These pages condense an important part of Pope Francis' teching during the Jubilee Year: his reflections proposed to the people who have received the sacrament of Orders - deacons, priests, bishops - and every consecrated person. Addressing them, Pope Francis uses an image dear to him: the prodigal son of Luke's parable, who has returned home and was festively dressed by his father. The son remains dirt, yet he is coated with forgiveness. Only if we experience this "embarassed dignity", to use again the words of the Pope, we can become the neighbor of every person who is looking for forgiveness and mercy. To live the experience of mercy we are called to be signs and instruments of mercy for all.

A call to become the neighbor of every person who is looking for forgiveness and mercy.
