What does the Year of Faith hold in store for you?
On October 11, 2012, Pope Benedict XVI proclaimed the beginning of the “Year of Faith”—a special period of time for Catholics everywhere to commit themselves to the Christian faith through study, prayer, and reflection.
To help you understand what the Year of Faith is all about, and to respond to the pope’s call to celebrate it more fully, Catholic Answers presents this Guide to the Year of Faith.
In it you will learn:
- Why the pope called for a Year of Faith and how he wants Catholics to observe it.
- Ways in which the universal Church and local churches will be marking the Year of Faith and encouraging fruitful participation in it.
- Recommendations for living out the Year of Faith within your parish, family, and community.
- Study resources for deepening and strengthening the gift of faith in your own soul, and for sharing it with others.
A gift from the Church to all believers, the Year of Faith is to be a time of reconversion to God through special consideration of the truths he has revealed to us.
Let this guide get you started on that path of reconversion, and lead you to reap the great graces the Year of Faith holds in store.
