  In our Holy Father Francis' own words.

"My thought first of all goes to all the faithful who, whether in individual Dioceses or as pilgrims to Rome, will experience the grace of the Jubilee. I wish that the Jubilee Indulgence may reach each one as a genuine experience of Godís mercy, which comes to meet each person in the Face of the Father who welcomes and forgives, forgetting completely the sin committed. " [Pope Francis]

  How is a Jubillee Year indulgence obtained?

This is the ordinary means (in our diocese) to experience and obtain the Jubilee Year Indulgence:

Provisions have been made by Pope Francis for those unable to visit a Holy Door Pilgramige site to receive the Jubilee Year Indulgence. See his Jubille Year of Mercy Indulgence letter.
