As part of the Jubilee for Priests, Pope Francis prepared three meditations on the topic “mercy in its various aspects.” The first meditation was read today at the Basilica of St. John Lateran (extensive text in English, full text, full video), the second today at the Basilica of St. Mary Major (extensive text in English, full text, full video), and the third at St. Paul Outside-the-Walls (extensive text in English, full text, full video).
