The evocative rite of the opening of the Holy Door marks the beginning of the Jubilee Year, which will take place on 8 December 2019 to close on 10 December 2020. Passing the Holy Door means symbolically crossing the door of salvation. Crossing the threshold of the Holy Door means taking a step towards Christ, in the memory of Baptism, the day when everyone entered the Church’s family, thanks to the Spirit.
