Any efforts at reform or renewal of the Catholic church that do not place God's mercy at the center of their work are "useless" because they make Catholics "slaves" to the church's institutions, Pope Francis said 9th December, 2015. Speaking in his weekly general audience in St. Peter's Square just one day after launching his global Jubilee year of mercy, the pontiff said that "only a merciful church shines."

Mercy, the fundamental law that reigns the heart of every person...

"We need constantly to contemplate the mystery of mercy. It is a wellspring of joy, serenity, and peace. Our salvation depends on it. Mercy: the word reveals the very mystery of the Most Holy Trinity. Mercy: the ultimate and supreme act by which God comes to meet us. Mercy: the fundamental law that dwells in the heart of every person who looks sincerely into the eyes of his brothers and sisters on the path of life..." Misericordiae Vultus

Love Your Neighbour as Thyself. Loving God and Neighbour in the same way God loves us is the mission entrusted to us through our Baptismal call. In other word we are called to be God to our immediate person. It is the way God loves us.
