The logo of the Jubilee of mercy was produced by Jesuit Father Marko Ivan Rupnik, well known in Lourdes for creating the mosaics of the Luminous Mysteries that adorn the Rosary Basilica. It is presented as a little theological summary of the theme of mercy. It shows Christ carrying Adam on his shoulders, a symbol of our humanity. As the Good Shepherd, Christ takes upon himself the burden of
our injured humanity not to condemn but to raise it up. Mercy is to be seen in the exchange of glances when Christ’s eyes merge with those of man: through love they are restored to one another and emerge from the darkness. Finally, the motto «merciful like the Father», which accompanies the logo, taken from the Gospel of Luke, suggests that our lives should be the embodiment of mercy following the example
of the Father, who asks us not to judge or condemn but to forgive and to love without measure.

Prayer of Pope Francis for the Jubilee

Lord Jesus Christ,
you have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father,
and have told us that whoever sees you sees Him.
Show us your face and we will be saved.
Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew from being enslaved by money;
the adulteress and Magdalene from seeking happiness only in created things;
made Peter weep after his betrayal,
and assured Paradise to the repentant thief.
Let us hear, as if addressed to each one of us, the words that you spoke to the Samaritan woman:
“If you knew the gift of God!”
You are the visible face of the invisible Father,
of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy:
let the Church be your visible face in the world, its Lord risen and glorified.
You willed that your ministers would also be clothed in weakness
in order that they may feel compassion for those in ignorance and error:
let everyone who approaches them feel sought after, loved, and forgiven by God.
Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with its anointing,
so that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord,
and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor,
proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed,
and restore sight to the blind. 
We ask this of you, Lord Jesus, through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Mercy;
you who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.
Amen
