Year of Mercy - Opening the Holy Door
Pope Francis has called an extraordinary Jubilee that is to have the mercy of God at its heart. In the Pope’s words ‘It shall be a Holy Year of Mercy. We want to live this Year in the light of the Lord’s words:
“Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. (cf. Lk 6:36)”’
The Holy Year began on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception(8 December, 2015) and will end on 20 November, 2016, the Feast of Christ the King.
During this time the Holy Doors in St Peter’s Basilica and the other Papal Basilicas, which are usually bricked-up, will be opened.
Bishop Leahy opened a Holy Door of Mercy in St John's Cathedral on 13th December, 2015
