HOLY PLACES: DOORS OF MERCY
On the occasion of Lent 2016 and the Year of Mercy, the Commissariat offers to the Catholics of Canada and elsewhere three (3) meditations and prayers of praise. These will establish a connection between a situation and an event of mercy experienced in a place venerated by Christian tradition as a holy site. These short meditations and prayers of praise will be proposed in an exercise of prayer recalling the key manifestations of God’s goodness. The historical and geographical settings of such events of mercy are meant to let the faithful enter through the Holy Doors of the main Basilicas of the Holy Land, i.e. the Annunciation in Nazareth, the Nativity in Bethlehem and the Resurrection in Jerusalem.
The above or a part may be used for purposes of personal or community prayer, in the context of a pastoral activity like a visit to a Door of Mercy, the organization of a retreat, the initiative of “24 Hours of Prayer”* proposed by Pope Francis.
