On April 11, 2015, Pope Francis communicated with a Bull – Misericordiae Vultus – that on December 8, 2015 the extraordinary Jubilee will start. The Holy Year is going to finish the day of Christ the King, November 20, 2015.
According to the Catholic Church the Jubilee event represents a year of conversion and penitence in which sins are forgiven. Pope Francis is going to make this Jubilee 2015 start in the name of Mercy. In particular, he wonders << how the Church can make clearer its mission of being witness of Mercy >> also and especially during a period of great changes just like the current one.
The start of the Holy Year will take place with the opening of the Holy Door of the S. Peter's Basilica.
The others basilicas' doors will be open over the next few days.
A considerable number of believers and pilgrims is expected for a lot of events. In particular, there will be the gathering of young people aged between 13 and 16 years on April 24, the meetings with volunteering, sick people and priests. The Pope has also announced that will try to involve prisoners in a Mass at the Holy See. For this, Vatican informs that negotiations with the Italian government will start soon, and they will also discuss and approve the precautionary rules to be taken concerning the attack risks.
On the occasion of the Jubilee of Rome 2015 also the Termini station will undergo structural changes to guarantee more viability and more practicability of the three access roads to the station: Via Giolitti, Via Enrico de Nicola and Via Marsala.
More pedestrian routes will be enabled to improve the transit of citizens and pilgrims. Pavements and pedestrian crossings will be widely reviewed and enlarged. The attention will be focused on the removal of architectural barriers to help the disabled to take a tour of Rome in complete safety.
