As they entered the tomb they saw a young man dressed in a white robe sitting on the right side, and they were alarmed. <<“Do not be alarmed!” he said. “ You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene, who was crucified. He has risen! He is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter “He’s going ahead of you into Galilee; there you will see him, just as he told you”>>.

Francis made a surprise announcement during the homily of the Penance Service in St. Peter’s Basilica. Just while media all over the world is discussing and commenting on the first two years of the Argentinian Pope’s pontificate pouring out numbers and statistical data, Pope Francis is thinking ahead and announces an extraordinary Jubilee dedicated to
