Pope Francis marked Sunday 6 November as a Jubilee for Prisoners.
He celebrated Mass for the Jubilee in Saint Peter's Basilica, during
which he reminded the 1000+ attending prison detainees to never
lose hope, or fall into the temptation that they can never be forgiven.
Catholic Church in Australia also celebrated the Jubilee for Prisoners
across the weekend as part of the Year of Mercy. On behalf of the
Australian Catholic Prisoners Pastoral Care Council, Bishop Terry Brady
prepared a special video message for prisoners. And there's also an informative article by David Halliday on the
Jubilee for Prisoners and the important work of prison chaplains in the current (November) issue of Melbourne Catholic magazine, available in parishes.
