Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy Hymn
On August 10, 2015, the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization (PCPNE) has released the official hymn of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy.
The title of the hymn is the same as the jubilee’s motto: “Misericordes sicut Pater” (Merciful like the Father). The hymn was written by Father Eugenio Costa, an Italian Jesuit, and set to music by Paul Inwood, an English organist and composer.
The authors of the original music have donated the copyright of this work to the PCPNE in order to facilitate the distribution of the Hymn of the Jubilee of Mercy throughout the Catholic Church.
