​​​                        A Prayer for the Year of Mercy
​ Lord Jesus Christ, you have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father, and have told us that whoever sees You sees God. ​Show us your face and we will be saved. You are the visible face of the invisible Father, of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy: let the Church be your visible face in the world. Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with its anointing, so that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord, and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor, proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed, and restore sight to the blind.
