Year Of Faith October 11, 2012 – November 24, 2013
Pope Benedict XVI announced the Year of Faith in October 2011 in his apostolic letter Porta Fidei (“Door of Faith”). In it, he said the aim of the year is “to arouse in every believer the aspiration to profess the faith in fullness and with renewed conviction, with confidence and hope.”
The year will be held Oct 11, 2012-Nov. 24, 2013, in honor of the 50th anniversary of opening of the Second Vatican Council and the 20th year since the release of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
I invite everyone to take a Magnificat Year of Faith Companion, which contains scriptural reflections, essays, and meditations on faith, and articles on people of faith in scripture. May the Companion help guide us to profess the faith in fullness and usher in the New Evangelization.
