On Ash Wednesday, Pope Francis commissioned Missionaries of Mercy during the Ash Wednesday.
Pope Francis's Description of a Missionary of Mercy
"A missionary of mercy carries the sinner on his shoulders and consoles him or her with the power of compassion. When you feel the weight of sin confessed to you, and the limitations of your person and your words, trust in the power of mercy that goes out to meet everyone as a love that knows no boundaries."
