A special series for the Jubilee of Mercy


The Lay Centre will beckon spring with a special six-week series on God’s mercy in the three Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

ROME — God’s mercy “goes beyond the confines of the Church” and “relates” Christianity to Judaism and Islam, which understand mercy as one of God’s most important attributes, said Pope Francis in proclaiming the Holy Year of Mercy currently underway.

Building on the pope’s message, The Lay Centre has organized a special six-week series, starting 11 February, called “Mercy Beyond Boundaries.”

The series will focus on the meaning and importance of God’s mercy in all three Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Scholars from the three religions will share with participants how God’s mercy is understood and perceived in their respective traditions.

Held on site in Rome, the lectures form part of the programming offered through The Lay Centre’s Vincent Pallotti Institute.

Always in view of the Holy Year underway, the programming also includes a Lenten retreat, 4-6 March, aimed at helping participants grow in knowledge of God’s mercy in their own lives. Contact info@laycentre.org for information or to register.

See the full program schedule below.
