Giubileo della Misericordia

Easter will be in few days and many events have already been planned in order to celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus. The Holy Week is one of the most important moment to the Catholics from all over the world who will visit Rom in order to take part into the spiritual events, most of which will be held by the Holy Father.

The Jubilee event dedicated to the boys and girls will be in Rome from 23rd to 25th April. Pope Francis encouraged all the boys and girls all over the world to take part in it, exhorting them to come to Rome on the occasion of this great celebration of Mercy, the main theme of the Extraordinary Jubilee: “This grace-filled moment also concerns you, dear young people. I encourage you to take an active part in this celebration and to realize that each of you is a child of God. I would like to invite you, one by one, calling you by name, as Jesus does each day.”

One of the most awaited events for the year of the Jubilee of Mercy is the Jubilee of boys and girls. The event is on the 23rd, 24th and 25th April 2016 and will be held in Rome. The event is addressed to all the boys and girls between 13 and 16 years old to whom three days full with events and meetings have been organized.

The central and supporting topic of the Extraordinary Jubilee, announced by Pope Francis, is Mercy, the moral virtue, central in the Christian ethics, that realizes itself through works of pity or mercy. It is also for this reason that a whole day will be dedicated to the blood donors. In fact, on Saturday, 20 February, the Jubilee of the Blood Donors will take place in St. Peter’s square with the participation of Pope Francis who will meet the donors.   

The Jubilee is the year of the remission of sins, the reconciliation, the conversion and the sacrament of penance. Shown below the instructions in order to gain indulgence during the Jubilee of Mercy, announced by Pope Francis.

Firstly, it is necessary to make a pilgrimage to a Holy Door. In Rome: Saint Peter's Basilica, Archbasilica of St. John Lateran, Basilica of Saint Mary the Great, Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls.

In addition, during the days before or after the Pilgrimage, it is necessary to confess. It is also provided the participation in the Holy Mass, the confession of faith, that is the recital of the Creed. Indeed, it is necessary to pray according to the intentions of the Holy Father. 

Indulge can be gained also for one or more deceased people. 

The people who, due to health problems or aging, are not able to leave their houses, gain indulgence feeling close to God, receiving the Holy Communion and taking part in the Holy Mass, also by television. 

Papa Francesco explained what the indulgence is: “In the Sacrament of Reconciliation, God forgives our sins, which he truly blots out”. And yet “sin leaves a negative effect on the way we think and act. But the mercy of God is stronger even than this. It becomes indulgence on the part of the Father who, through the Bride of Christ, his Church, reaches the pardoned sinner and frees him from every residue left by the consequences of sin, enabling him to act with charity, to grow in love rather than to fall back into sin”. Through the indulgence the temporal punishment of the sins that have been already remitted with the Confession is remitted to the penitent sinner.

 

Lord Jesus Christ,
you have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father,
and have told us that whoever sees you sees Him.
Show us your face and we will be saved.
Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew from being enslaved by money;
the adulteress and Magdalene from seeking happiness only in created things;
made Peter weep after his betrayal,
and assured Paradise to the repentant thief.
Let us hear, as if addressed to each one of us, the words that you spoke to the Samaritan woman:
“If you knew the gift of God!”
You are the visible face of the invisible Father,
of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy:
let the Church be your visible face in the world, its Lord risen and glorified.
You willed that your ministers would also be clothed in weakness
in order that they may feel compassion for those in ignorance and error:
let everyone who approaches them feel sought after, loved, and forgiven by God.
Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with its anointing,
so that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord,
and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor,
proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed,
and restore sight to the blind.
We ask this through the intercession of Mary, Mother of Mercy,
you who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and ever.

Amen

Have a good Jubilee!

Today is a special day. On 17th December our Holy Father celebrates his birthday and it happens in the Year of Mercy, the one of the Extraordinary Jubilee that he strongly desired.

