Year of Mercy Ends
“Although the Year of Mercy finishes, mercy never ends, although the Year of Mercy finishes, mercy is triumphant,” Archbishop Christopher Prowse said before officially closing the Holy Door at St Christopher’s Cathedral.
Speaking to a full congregation on the Feast of Christ the King, Archbishop Prowse took time out to thank the Lord for all the many blessings which took place during the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy.
He commented on a resurgence in the number of confessions taking place in parishes throughout the Archdiocese.
During his homily, Archbishop Prowse also spoke about Christians obtaining a deeper level of peace which comes from God.
“God is love, God is mercy, God is peace,” he said.
“Peace begins when the heart is touched by God.
“The fruit of love is peace.”
After Mass, Archbishop Prowse went underneath the Cathedral to the crypt where he prayed for the previous Archbishop’s in the Archdiocese. He blessed their graves as a mark of respect for November being the month of Holy Souls.
