During the Jubilee year, the programme for which was presented today in a press conference held in the Vatican, Plenary Indulgence will not only be for the faithful who pass
through the Holy Door of the Sanctuary of the Holy House of Loreto, but, in accordance with the methods that will be issued by the Vatican and the respective dioceses, also for those visiting the chapels of the civil airports where a statue of the Virgin Mary of Loreto will be placed as part of a tour.
The Pontifical Delegation has chosen Milan Bergamo Airport as one of the locations destined to play host to the Virgin Mary of Loreto, from 2 to 23 June 2020.
