Pope Francis has given the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization responsibility on coordinating the Holy See's preparations for the Holy Year 2025. In recent days the President of the Council, Archbishop Rino Fisichella, met with Superiors of the Secretariat of State, the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See (APSA) and the Secretariat for the Economy to discuss the upcoming jubilee.

In the Roman Catholic tradition, a Holy Year, or Jubilee is a great religious event. It traditionally marks a year of forgiveness of sins and also the punishment due to sin, a year of reconciliation between adversaries, a time of conversion and receiving the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Themes receiving special focus include: solidarity, hope, justice, commitment to serve God with joy and in peace with our brothers and sisters. A Jubilee year is above all the year of Christ, who brings life and grace to humanity.
