On Friday, April 1, all Frassati Catholic students, faculty, and staff made a pilgrimage to St. Ignatius Loyola Catholic Church in Spring, TX, to walk through the Holy Doors of Mercy.
The Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston states, "Pope Francis has declared a Jubilee Year of Mercy to allow us us to focus on and deepen our gratitude for the loving mercy of God. As with all jubilee years, the Year of Mercy will include the use of a Holy Door, a specially designated entrance that has spiritual and symbolic meaning for Catholics. In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, passing through a Holy Door is part of the pilgrimage that all Catholics are encouraged to make, whether during a trip to Rome or a trip to the cathedrals or specially designated churches in their own dioceses. These pilgrimages come with special graces, and they allow each of us to share in the many blessings of the Holy Year."
Pope Francis' tweet on April 1 was a perfect reminder for the school community in this Year of Mercy: "Passing through the Holy Door, let us put our trust in God's grace, which can change our lives." Pope Francis also stated in the document, Misericordiae Vultus, "By crossing the threshold of the Holy Door, we will find the strength to embrace God's mercy and dedicate ourselves to being merciful with others as the Father has been with us."
