Pope Benedict XVI has declared this coming October the beginning of the Year of Faith.
Here is the Popes apostolic letter http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/be...-fidei_en.html
Here is a video from rome reports on it.... http://www.romereports.com/palio/vat...lish-7118.html
Note with pastoral recommendations for the Year of Faith
The beginning of the Year of Faith coincides with the anniversaries of two great events which have marked the life of the Church in our days: the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council, called by Blessed Pope John XXIII (11 October 1962), and the twentieth of the promulgation of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, given to the Church by Blessed Pope John Paul II (11 October 1992).
In these links it speaks about our ever growing knowledge and deeper understanding of faith. I am thinking some BIG things are going to come about during this year in our growth in knowledge of Jesus Christ.
It was said in the rome reports video events will cover everything from Confirmation students to devoted Marians.
I am excited to see what this Year of Faith will hold!
"You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart,
and with all your soul,
and with all your strength,
and with all your mind;
and your neighbor as yourself.
The Mother of God cannot lead us anywhere except to the Lord Jesus."
(St. Maximilian Kolbe)
