Spirit Catholic Radio Celebrates the Year of Faith
The Year of Faith--which began October 2012 through November 24, 2013--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 “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.
On this page you will find a variety of resources to help you renew you baptismal call by living out the everyday moments of their lives with faith, hope and love.
