Pope entrusts preparation for the 2025 Jubilee to Archbishop Rino Fisichella


The next Holy Year, which will take place in 2025, will be coordinated by the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization.

“The Holy Father Francis entrusted the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization to coordinate, on the part of the Holy See, the preparation for the Holy Year 2025”, reads the communiqué from the Press Room of the Holy See.

The document reports that “in recent days the president of the same council, Archbishop Rino Fisichella, met with the superiors of the Secretariat of State, the Administration of Patrimony of the Apostolic See and the Secretariat for the Economy.”

The 2025 Jubilee will be the 27th ordinary Jubilee in the history of the Church. The first was proclaimed by Boniface VIII in 1300.

According to the Vatican news portal, among the pilgrims who arrived in Rome for this first Jubilee were Dante, Cimabue, Giotto, Carlo di Valois, brother of the King of France, with his wife Catherine.

Thought to be celebrated every hundred years, Clement VI determined in 1350 to hold them every 50 years. Paul II, with a Bull of 1470, established that the Jubilee should be held every 25 years.

The Jubilee is a year of reconciliation and conversion, of solidarity and commitment to justice at the service of God and of our brothers and sisters, and it grants the faithful a Plenary Indulgence for themselves or for the deceased.

The last Jubilee was the extraordinary Holy Year dedicated to Mercy, summoned by Francis with the Bull Misericordiae Vultus. Coordination was also entrusted to D. Fisichella and took place from November 29, 2015 to November 20, 2016.
