Pope Francis leaves at the end of a ceremony where he formally announced an Extraordinary Jubilee year, in St. Peter's Basilica, at the Vatican, Saturday, April 11, 2015. Pope Francis has proclaimed a special year of efforts by the Catholic Church to be more merciful and less judgmental. At St. Peter's Basilica Saturday evening, he listened as a Vatican prelate read excerpts from a papal bull, or decree, in which Francis proclaimed an "Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy" Holy Year. The year begins on Dec. 8 with Francis' opening the normally closed Holy Door in the back of the basilica, and ends on Nov. 20, 2016. (AP Photo/Andreas Solaro, Pool)
