Delo: All Paths Lead to Rome Again
Ljubljana, 27 December - PRESS/CHATOLIC/CURCH
With the Holy Door, absolution, indulgences and pilgrimages, the Jubilee Holy Year is actually a religious holiday, it is something related to the mystery of faith, of all Christian faiths, rather than just the Roman Catholic Church. It has got nothing to do with tradesmen and caterers; nor politicians announcing themselves in Rome from everywhere not in order to get absolved from their sins, but rather to collect future votes from religious voters. The Church too will try to win votes with the jubilee, from that aspect the Holy Year will be more than just a religious ceremony, absolution from sins and - considering mea culpa announced by the pope - repentance for the sins done by the Church over the last two millennia, Delo writes on Monday.
