Missionaries of Mercy

This coming Ash Wednesday at the Vatican, Pope Francis will send forth “Missionaries of Mercy,” priests recommended by their bishops to be “living signs of the Father’s readiness to welcome those in search of His pardon.” From what we understand, there will be 800 Missionaries of Mercy commissioned, 100 for the United States alone. During this Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, they will be available, at the request of local bishops, to lead retreats and preach spiritual conferences.
