End of the "Year of Mercy"

Sunday Nov 20 marked the end of the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, called by Pope Francis, and opened on 29th Nov 2015. Last Sunday was the end of the Year of Mercy. Is this now the end of Mercy?
The Jubilee Year of Extraordinary Mercy is ended, but Mercy is the Name of God (Deu.4:31, Neh.9:31), and is eternal.
(Deu. 4:31; Neh. 9:31)

Among the works of mercy are these:
  • Feed the hungry
  • Give drink to the thirsty
  • Clothe the naked
  • Visit the sick
  • Bear wrongs patiently
  • Forgive offenses willingly
  • Comfort the afflicted
In this season of Thanksgiving, we can show our thankfulness with works of mercy.

That is the most beautiful Thanksgiving thought that I can imagine... to show our gratitude by doing little things with great love to those who need it the most!
