Year of Mercy Prayer

Lord Jesus Christ,
you have taught us to be merciful
like the heavenly Father
and have told us that whoever sees you sees Him. 
Let the Church be your visible face in the world. 
Send your spirit so that the Jubilee of Mercy
may be a year of grace from the Lord,
and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm,
bring good news to the poor,
proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed, and restore sight to the blind.
We ask this through
the intercession of Mary,
Mother of Mercy,
you who live and reign with the Father
and the Holy Spirit
forever and ever.

Adapted from the prayer penned by Pope Francis.

Año de Jubileo de la Misericordia

Señor Jesucristo,
tú nos has enseñado a ser misericordiosos
como el Padre del cielo,
y nos has dicho que quien te ve,
lo ve también a Él.
Haz que, en el mundo, la Iglesia sea tu rostro visible.
Manda tu Espíritu para que el Jubileo de la Misericordia
sea un año de gracia del Señor
y tu Iglesia pueda, con renovado entusiasmo,
llevar la Buena Nueva a los pobres
proclamar la libertad a los prisioneros y oprimidos
y restituir la vista a los ciegos.
Te lo pedimos por
intercesión de María,
Madre de la Misericordia,
tu que vives y reinas con el Padre
y el Espíritu Santo
por los siglos de los siglos.

Adaptada de la oración escrita por el Papa Francisco.
