"And since it is becoming that holy things be administered in a holy manner, and of all things this sacrifice is the most holy, the Catholic Church, to the end that it might be worthily and reverently offered and received, instituted many centuries ago the holy canon, which is so free from error that it contains nothing that does not in the highest degree savor of a certain holiness and piety and raise up to God the minds of those who offer."
— Council of Trent (1562)

Videos • Popes open the Holy Door
published 10 December 2015 by Andrew Leung

OPE FRANCIS opened the Holy Door at St. Peter’s Basilica on Tuesday to begin the Jubilee Year of Mercy. Here are two old videos of the Opening of the Holy Door. The first one was taken in 1950, before the Vatican II. Pope Pius XII opened the Holy Door to inaugurate the Holy Year.

And the second one was taken when Pope Paul VI opened the Holy Door in 1975, after the Vatican II. Notice that he almost got hit in the head by the cement falling off the door as it was being opened.