Pope Francis was born on 17th December 1936 in Flores, an area of Buenos Aires. His parents were originally Piedmontese. His life and spiritual experiences brought him to become the most important representative of the Catholic religion, with his election to Supreme Pontiff the night on 13th March 2013. Since his election his charisma and his purposes were clear:  “During the election, I was seated next to the Cardinal Claudio Hummes! When the votes reached two thirds, there was the usual applause, because the Pope had been elected. And he gave me a hug and a kiss, and said: “Don't forget the poor! Then, right away, thinking of the poor, I thought of Francis of Assisi. Then I thought of all the wars, as the votes were still being counted, till the end. Francis is also the man of peace. That is how the name came into my heart: Francis of Assisi.”

He has always been on the poor people’s side, he fights with strength the violence that afflicts the world and is disgusted by injustices and inequalities.  

Today is a special day because it is the birthday of a special person!

Also in Vatimecum we want to give Pope Francis the best wishes on his 79th birthday in order to face this Extraordinary Year with his enthusiasm and unmoving spiritual faith. And we join the wishes of Cardinal Santos Abril y Castelló so that Pope Francis has “all the help of God and Virgin Mary in order to achieve all he wants to do to reform the Church, so that it, in turns, can also be helpful to the whole humanity. With this help he continues with serenity and tranquillity in order to fell happy and joyful”.

Happy Birthday, Pope Francis!

The Jubilee of Mercy officially started yesterday. It has been an exciting and, to a certain extent, unique day also thanks to the presence of the Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI who was the first, after Pope Francis, to have crossed the Holy Door.

The Jubilee Year has begun 50 years after the end of the second Vatican Council, 15 years after the last Holy Year officiated by Pope John Paul II and not even one year after Pope Francis’s announcement of the Extraordinary Jubilee.

After the Holy Mass, about at 11 a.m. on 8th December, Pope Francis opened the Holy Door of the St. Peter's Basilica, accompanied by the applause of over 50.000 people who were attending the event.

During the homily Pope Francis encouraged to abandon “all fear and dread, for these do not befit men and women who are loved.”. He then stated that “to pass through the Holy Door means to rediscover the infinite mercy of the Father who welcomes everyone and goes out personally to encounter each of them”.

The real essence of this Extraordinary Jubilee has been expressed by Pope Francis’s words: “How much wrong we do to God and his grace when we speak of sins being punished by his judgment before we speak of their being forgiven by his mercy “.

Yesterday an extraordinary and unusual show has been staged, especially because of its location. A suggestive bright performance in St. Peter's Square: “Fiat lux: Illuminating Our common Home”. The St. Peter's Basilica and the most famous dome in the world have been the background of impressive shiny projections. The images, taken from the works by some great international photographs, were inspired by mercy, humanity, the natural world and the climate changes, that is all those meaningful topics to Pope Francis.

The show has been offered by World Bang Group, Paul G. Allen’s Vulcan Productions, Li Ka-shing foundation and Okeanos, whereas the pictures have been chosen from the works by some of the most important photographers and film-makers, ranging from the great photographer Sebastiano Salgado to Joel Sartore, from David Doubilet to Greg Hugling.

The event drew inspiration from the last encyclical by Pope Francis, “Laudato sì”, and was aimed at promoting the beauty of the universe, also in conjunction with the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference. Vatimecum was there and wants to show you some pictures!

After the official launch of the Portal on 4th December, held in the Vatican Press Room, we are ready to publish online the services that the business partners established to offer the pilgrims. Vatimecum’s mission is to safeguard the incoming pilgrims against the inflated prices which are being set during the Jubilee. In this regard, Archbishop Fisichella underlined the issue during the press conference: “The world is also made of darkness and sly individuals, who are only interested in profit, are always lurking. This is the reason why we asked for the realization a Portal aimed at safeguarding the pilgrims and we did it by controlling the prices and granting Vatimecum the official Jubilee logo”.

