“If you believe what you like in the gospels, and reject what you don’t like, it is not the gospel you believe, but yourself. Order your soul; reduce your wants; live in charity; associate in Christian community; obey the laws; trust in Providence.”
– Saint Augustine

The Extra-Ordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy: The Holy Door
“To acquire a Plenary Indulgence, it is necessary to perform the work to which the indulgence is attached (i.e. walking through the Holy Door) and to fulfill the following three conditions:
and to pray for the Holy Father.
It is further required that all attachment to sin, even venial sin, be absent.” (cf. Apostolic Penitentiary, Prot. N. 39/05/I ) The Holy Father, Francis, has granted a Plenary Indulgence to all the faithful who perform the act of walking through the Holy Door and fulfilling the aforementioned three requirements during the Year of Mercy.
Please join the Diocese of Columbus in this marvelous act of Mercy given to us by Our Heavenly Father.
