JUBILEE YEAR 2025: “Pilgrims Of Hope,” The Motto For The Holy Year

Pope Francis has set in motion the preparations for the Jubilee Year 2025, which he believes “can contribute greatly to restoring a climate of hope and trust as a prelude to the renewal and rebirth that we so urgently desire” after two years of pandemic and suffering.

He chose “Pilgrims of Hope” as the motto for the Holy Year and entrusted Archbishop Rino Fisichella, the Head of the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of the New Evangelization, with the responsibility for organizing this event, which is hoped to bring millions of pilgrims from all over the world to Rome.

This is the second jubilee year convened by Pope Francis. But unlike the extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy in 2015, the forthcoming one will be an ordinary jubilee, which takes place every 25 years.
