POPE FRANCIS grants Laurentian Jubilee in order to mark the 100th anniversary of the declaration of Our Lady of Loreto as the patron all people travelling by airplane.
The jubilee year will open on December 8 (feast day celebrating the Immaculate Conception) and will conclude on December 10, 2020 (Holy house’s transfer anniversary).
On March 24, 1920, Pope Benedict XV named Our Lady of Loreto “the main patron saint of aviators before God” thus meeting the desires of many airplane pilots who were military veterans of the First World War.
The Laurentian Jubilee will be addressed not only to the military pilots (Italian air force academy) but also to all civil people travelling by plane and all those who will visit the Holy House of Loreto as pilgrims.
The Vatican secretary of State, cardinal Pietro Parolin, will open the holy door on december 8, 2019.
