Mercy and Compassion in Jubilee Year by Olga Lucia Alvarez Benjumea ARCWP

Logo in Spanish

In many time in my life, I felt that I should stop, I remain as dry braking, and there are impulses that drive again. Not me I can step over. What happens when I?Almost every day, and more and more, especially when I open myself to His Presence. He / She is a visit that does not hinder, not tired, not Bug Me, opposite those moments inspire me, encourage me, challenge me, I become creative, wake up, fills me with hope, daffodils and always-alive .

Since Francisco announced the Jubilee Year of Mercy, I immediately head rondo the concept of "mercy" that we were taught ...


Too bad for the other.

Oh no! This can not be. We would be trampling the dignity of others / a.

Francisco whenever we can is clarifying and reformulating the concept of "Mercy".He said: "The mercy without works is dead in itself", "mercy is not an abstract word but a way of  life " (3).

This reminds me of what they taught us in school, about the things that are necessary to make a good confession. According to the Catechism of P.Astete sj Recordémoslas:

1) Examination of Conscience
2) Contrition of heart
3) Purpose of Amendment
4) Confession mouth
5) Satisfaction of work

According to that I leave consideration for us to discover what we will be failing, so that the Mercy of the Jubilee Year a reality? Without making accusations, without judging, without condemning, without blame. Where is the fault?

There is sadness, surprise, distrust, pain, among divorced people, unable to receive Communion. There is pain, sadness, surprise, distrust between the Community LGTBI. There is pain, sadness, surprise, mistrust, fear among women, increasingly rejected, marginalized identified. We are pointing to want to end the "Church" because we are asking for gender equality and non-sexism in the institution as such. Women, we are accused of families are running because they have been and are promoting divorce, abortion, contraceptive use and sexual orientation disorder in children. Women are to blame for the temples look increasingly empty of young ... many times have we heard that women sin entered into the world, to homes, to the Church and in the mouth of whom?

There is talk of poverty, ignorance, inequality, imbalance in society ... and encourages the realization of human and social works. But, "not by bread alone doth man live," (Luke 4: 4, Matthew 4: 4, Deuteronomy 8: 3)

I think we have to start by giving a new definition to the mercy and compassion.For being honest / as with ourselves / os, let's start by making a good confession:

  • Examination of Conscience. This almost done, but not finished.
  • Contrition of heart. Same.
  • Purpose of the amendment. Sure did but for what suits.
  • Boca confession. Not everything has been said, it is missing.
  • Work satisfaction. This behind the scenes, very few results.

So? Well, to make a good Jubilee Year, and that nobody is left out, because the doors are open ... this as confusing as Agreements for Peace, of which are discussed in Colombia.

Mercy and Compassion for me is above all a welcoming embrace, full of love. The Divine Essence, unforgiving , AMA!

"Jesus straightened up and saw none but the woman, he said: Woman, where are those thine accusers? Has no one condemned you? John 8: 10 "

Do not even attempt to embarrass her and ask that she felt guilty ... She also apologized, she felt loved, protected, dignified! full of joy She was sheltered by Divine Love!
