until November, 2016. Shortly after the announcement, Fr. Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, spoke at a major Divine Mercy Conference in the Archdiocese of New York and also interviewed, for our EWTN program Defending Life, some of the Church's top experts on Divine Mercy who were present there: Father Seraphim Michalenko, MIC, Fr. Kazimierez Chwalek, MIC, and Dr. Robert Stackpole.

Fr. Frank also traveled to Rome and spoke with officials who are assisting the implementation of the Jubilee Year of mercy.

In these various presentations and discussions, three key themes emerged and will be the focus of Priests for Life:

Jesus Himself is Divine Mercy. His first act of mercy is to create us. Mercy brings life, and mercy impels us to defend the most defenseless to save their lives.

In the revelations of Divine Mercy to St. Faustina, abortion was the primary sin for which God asked us to cry out for his mercy, and today, the devotion to Divine Mercy deserves particular emphasis for those who have had abortions and for abortionists and clinic workers who have repented.

The Jubilee Year of Mercy is a perfect time to recommit ourselves to deeds of mercy in rescuing the unborn, and works of mercy in healing the wounded, especially Rachel's Vineyard, the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, and the Society of Centurions (healing for ex-abortionists).
