The Jubilee Year of Mercy will be inaugurated on 8 December, the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception and will run until 20 November 2016 which is the solemnity of Christ the King. Speaking about the Year of Mercy, Pope Francis said: "I am confident that the whole Church, which is in such need of mercy for we are sinners, will be able to find in this Jubilee the joy of rediscovering and rendering fruitful God’s mercy, with which we are all called to give comfort to every man and every woman of our time."
The authors of the hymn are Paul Inwood and Eugenio Costa, S.J.