The pilgrims, who will take part in the Jubilee events, will have the possibility to rely on our Portal in order to buy online the services for their stay in Rome: from hotels to restaurants, from the transport from and to the airports in the capital city, to the organized tours in order to discover the beauties of Rome and the main places of worship.

Hospitality: we provide for any-class facilities with lower prices than any other online-booking platforms.

Where to eat/Catering: thanks to the partnership with Ticket Restaurant, pilgrims will be able to buy the “Jubilee Tickets” – that is special vouchers exclusively realized for the Jubilee – to be used in several cafes and restaurants in the capital.

Insurance: Thanks to UnipolSai, main supporter of the Jubilee of Mercy, a policy aimed at insuring the pilgrims during their stay in Rome will be sold on the Vatimecum portal.

Many other services are being added right now.

Follow us to find them out and to live the Jubilee of Mercy with no worries.

Welcome to Rome!

The Holy Doors refers to the doors in the four Papal Major Basilicas in Rome. The doors are normally sealed and are ceremoniously opened during Jubilee years.  
It is the most evocative ritual of the Holy Year and it marks its beginning. It symbolically expresses an extraordinary path to the salvation of all the worshippers.
The Holy Doors are in the Saint Peter's Basilica, the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran, the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls and the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore.
The Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy is beginning on 8th December with the opening of the Holy Door in the Saint Peter's Basilica. The one in the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran is being opened on 13th December. The Holy Doors in the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls and the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore are being opened in January, respectively on 1st and on 25th January 2016.
Not only in Rome: in the world there are other Holy Doors where the pilgrims may piously gain the plenary indulgences. For instance, Santiago de Compostela Cathedral, the Basilica di Santa Maria di Collemaggio dell’Aquila, the Notre-Dame Basilica-Cathedral and the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta in Atri. 
Let’s see in-depth the four Basilicas, that millions of pilgrims aim to visit during the Jubilee of Mercy.  
Saint Peter's Basilica
“You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church”: this is the sentence Jesus addressed to Peter, a fisherman of Galilee and later leader of the Apostles. Once in Rome, Peter was crucified where there is now the Vatican Obelisk. The Basilica rises in the place where he was executed. The architecture of the Basilica shows an intense correlation among Saint Peter’s tomb, the altar and the basilica itself creating a kind of physical and spiritual chain between Rome and Christ. From this perspective the Vatican is the new Holy Land, the new Jerusalem.
Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls
Paul converted to Christianity on the road to Damascus and was led to Rome in 61 AD and was persecuted and beheaded by the Acque Salvie, currently known as “Tre fontane” (the three fountain)that is the three sources arisen where the head of the Apostle fell. The Emperors built a huge Basilica to honour the Saint. It was destroyed by a fire in 1823 and rebuilt thanks to donations from all over the world. The portico of the basilica represents a pruning from the rest of the world, the four palm trees recall Jerusalem and the statue of the Saint encourage to be silent. 262 Popes are illustrated on the walls of the Basilica as a testimony of the apostolic succession.
Archbasilica of St. John Lateran
It is the cathedral of Rome and represents the mother of all the churches in the world. Every Pope lived in the archbasilica. The last, Pope Boniface VIII, announced the first Jubilee. The building was destroyed several times: by the barbarians during the V century, by an earthquake in the IX century and by two fire in 1300. Afterwards, it was abandoned during the Middle Ages. On the occasion of the 1650 Jubilee the Archbasilica was refurbished and divided in twelve aedicule that are symbols of the twelve doors of the Heavenly Jerusalem. The bronze door marks an ideal overtaking between the pagan and Christian Rome. An important destination of the pilgrimage is the Scala Sancta (Holy Stairs), the one that was climbed by Jesus during his trial.
Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore
The Marian Basilica was built in 432 according to the guidelines of Pope Sixtus III in order to glorify the heavenly maternity of Mary and it was the first Marian sanctuary of the Christianity, also called “little Bethlehem”. The apse represents the mother of God crowned by God and the triumphal arch symbolizes the birth and childhood of Jesus.

