In August 1294, Pope Celestine V° issued a papal edict guaranteeing a plenary and universal indulgence. In the story, the first Jubilee in the occasion was opened the Holy Door of the Basilica of Collemaggio (Aquila). On this occasion, Jubilee, the so-called Edict of Forgiveness, was able to obtain forgiveness entering the basilica through the Holy Door, repented, and confessed.
Pope Boniface VIII introduced the Holy Year in 1300, and this can be considered the first official Jubilee in history.
In the Hebrew tradition, the Jubilee Year is celebrated every 50 years and was meant to restore equality among the Israelites. These families had lost their property, freedom, and a reminder for the rich, who once were slaves. According to the Law of Israel, the’ Justice consisted above all in protecting the weak’ (St. John Paul II, Tertio millennial Adveniente 13).
The Catholic traditions of the Holy Year began with Pope Boniface VIII in 1300. Originally Boniface VIII° had planned a Jubilee every century, but from 1475 onwards, to allow generation by generation to experience at least one Holy Year – the Jubilee was to be celebrated every 25 years.
Until now, 26 Jubilees ordinary have been celebrated and 3 Jubilees (Holy Year) extraordinary Holy Years celebrated during the previous century.
All are concentrated to an indulgence, a general pardon for all, and the chance to renew one’s relationship with God and neighbor, a renewed commitment to Christian witness.
