E-mail Print PDF

Logo Jubilee of MercyPope Francis will preside at the closing celebration of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy in Saint Peter's Basilica on November 20, 2016, the Solemnity of Christ the King, with the Holy Father officially closing the Holy Door of the Basilica. The Jubilee Year began on December 8, 2015, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception. During one of the last events of the Jubilee Year, on November 13 in Rome, the Jubilee for Socially Excluded People, the Holy Father recalled in his homily that "The human person, set by God at the pinnacle of creation, is often discarded, set aside in favour of ephemeral things. This is unacceptable, because in God's eyes man is the most precious good." This celebration was part of the major Jubilee events over the past year and had been preceded by several others since the opening of the Extraordinary Jubilee, including those for children, youth, those in mourning, deacons, priests, the sick, prisoners, catechists, and the papal nuncios.
