Carolina Catholic: Bishop Burbidge and the Year of Mercy

In this show, Bishop Burbidge prepares us for the upcoming Year of Mercy, and Billy Atwell, Director of Communications for our diocese and the host of A Catholic Life, will join Judi Paparozzi in an interview of our Bishop.  In April 2015, Pope Francis announced an extraordinary jubilee, a Holy Year of Mercy, to highlight the Catholic Church's "mission to be a witness of mercy."  The year will begin on December 8th to commemorate both the Feast of the Immaculate Conception and the 50th anniversary of the closing of the Second Vatican Council, which called the Church to bring God’s mercy to everyone. The motto for this year is “Merciful like the Father.” Some of the many events to celebrate this year of Mercy will include the openings of Holy Doors throughout the world including the Basilica Shrine of St. Mary, pilgrimages, a jubilee indulgence, 24 hours for the Lord, Missionaries of Mercy, and the World Youth Day in Krakow, Poland.
