The Year of Mercy is perhaps one of the greatest signs that the wind of hope blows still in our world. It proves that the Spirit of God speaks to the Churches still at a period when the world is facing threats of extinction due to human activities. While it replicates Pope St John XXIII’s intention for the Second Vatican Council - opening the window for some freshness, it reminds the world of its constant reliance on God’s merciful love and calls humanity to loosen its bond on its captives — the environment. This paper therefore proposes a reinterpretation of the meaning of mercy to encompass even the non human neighbour.
