divine mercy jesusSummary of the Requirements for the Holy Door Indulgence:

  1. Pass through the Jubilee Holy Door
  2. Make of profession of faith (Nicene or Apostle’s Creed)
  3. Make a short reflection on mercy
  4. Sacramental confession, reception of the Holy Eucharist, and prayer for the Pope’s intentions.

There is so much depth to this Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy

From Our Holy Father: ” It is indeed my wish that the Jubilee be a living experience of the closeness of the Father, whose tenderness is almost tangible, so that the faith of every believer may be strengthened and thus testimony to it be ever more effective.”

Excerpt from the letter of Pope Francis on the Extraordinary Year of Mercy:

To experience and obtain the Indulgence, the faithful are called to make a brief pilgrimage to the Holy Door,   open in every Cathedral or in the churches designated by the Diocesan Bishop, and in the four Papal Basilicas in Rome, as a sign of the deep desire for true conversion. Likewise, I dispose that the Indulgence may be obtained in the Shrines in which the Door of Mercy is open and in the churches which traditionally are identified as Jubilee Churches. It is important that this moment be linked, first and foremost, to the Sacrament of Reconciliation and to the celebration of the Holy Eucharist with a reflection on mercy. It will be necessary to accompany these celebrations with the profession of faith and with prayer for me and for the intentions that I bear in my heart for the good of the Church and of the entire world.
