The 50th Anniversary of the Opening of Vatican II

The Second Vatican Council began Oct. 11, 1962, and lasted for four years. It was a defining event for the Catholic Church in the 20th century, and yet, many Catholics are not familiar with the influence the Council continues to have on parish life or the documents that continue to guide the Church. Blessed John XXIII believed that God was leading the Church to discover new ways of teaching the truths of our faith that would better fit the “signs of our times.” During the Year of Faith, Pope Benedict challenges us to rediscover or learn about Vatican II and study the documents that were inspirational then and are still relevant today.

The official Vatican website for the Year of Faith has a link to the Vatican II documents, and Twenty-Third Publications offers web resources in English and Spanish.


United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

The Year of Faith declared by Pope Benedict XVI is a “summons to an authentic and renewed conversion to the Lord, the One Savior of the world” (Porta fidei 6). In other words, the Year of Faith is an opportunity for Catholics to experience a conversion – to turn back to Jesus and enter into a deeper relationship with him. The pope has described this conversion as opening the “door of faith” (see Acts 14:27). The “door of faith” is opened at one’s baptism, but during this year Catholics are called to open it again, walk through it and rediscover and renew their relationship with Christ and his Church.

The US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) website also offers many valuable resources to help you and your family rediscover your faith. Please visit the website often throughout the Year of Faith.

 


The Door of Faith is Always Open!

Catholics who participated in events connected with the 2012-2013 Year of Faith received a special indulgence, according to a decree issued by the Vatican on September 14, 2012.  Pope Benedict established the Year of Faith to run from Oct. 11, 2012, to Nov. 24, 2013.

Guidelines for Plenary Indulgences during the Year of Faith in the Diocese of Austin have been established. The guidelines are available in English and Spanish.

With September on the horizon, parish leaders are once again preparing for education and formation classes for adults, youth and children. The celebration of the Year of Faith continues with greater emphasis on the New Evangelization. We are still called to deepen our Catholic faith through prayer, celebration of the sacraments, and learning more about our faith. We remain called to go and share this with others. We must first deepen our relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church, and then invite others to join us.

This sacred time will provide Catholics locally and throughout the world a precious opportunity to celebrate, deepen and share the spiritual richness of our Catholic faith. 


A time to learn. A time to pray.

The Year of Faith began on October 11, 2012 and will end on November 24, 2013, the Solemnity of Christ the King. The Pope has chosen October 11, 2012 as the opening date because on this day two important anniversaries occur: the 50th anniversary of the opening of The Second Vatican Council and the 20th anniversary of the promulgation of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

We will provide links to other sites that will help you rediscover the content of the faith that is professed, celebrated, lived and prayed!

EWTN provides a beautiful treasury of prayers and devotions.

Listen to podcasts of the Divine Office - Liturgy of the Hours.

Enjoy podcasts by the Benedictine Sisters of Perpetual Adoration who sing the Liturgy of the Hours.

Catholic Apps provides reviews and recommendations for adding faith to your phone!

You are encouraged to read the catechism during the Year of Faith.   Subscribe to Flocknote and you'll also learn why the Catechism is one of the great treasures of our Church! Every morning you'll receive an email with everything you need to read for that day.

If you don't have time to read, listen to the Heiman brothers read and discuss the catechism.

For those Catholics with a sense of humor, you might want to listen to entertaining discussions by clergy about Catholic Stuff You Should Know.

One link is for Our Sunday Visitor, which has Year of Faith items available including books that can be used as the basis of any adult education study.
