Opening the Door of Mercy in Boston

Yesterday the seminarians of Saint John's Seminary joined the seminarians of Pope Saint John XXIII and Redemptoris Mater Seminaries and the faithful of the Archdiocese of Boston for the opening of the Holy Door for the Jubilee Year of Mercy at Holy Cross Cathedral in Boston. Bishop Peter Uglietto, Vicar General for the Archdiocese of Boston, celebrated the Mass.

With this door, Cardinal O'Malley reflected, "we hope to facilitate an encounter with God, the Father of Mercy...[through] acts of charity towards one another, which...remind us of his goodness towards all people.”
