Pope Benedict Announces “Year of Faith”

At the Council's general meeting on October 25, Fr. John Gordon reported that earlier this month Pope Benedict XVI announced a special Year of Faith beginning October 11, 2012.

In his Apostolic Letter, Porta Fidei ("Door of Faith"), given in Rome on October 11, 2011, the Holy Father called a special Year of Faith to begin on October 11, 2012, and continue through the Solemnity of Christ the King on November 24, 2013.  The 11th of October 2012 will mark the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council, as well as the 20th anniversary of the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

In his letter, Pope Benedict notes, "[The Year of Faith] will be a good opportunity to usher the whole Church into a time of particular reflection and rediscovery of the faith," and he hopes that this Year will "arouse in every believer the aspiration to profess the faith in fullness and with renewed conviction, with confidence and hope."

In the coming months, the Holy Family Knights of Columbus will discuss ways to take up the Holy Father's call to "profess the faith in fullness and with renewed conviction" during the Year of Faith.  Please keep an eye out for further announcements.
