Year of Faith - Overview

Year of Faith

Each week, we are going to share with you a new idea that you can do to help you rediscover your faith. These are from the booklet by Ignatius Press entitled, Companion to Faith. MUST SEE FILM: “The Gospel of John” (PG) (2003). “There is a quiet exuberance, calm authority and at times passionate anger in Henry Ian Cusick’s portrayal of Jesus that conveys something of the awesome mystery of Jesus’ humanity being united to the divinity of the Son of God.” This movie is available at your local Catholic gift shops and on Amazon.com “The Year of Faith” is intended to contribute to a renewed conversion to the Lord Jesus and to the rediscovery of faith, so that the members of the church will be credible and joy-filled witnesses to the risen Lord in the world of today-capable of leading those may people who are seeking it to the ‘door of faith.’(Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, “Note with Pastoral Recommendations for the year of Faith”)

MUST READ BOOKS: Jesus of Nazareth vols I, II, & III, by Pope Benedict XVI (Ignatius Press) these books are available at the Batesville Deanery Resource Center, your local Catholic gift shops, and on Amazon.com

NEW: Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives (vol III)

“The momentous third and final volume in the Pope's international bestselling Jesus of Nazareth series details the stories of Jesus' infancy and boyhood, and how they are relevant today in the modern world.

"I can at last consign to the reader the long promised little book on the narratives of Jesus' childhood . . . Here I have sought to interpret, in dialogue with exegetes of the past and of the present, what Matthew and Luke recount at the beginning of their Gospels about the infancy of Jesus."
- Pope Benedict XVI
