In the Jubilee Year of Mercy, the Catholic Church in the Holy Land will open the Holy Doors in four churches.
The Jubilee Year of Mercy will begin on December 8, with the opening of the Holy Door in the St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican.
In addition to the opening of the Holy Doors in Rome, Pope Francis has granted to bishops around the world the ability to designate in their diocese, a Church or a Shrine, in which the Door of Mercy will be open, to ensure that all the faithful participate in this event,
Here in the Holy Land, the following churches will open the Doors of Mercy:
the Basilica of Gethsemane in Jerusalem, the Church of St. Catherine in Bethlehem, the Basilica of the Annunciation Nazareth and in the Sanctuary of the Madonna del Monte, in Anjara, Jordan.
