Pope Benedict XVI has dedicated the year from October 6, 1212---November 24, 1213 to FAITH.
See where I'm coming from?
This morning at Mass, I learned that this October is the 50th anniversary of the Second Vatican Council. During this Year of Faith, Catholics are asked to study and reflect on the documents of Vatican II and the catechism. Let us pray, that the fruits of this study will deepen everyone's faith.
The upcoming Year of Faith is a “summons to an authentic and renewed conversion to the Lord, the One Savior of the world” (Porta Fidei 6). In other words, the Year of Faith is an opportunity for Catholics to experience a conversion – to turn back to Jesus and enter into a deeper relationship with him. The “door of faith” is opened at one’s baptism, but during this year Catholics are called to open it again, walk through it and rediscover and renew their relationship with Christ and his Church.
