  • Jubilee Year of Mercy

    The Extraordinary Jubilee
    Year of Mercy
    December 8, 2015 – November 20, 2016
    Saying he has “thought often about how the church can make more evident its mission of being a witness of mercy” the pope announced the new jubilee year during a Lenten penitential service in St. Peter’s Basilica.
    Pope Francis – “I chose the date of December 8 because it is full of meaning for the recent history of the Church.  Indeed I will open the Holy Door in the fiftieth anniversary of the conclusion of the Second Vatican Council.  The Church feels the need to keep alive that event – for she was beginning a new path in its history.  The Fathers gathered in council had felt strong, like a breath of the Spirit, the need to speak of God to men of their time in a more understandable way.  Torn down the walls that for too long had locked up the Church in a  privileged citadel, it was time to announce the Gospel in a new way.  A new stage of evangelization ever.  A new commitment for all Christians - to bear witness with more enthusiasm and conviction of their faith.  The Church felt the responsibility to be in the world, the living sign of the love of the Father.”
