Mercy that Transforms: Creating Spaces of Hope

Who better to share with us during the Holy Year of Mercy than Mary Jo Leddy, CM, a Canadian writer, speaker, theologian and social activist, who is widely recognized for her work with refugees at Toronto’s Romero House.

In this Holy Year, we look forward to the experience of opening our hearts to those living on the outermost fringes of society: fringes which modern society itself creates! . . . . Let us open our eyes and see the misery of the world, the wounds of our brothers and sisters who are denied their dignity, and let us recognize that we are compelled to heed their cry for help! May we reach out to them and support them so they can feel the warmth of our presence, our friendship, and our fraternity!

Pope Francis, on the Holy Year of Mercy
