In the Porziuncola of Assisi, a place Saint Francis loved particularly, it is possible to get the indulgence during the whole year of the Jubilee, until Novembre 2016.
This place is worldwide known for the Feast of the Forgiveness, which takes place every year on August 2nd.
Here, you can get the daily plenary indulgence since 1216: this year Francis obtained from Pope Onorio III the privilege of the indulgence for all the pilgrims who would go to the Porziuncola humbly repent and in prayer.
That’s one of the most common phrases of Saint Francis: “ I want to take you all to Paradise”. This year, on August 2nd, we will celebrate the 8th centenary of the Forgiveness of Assisi (800 years since its institution). Another Holy Door in the city of Assisi is the entrance door of the Cathedral of Saint Rufino. In this Jubilee Year of Mercy, Assisi, city of Peace, becomes a very special place thanks to the greatness of his son Francis and his spirituality.
Numerous initiatives are being organized in Assisi to celebrate the extraordinary Jubilee of Merci.
