As this Jubilee Year of Mercy winds down, it is good to reflect on all the gifts it has brought us over the past year. In history, many artists, musicians, and authors have been inspired by jubilee years to create art, music, and prose that touch the soul. I have compiled a few of the items over this past year from this blog, and from recent news items on the closing of the Jubilee of Mercy (Feast of Christ the King – Sunday, November 20, 2016).
