Jubilee 2025: A Year of Grace and Hope

Simple Booking loading...

The Jubilee of 2025 will be the twenty-fifth ordinary Jubilee in the history of the Catholic Church and the second during Pope Francis’ pontificate. This event, eagerly anticipated by faithful worldwide, is a special year of grace during which the Catholic Church offers believers the chance to obtain a plenary indulgence, that is, the remission of sins for themselves or for their deceased loved ones.

The Motto and Logo of Jubilee 2025

The official motto of the Jubilee of 2025 is “Pilgrims of Hope.” This motto was personally chosen by Pope Francis to represent the central theme of the Jubilee year: hope. According to the Pope, this Jubilee should foster the rebuilding of an atmosphere of hope and trust, symbolizing a rebirth that we all urgently feel the need for.

The Jubilee logo, chosen through an international competition, was designed by Giacomo Travisani. The logo depicts people of every color, nationality, and culture moving toward the future, driven by the wind of hope represented by the cross of Christ.

The Holy Door and the Papal Basilicas

The most well-known and evocative rite of the Jubilee is the opening of the Holy Door, marking the beginning of the Jubilee year. The four main Holy Doors are located in Rome’s major basilicas: St. Peter’s, St. John Lateran, St. Paul Outside the Walls, and St. Mary Major. The first Holy Door to be opened is that of St. Peter’s Basilica, followed by the others in the ensuing days. The doors remain open throughout the Jubilee year and are re-sealed at the end.

The Calendar of Events for Jubilee 2025

The Jubilee will officially begin with the opening of the Holy Door of St. Peter’s Basilica on December 24, 2024. Key events include the Jubilee of the World of Communication on January 24, 2025, the Jubilee of the Armed Forces, Police, and Security on February 8, 2025, and the Jubilee of Artists on February 16, 2025.

Preparations and Organization

The organization of the Jubilee is entrusted to the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization, chaired by Archbishop Rino Fisichella.
