Pope closes Holy Door and officially ends Year of Mercy

2016-11-20

On Sunday morning, November 20, Pope Francis has officially closed the Holy Door of St. Peter's Basilica, thus concluding the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy. 

This Jubilee Year was the first one in history to be launched by two pontiffs, both Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI.

This Sunday's Mass is also a rare occasion due to the 17 new cardinals who are presiding on the altar with Pope Francis. 

While "Mercy” was the theme for the year, "Compassionate like the Father,” was the motto. The year began on December 8, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception and is ending on the Solemnity of Christ the King.
