Year of Faith
Pope Benedict XVI has proclaimed a Year of Faith to run from October 11, 2012 through November 24, 2013. This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the Opening of the Second Vatican Council and the 20th Anniversary of the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The goals of the year are to deepen our personal faith and to evangelize the world with the good news of Jesus Christ.
Year of Faith Prayer
for the Archdiocese of Indianapolis
Heavenly Father, in this Year of Faith draw us closer to You through your Son, our Lord Jesus Christ. Send your Spirit to guide our reflection on Holy Scripture and Sacred Tradition.
May our prayerful discussion, sharing and service to others bear witness to the power and beauty of the Faith. Through our lives, may we attract others to know you and to live in full communion with your one, holy, Catholic and apostolic Church.
Grant this, loving Father, in this Year of Faith for your Church in the Archdiocese of Indianapolis and throughout the world.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever.
