We were blessed to spend a time of prayer and penance with Padre Umile and the Franciscan Friars in Sicily at a very austere monastery built in the 15th century. It was a rigorous schedule getting up every night from 1am to 2am for a Holy Hour and the Liturgy of the Hours, and a blessed experience to reflect on the love of Christ coming to us as man. On our return we were able to pray at the Holy Doors in Rome for you and all those we have promised to pray for! We brought you with us in prayer! We encourage you to make a visit to the Holy Doors whether in Rome or close to home. During the Year of Mercy you can obtain a plenary indulgence by visiting the Holy Doors at a church designated in your Diocese. Pope Francis is extending the graces of the Year of Mercy to many churches throughout the world.
