Mercy Chapel

Last Saturday evening, I was invited to attend the opening of these doors at Mercy Chapel. This event is part of Pope Francis’ year of Jubilee. By passing through the doors, the Holy Doors at Saint Peter’s Basilica, or one of many sites around the world, one symbolically receives God’s mercy, grace, and forgiveness from sin. It is also to be a reminder to extend mercy, grace, and forgiveness to all.

That fiftieth year shall be a Jubilee to you; in it you shall neither sow nor reap what grows of its own accord, nor gather the grapes of your untended vine. For it is the Jubilee; it shall be holy to you; you shall eat its produce from the field. ‘In this Year of Jubilee, each of you shall return to his possession.
…Therefore you shall not oppress one another, but you shall fear your God; for I am the LORD your God.
~ Leviticus 25 ~