A few days before the beginning of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, strongly wanted by Pope Francis, let’s recall together its history and religious meaning.  
Origins of the Jubilee
By definition the Jubilee is the year of the remission of sins, the reconciliation, the conversion and the sacrament of penance. The word derives from the Jewish word Jobel, that is billy goat, in relation to the Jewish tradition that involved the use of the billy goat 's horn for holy ceremonies.
Every 100 years a Sabbatical year was imposed to plantings and harvestings in order to strengthen the following ones. In addition, the Sabbatical year allowed the return of the seized lands as well as the liberation of the slaves so that there wouldn’t have been a wide discrepancy between poor and rich people. The beginning of the Jubilee was marked by the sound of a billy goat’s horn, yobel, from which the Christian term Jubilee derives.
The Jubilee History
The Jubilee, commonly called Holy Year, can be ordinary (every 25 years) and extraordinary, as the one announced by Pope Francis.  
On 22nd February 1300 Boniface published the Bull Antiquorum habet fida relatio announcing the first Jubilee. Through this Bull the plenary indulgences could have been granted by those who had visited 30 times, if romans, and 15 times, if foreigners, the Saint Peter's Basilica and the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls during the same year. This Holy Years should have occurred every 100 years.   
Also Dante in the Divine Comedy tells about such a universal event, describing that the people flow was so impressive as to be regulated on Castel Sant’Angelo bridge.

« come i Roman per l'essercito molto,
l'anno del giubileo, su per lo ponte
hanno a passar la gente modo colto,

che da l'un lato tutti hanno la fronte
verso 'l castello e vanno a Santo Pietro,
da l'altra sponda vanno verso 'l monte. »

(Inferno XVIII, 28-33)

p

«E'en thus the Romans, when the year returns
Of Jubilee, with better speed to rid
The thronging multitudes, their means devise

For such as pass the bridge; that on one side
All front toward the castle, and approach
Saint Peter's fane, on th' other towards the mount.»

(Inferno XVIII, 28-33)

In 1350 Pope Clement VI reduced the sabbatical time to 50 years. Afterwards, it was reduced again to 33 years under Pope Urban VI, symbolizing the lifetime of Jesus, and to 25 years under Pope Nicholas V and Pope Paul II.
Before Pope Francis also Pious XI announced an extraordinary Jubilee on the occasion of the centenary anniversary of the Redemption. In his Bull Quod nuper the Holy Year is promulgated, glorifying the peace. Another extraordinary Holy Year was promulgated by Pope John Paul II in 1983 in order to celebrate the 1950 years since the Redemption carried out by Christ through his Death and Resurrection. Finally, Pope Benedict XVI announced the Paoline year, a special jubilee year dedicated to the Apostle Paul that lasted from 28th June 2008 to 29th June 2009.
The opening of the Holy Door
One of the most significant event of the Holy Year is the opening of the Holy Door. It is a normally sealed door that is opened only during the Jubilee. All the Papal Major Basilicas have the Holy Door: the Saint Peter's Basilica, the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran, the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls and the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. The ritual involves a strong symbolical meaning: the pilgrims are offered the possibility of a great path towards the salvation.

One of the most significant event of the Holy Year is the opening of the Holy Door. It is a normally sealed door that is opened only during the Jubilee. All the Papal Major Basilicas have the Holy Door: the Saint Peter's Basilica, the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran, the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls and the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore. The ritual involves a strong symbolical meaning: the pilgrims are offered the possibility of a great path towards the salvation.

The most simple and direct means with which popular piety has taught us to invoke the mercy of God through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary is by praying the Rosary. For this reason, every evening during the jubilee year the Rosary will be recited at 18:00 in front of the Statue of Saint Peter in Saint Peter's Square. It will be led by various parishes in Rome, Religious Institutes and Confraternities. We will let ourselves be led - as pilgrims- by the maternal gaze of her who was first to experience the mercy of the Father "turning towards the lowliness of his handmaid".

