On the 23.11.2016 it finally happened: The publishing management of M&S Publishers, together with Domi Exclusiv, was able to hand over the first edition of the glorious illustrated Bible – the Bible of Mercy to pope Francis. Pope Francis also wrote the preface of this very special bible.
The Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy (lat.: Iubilaeum Extraordinarium Misericordiae), held from 8th of December 2015 to the 20th of November 2016, was declared by pope Francis as holy year. We used this as occasion to publish the illustrated Bible with a limited edition of only 2016 numbered copies. Furthermore it is a pleasure for us that the personal blessing of pope Francis is accompanying this richly decorated complete edition of the Holy Scripture. A proportion of the revenue is intended for charitable purposes and will be donated to a children’s hospital in Africa.
