Bishop Leahy will be opening a Holy Door of Mercy in St. John’s Cathedral at the 12 noon Mass next Sunday, December 13th.
You are welcome to attend.
The Door will be open for the duration of the Year of Mercy.
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)”’
This Holy Year will begin 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.
