The Mercedarian Order will be celebrating its 800th Anniversary of Foundation in 2018. In preparation for that Jubilee Year, each preceding year has been dedicated to a proper devotion of the Order.
This year is dedicated to Christ, the Redeemer: The last year in preparation for the 800th Jubilee of the Order’s Foundation ( 1218-2018 ). Christ Jesus is the image of the invisible God: Christ Jesus is the Face of the Father: Christ Jesus is our Redeemer who has ransomed us from the slavery of sin and the snares of the from living as a “free” child of God.
