A Jubilee Prayer for Mercy Adapted from Misericordiae Vultus, 
papal bull of induction
proclaiming the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy 

Loving God 

Help us live out in our daily lives the mercy which you
constantly extend to all of us.
As you cast open the doors of your heart to us may we
respond with urgency to proclaim your mercy to others.
May we always be credible witnesses to mercy, professing it
and living it as the core of the revelation of Jesus Christ.
May we never tire of extending mercy, and be ever patient in
offering compassion and comfort.
May we become the voice of every man and woman, and repeat confidently without end:
"Be mindful of your mercy, O Lord, and your steadfast love, for they have been from of old." (Ps 25:6)
