Ten Ways to Celebrate the Year of Faith

With his Apostolic Letter of October 11, 2-11, Porta Fidei, Pope Benedict XVI declared that a Year of Faith would begin on October 11, 2012, and conclude on November 24, 2013. The first day of the Year of Faith marks the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council and the twentieth anniversary of the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Both of those events are milestones for the world’s Catholics, and so it’s beautiful that our Holy Father chose to commemorate them with an entire year devoted to giving us opportunity to increase our knowledge of, and deepen, our Catholic faith.
