"How many are the wounds borne by the flesh of those who have no voice because their cry is muffled and drowned out by the indifference of the rich! During this Jubilee, the Church will be called even more to heal these wounds, to assuage them with the oil of consolation, to bind them with mercy and cure them with solidarity and vigilant care" (Misericordiae Vultus, #15).

 

Center team members Christine Hyland, Director of Development, and Anna Misleh, Assistant Editor of Education for Justice, celebrate the opening of the Year of Mercy at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception with His Eminence Donald Cardinal Wuerl on December 8, 2015.
