Jubilee Door of Mercy

I planned on having more doors for this week, but the weather didn’t coöperate so only one. Pope Francis has declared this Church Year as the Jubilee Year of Mercy. In the Baltimore, Md. Archdiocese seven churches received the honor of having one door dedicated as a “Blessed Door”. One door at The Shrine of St Anthony in Ellicott City, a Franciscan Friary was one of the seven churches.

My photo is of Father Michael, OFM opening that door – in reality it is a gate into the central courtyard of the Friary.
