Sisters may be interested in the book entitled The Holy Year of Mercy. This is a Faith-Sharing Guide with Reflections by Pope Francis. It is compiled by Susan Heuver. Each of the eight sessions features a Gospel passage followed by a homily on that passage by Pope Francis. Questions for reflection and discussion focus on both the Scripture and the homily. It can be used for individuals or small groups.
On Ash Wednesday, Development and Peace will be launching its Share Lent campaign focusing on the theme Create a Climate for Change inspired by Pope Francis' encyclical Laudato Si' and the Jubilee Year of Mercy. For almost 50 years Development and Peace has accomplished outstanding development work in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East. In fact, the 50th anniversary is next year, 2017, with celebrations beginning this year. The Share Lent campaign is designated as our annual fundraiser. As well, people may help financially by sharing year-round through our monthly donations program.
