What are the Holy Doors?

One of the central components of the Jubilee Year of Mercy is that the Holy Doors throughout the world will be opened during this Jubilee year.  When they are opened at the beginning of the year, "the Holy Door will become a Door of Mercy through which anyone who enters will experience the love of God who consoles, pardons, and instills hope".  All members of the faithful will have the opportunity to make a pilgrimage to a local Holy Door in the Diocese of Birmingham of Alabama during the Jubilee.  This pilgrimage is to be a journey of walking closer with God and discovering moments of grace and spiritual renewal.  These doors are symbols of God's mercy, open to welcome every one into the compassion of God's love that Christ proclaimed.
