CWN Editor's Note: On April 25, Pope Francis received a group of Missionaries of Mercy—priests who, since the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy (2015-16), have been granted the faculties to absolve sins reserved to the Apostolic See (Canons 1367, 1370, 1378, 1382, 1388).

“Here then is the exhortation I leave you: always have the blanket of mercy at hand, to envelop with its warmth all those who approach you to be forgiven; offer consolation to those who are sad and lonely; be generous like Ruth, because only in this way will the Lord recognize you as his faithful ministers,” the Pope said.
