HOLY DOORS — Rev. David Tumback and Bishop Donald Bolen of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Saskatoon walk through the Holy Doors that were blessed and opened at the Cathedral of the Holy Family Dec. 13. Designated doors of mercy were also opened earlier in the day at St. Paul’s Co-Cathedral in Saskatoon. For the Jubilee of Mercy, Pope Francis invited dioceses around the world to designate holy doors, following the example of opening Holy Doors at St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome to mark a jubilee. Throughout the year of mercy, the faithful are invited to pass through the Holy Doors as an act of pilgrim prayer, in conjunction with the sacrament of reconciliation, celebrating the eucharist, and praying for Pope Francis’ prayer intentions.
