A 13.5-month Year-long Love Story. Pope Calls Christians to Live Year of Faith With Hearts and Lips By Kevin M. Clarke
SAN DIEGO, California, NOV. 10, 2011 (Zenit.org).- Well, we knew after his encyclicals on love and on hope -- "Deus Caritas Est" and "Spe Salvi" -- that something was coming with regard to faith. But who could have foreseen that we would be given a whole year? And that's exactly what Catholics throughout the world will have, says Benedict XVI in "Porta Fidei." The "year" itself will begin Oct. 11, 2012, and continue until Nov. 24, 2013. A 13.5-month year! Is it not great to be Catholic?
