Pope Francis opens Holy Door to begin Jubilee of Mercy

Pope Francis opened the Holy Door at St. Peter's Basilica on Tuesday, marking the beginning of the Jubilee of Mercy — a special Holy Year — amid heightened security.

More than 10 million pilgrims are expected to pass through the bronze door, which is usually sealed, during the 12-month period. This jubilee calls on Catholics to reflect on the theme of mercy.
