Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy: 2015-2016

Merciful like the Father

Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven. ( Luke 6.36)

The Holy Year of Mercy will be a moment of true grace for all Christians a time for convertione and reconciliation with God.

Pope Francis, moved by the human, social and cultural issues of our times, wished to give the City of Rome and the Universal Church a special and extraordinary Holy Year of Grace, Mercy and Peace.

With the Bull of Indiction of the Jubilee Misericordiae vultus of 11 April 2015, the Pope details the aims of this Holy Year: to recall the Church to its primary mission of always being a symbol and witness of mercy in all aspects of pastoral life.

And the motto of the Jubilee, taken from Luke's Gospel, Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful, invites all the faithful to be merciful following the example of the Lord who asks us not to judge and not to condemn but to forgive and give love and forgiveness without measure.

The Holy Door is the arrival point of spiritual and physical journey of every pilgrim who comes to Roma, a personal encounter whit Christ: “I am the gate for the sheep…. whoever enters through me will be saved; they will come in and go out, and find pasture.” (GV 10,7,9)
