Seeking Faith


The New Evangelization and the Year of Faith

Pope Benedict has declared, starting on October 11, 2012, and ending November 23, 2013, to be the Year of Faith. If you find yourself asking, like I did, “But isn’t every year a year of faith?” then think more deeply. We Catholics are challenged to really reflect not only on what we believe (the tenets of the Creed, for example), but also, and perhaps most difficult, how we might be called to change our behaviors accordingly. If we hope to share the faith with the next generation who, though spiritually hungry, might need to learn the faith in a new way, the time for searching our own hearts has come.
