Pope Francis has called for the Year of Mercy, and at Dynamic Catholic we have spent the last several months reflecting on how we can serve you and your parishes in a powerful way to discover and experience the Year of Mercy. I will tell you what we came up with in a moment.
But first, something personal. This quest deep into the meaning and experience of mercy has made me realize something about myself that I have always known at different levels, but always need reminding of.
A couple of week ago, I wrote in my Mass Journal, “I wake up every morning with an untreated case of selfishness. There is no once and for all cure for it. It has to be treated each day. And the only way to treat it is to get outside of myself. I cannot think my way out of this selfishness, I have to act my way out of it by serving others.”
The Year of Mercy is a powerful invitation to serve others. I hope together we can all respond to that invitation.
To help you and your parish have a powerful experience during this Year of Mercy, we came up with two initiatives.

This week I am excited to be on a pilgrimage to Italy with a group of Dynamic Catholic Ambassadors. We are offering Mass and praying for you and your families during the trip. Please pray for Dynamic Catholic and the work we are doing here.
May God bless you and all those you love,
