December 08, 2015 Pope Francis will open the Holy Door of St Peter in Saint Peter’s Basilica. The Door of St. Peter was shut for 2,000 years.
December 08, 2015 is also the Feast Day of the Immaculate Conception of Mother Mary.
Last March 2015, Pope Francis declared that from December 08, 2015 to November 20, 2016 is the Jubilee Year of Mercy.
The Jubilee is a time of joy. It is a time of remission of sins and universal pardon, having its origins in the Biblical book of Leviticus. A Jubilee Year is mentioned there, occurring every 50 years, on which occasion slaves and prisoners would be freed, debts would be forgiven and the mercies of God would be particularly manifest. As Pope Francis says, Christ Himself quoted Isaiah along these same, spiritualized, lines: “The Lord has anointed me to bring good tidings to the afflicted; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and freedom to those in captivity; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
“Christ suffers in current state unspeakable each, for me, for you, because HIS LOVE IS FOR EACH OF PERSONAL WAY, NOBODY CAN REPLACE THE RELATIONSHIP between the creature and his Creator, for this is that with the amazing violence of this instant CHRIST OUTSIDE HIS PAIN SO, AS YOU WILL SEE IN THIS DIVINE MANIFESTATION”.
