JAPAN -VATICAN - The Jubilee in Niigata, an "oasis of mercy" in modern Japan [AN]


The bishop, Msgr. Tarcisio Isao Kikuchi, opened the Holy Door along with dozens of priests and about 120 faithful. The Holy Year should “push the faithful to stop living in mutual distrust, learning to be sparks of hope for today’s world.” In the midst of wars, terrorism and natural disasters, “the Father’s mercy is an essential balm”.
