This December sees the commencement of Pope Francis’ Holy Year Of Mercy. The Jubilee Year will formally open on 8th December with the opening of the Holy Door of St Peter’s Basilica in Rome, which is usually bricked up. The Pope states that the Biblical theme is “Be Merciful just as your Father is merciful “. He also says that the Holy Door will become “ a Door of Mercy through which anyone who enters will experience the Love of God who consoles, pardons and instills hope”.
The opening of the Holy Door In St Peter’s will be followed by the opening of doors in cathedrals throughout the world.
