JUBILEE YEAR OF MERCY
December 8, 2015 - November 20, 2016
The "Jubilee of Mercy" commenced with the opening of the Holy Door in St. Peter’s (Rome) on the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception, December 8, 2015 (50th Anniversary of the closing of the Second Vatican Council), and will conclude on November 20, 2016 with the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, King of the Universe. The doors of every Cathedral in the world will be opened and designated "Doors of Mercy" during this year and even the doors of parish churches will be blessed as symbolic reminders that all the faithful are offered an "extraordinary pathway to salvation" through the Church. During the Jubilee, the Sunday readings for Ordinary Time will be taken from the Gospel of Luke, the one referred to as "the evangelist of mercy". There are many well-known parables of mercy presented in the Gospel of Luke: the lost sheep, the lost coin, the merciful father. The Holy Year is always an opportunity to deepen one’s faith and to live with a renewed commitment to Christian witness. With the Jubilee of Mercy, Pope Francis focuses attention upon the merciful God who invites all men and women to return to Him.