The attention of this Holy Year, therefore, will be turned in a particular way toward the Mother of Mercy. To arrive at the tenderness of the Father, we pass through the gaze and maternal love of Mary. In number 24 of the Bull Misericordiae Vultus the Pope says, "No one has penetrated the profound mystery of the incarnation like Mary. Her entire life was patterned after the presence of mercy made flesh. The Mother of the Crucified and Risen One has entered the sanctuary of divine mercy because she participated intimately in the mystery of His love."

With respect to recent press releases, the Organizing Secretariat for the Jubilee of Mercy issues the following clarifications:

1. To permit pilgrims to carry out a brief pilgrimage to the Holy Door of the Saint Peter's Basilica, there will be a walking path reserved for them.  It will begin at Castel Sant'Angelo and finish at the Holy Door, passing through Via Della Conciliazione, Piazza Pio XII and Saint Peter's Square.  Since a large number of pilgrims is anticipated, it is strongly recommended that pilgrims register their arrival in Rome and the possible times at which they wish to make their pilgrimage.  

2. The passage through the Holy Door can accommodate a limited number of pilgrims.  To avoid unnecessary delays and to ensure that the pilgrimage remains prayerful, it is important, especially for organized groups, to contact the Organizational Secretariat in advance.  This can be done through the official Jubilee web site (www.im.va), on the page "Registration for Pilgrims," which will be activated in October.  

3. Once pilgrims are registered on the web site, in addition to being able to sign up for the major events, they will be able to choose the date and approximate time of their pilgrimage to the Holy Door of Saint Peter's.  

4. The Organizational Secretariat will confirm the request for the pilgrimage and indicate the best time to arrive at the beginning of the protected pathway.  This system will reduce delays to the minimum, and help to guarantee an atmosphere of prayer and welcome during the pilgrimage on foot to the Holy Door.

5. Groups or single pilgrims may register for the pilgrimage.  It is recommended that even small informal groups or families complete a single registration, in order to be certain that they can make the pilgrimage together at the same time. 

6. For additional information, or for pilgrims who may not have registered ahead of time on the web site, we invite you to visit the Welcome Center for Pilgrims at Via Della Conciliazione, 7, which will be open as soon as possible. Volunteers there will help you to arrange your pilgrimage at the best possible time.  

7. The pilgrimage to the Holy Doors at the other Papal Basilicas of Rome (Saint John Lateran, Saint Mary Major, and Saint Paul Outside the Walls) will not be subject to registration.  

Pilgrims with disabilities and other particular medical needs

All four of the Papal Basilicas, in addition to being equipped with a First Aid station, will be staffed by volunteers at the service of pilgrims.  Some of these volunteers will be appointed to help disabled persons.

To assist the Italian health authorities, it is useful to indicate particular medical needs (dialysis, oxygen, etc.) when you register. 

On October 2, the organizing committee for the Jubilee for Pilgrimage Workers and Supporters met to discuss the final details regarding the program of events for this international meeting of parish priests, shrine/sanctuary rectors and personnel, and all involved in pilgrimages, which is to be held in Rome on January 19-21, 2016. The conferences are entitled: Pilgrims in the Footsteps of Jesus: The Shrine as an Experience of Mercy and From the Shrine to the Parish: The Pilgrimage as an Integral Part of Pastoral Work in Parishes. These conferences will be given in various churches of Rome according to language groups (Italian, Spanish, French, and English). There will also be catecheses given in those four languages on the theme of mercy. On the final morning of the gathering, participants will make their pilgrimage through the Holy Door of St. Peter’s Basilica and will then arrive at the Paul VI Hall, in the Vatican City State, for an audience with the Holy Father.

The selection of this international gathering as the first major event of the Holy Year will symbolically serve to highlight that this Jubilee of Mercy is a true pilgrimage and should be lived as such by all.
