“Today as in the past, he sends us through the highways of the world to proclaim his Gospel to all the peoples of the earth (cf. Mt 28:19). Through his love, Jesus Christ attracts to himself the people of every generation: in every age he convokes the Church, entrusting her with the proclamation of the Gospel by a mandate that is ever new.
Today too, there is a need for stronger ecclesial commitment to new evangelization in order to rediscover the joy of believing and the enthusiasm for communicating the faith. In rediscovering his love day by day, the missionary commitment of believers attains force and vigour that can never fade away.
We want to celebrate this Year in a worthy and fruitful manner. Reflection on the faith will have to be intensified, so as to help all believers in Christ to acquire a more conscious and vigorous adherence to the Gospel, especially at a time of profound change such as humanity is currently experiencing.
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 [...] 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.” – Pope Benedict XVI
The goal of this campaign is to bring together great Catholic resources which help the community further their intentions with God, and in their faith. This ministries aim to provide tools and services to Catholics everywhere, which help “intensify the celebration of the faith in the liturgy,” and “to rediscover the content of the faith that is professed, celebrated, lived and prayed,” as proclaimed in the Pope’s Apostolic Letter.
This initiative is an idea of DivineOffice.org, a Catholic ministry supporting over 40,000 people praying The Liturgy of the Hours each day. We have teamed up with some of the best Catholic resources for our community members to follow during this Year of Faith. Learn more…
