Preparing for the Year of Faith

Randolph Air Force Base Chapel, San Antonio

"We want this Year to arouse in every believer the aspiration to profess the faith in fullness and with renewed conviction, with confidence and hope.

It will also be a good opportunity to intensify the celebration of the faith in the liturgy, especially in the Eucharist, which is 'the summit towards which the activity of the Church is directed; ... and also the source from which all its power flows.'

At the same time, we make it our prayer that believers' witness of life may grow in credibility. To rediscover the content of the faith that is professed, celebrated, lived and prayed, and to reflect on the act of faith, is a task that every believer must make his own, especially in the course of this Year."

From "Porta fidei," Pope Benedict XVI's Apostolic Letter
declaring the Year of Faith, made public Oct. 17, 2011.
The Year of Faith: Oct. 11, 2012 - Nov. 24, 2013
