Other resources on Faith:
Jubilee of Mercy: Vatican Official Page
Here you can access videos, news highlights, Pope Francis's messages on Mercy, prayers, the official logo, and other resources. Check back frequently for the latest updates. Here you can also register to pass through the Holy Door of Saint Peter's Basilica this holy year in Rome if you are able to make the pilgrimage. According to Catholic teaching, walking through Holy Doors results in an remission from sin, when accompanied by prayer and repentance. (Note the doors of the Cathedral in Gary will also be opened as a Holy Door.)
