Rome prepares the Extraordinary Jubilee

After the surprise announcement of Pope Francis, Rome prepares for the Jubilee Extraordinary devoted entirely to the mercy, which will begin on December 8 and will accompany the faithful for a whole year.

On March 23, the Pope Bergoglio announced the new Jubilee to meet a requirement of the Catholic Church of having God close to accompany her to what turns out to be a sea change.

The tradition continues 715 years and is becoming more important in a period of change that are likely to affect in too significant for humanity, especially for young people who are likely to progress without a strong leader able to make them safe.

The official ceremony will start on December 8 with the official ceremony: the opening of the Holy Door of St. Peter's Basilica to begin a busy year which will see its conclusion on November 20, 2016.

To experience the best of the event were created four paths to all the faithful who want to live the most significant for the Catholic Church fully enjoying the jubilee year.

The First Papal Way
To retrace the steps of the main routes used for centuries by the popes during their election. The route starts from the Basilica of St. John Lateran to get to St. Peter's Basilica, past the church of San Salvatore in Lauro considered the national church of the Marches.

The Second Papal Way
Always tie the Basilica of San Giovanni with the main one, providing a detour different, the true Church of Santa Maria in Valicella which houses a miraculous image of Our Lady in a fresco of the fourteenth century.

The Way of the Pilgrim
Born thinking to traditional paths of pilgrims expected departure from St. John leading the faithful to the Basilica Main and through the Church of the Holy Trinity of the Pilgrims.

The Mariano's Way
It leads from the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore to Basilica of San Pietro touching, between its intermediate stages, the Mamertine prison.
