Year of Faith

October 11 is the start of the Year of Faith that the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI wrote to us about last year.  This start coincides with the 20th anniversary of the new Catechism of the Catholic Church (commissioned by Bl. Pope John Paul II) and the 50th anniversary of the start of Vatican Council II.  

Read the Holy Father's "Door of Faith", a letter that he wrote to tell us of this year of faith, and where he also mentions how we can live this year of the faith better:  a time of witnessing for the Church and of better living charity.

One of the things we can do is to read the Catechism of the Catholic Church, to not only know more about our faith, but to increase and bring others to love our faith.  You can pick up the Catechism and have a reading plan for it for the duration of the year of faith, or, you can subscribe to Read the Catechism in a Year via  It's been only just a day, so go on subscribe.

Also, pray for the proceedings of the Synod of Bishops XIII ORDINARY GENERAL ASSEMBLY (7-28 OCTOBER 2012)"Nova evangelizatio ad christianam fidem tradendam - The New Evangelization for the Transmission of the Christian Faith" now on-going.
