Lord, if what I seek be according to our will, then let it come to pass and let success attend the outcome. 
But if not, my God, let it not come to pass. Do not leave me to my own devices, for you know how unwise 
I can be. 
Keep me safe under your protection Lord my God, and in your own gentle way 
Guide me and rule me as you know best.. Amen

Pope Francis has announced a special Jubilee, or Holy Year beginning on the 8th of December.  A Holy Year normally takes place every 25 years, the last one being the Great Jubilee of the Year 2000.  Now and again, such as in 1933 and 1983, the Pope can call an extraordinary Holy Year.  The theme of the Holy Year is Mercy.  Pope Francis often speaks of mercy.  He has said "the Church must be a place of mercy freely given, where everyone can feel welcomed, loved, forgiven and encouraged to live the good life of the Gospel."  Our prayer for the coming Holy Year and this Divine Mercy Sunday is that God will give us all the grace to show mercy and receive mercy
