Open wide the Holy Door to, for and of Christ!

    In today's editorial, we preview the great event to take place this Friday evening when the Holy Father officially ushers in the grand Jubilee Year 2000 by passing the threshold of the Holy Door, located in the Moderno Atrium of St. Peter's Basilica. He will open the massive aperture with three raps of his hand and gently the huge iron doors will swing open and he, along with the universal Church, will carry our pilgrimage - begun three years ago - into this highly significant Jubilee year. As the pilgrim of pilgrims the Vicar of Christ will fulfill a promise he made to lead us all into the new millennium. In our commentary we give the background to the ritual and the meaning of the Holy Door and all that it represents as well as the pilgrimage this "Pilgrim Pope" will undertake in walking in Our Lord's footsteps in March.
