A Jesuit Pope


Novenas & Prayers

Year of Mercy


popes crest Pope Francis has chosen the motto Miserando atque eligendo, meaning lowly but chosen; literally in Latin ‘by having mercy, by choosing him’. The motto, which the Pope first chose as a bishop in Argentina is taken from the homilies of the venerable Bede, the 7th century English monk, on the call of Matthew: ‘Jesus saw the tax collector and by having mercy chose him as an Apostle saying to him: ‘Follow me.’ This homily, which focuses on divine mercy and is reproduced in the Liturgy of the hours on the Feast of St Matthew, has taken on special significance in the Pope’s life and spiritual journey. In fact it was on the Feast of St Matthew in 1953 that the young 17 year old Jorge Bergoglio was touched by the mercy of God and felt the call to religious life in the footsteps of St Ignatius of Loyola. Beyond the motto, the coat of arms has a blue field and is surmounted by the mitre and the papal keys. On the crest itself at the centre is the symbol of the Jesuits, a flaming sun with the three letters recalling the name and the salvific mission of Jesus. Underneath we have two more symbols: to the right the star representing Mary and to the left the nard flower representing Joseph.

Year of Mercy Prayer

All loving Father, you sent Jesus your Son to show us Your mercy and to teach us how to forgive one another.

Pour out Your Holy Spirit upon us. Help us to remember that we are all sinners. Let this Year of Mercy be a pilgrimage, a journey back to You.

Make us ambassadors of mercy, sharing Your forgiveness with everyone, especially those who feel that they are beyond Your love. We make this prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen
