And so begins the Year of Faith!
“Faith grows when it is lived as an experience of LOVE received and when it is communicated as an experience of grace and JOY! – Pope Benedict XVI in his “Letter on the Year of Faith”
Mrs. Genie Summers, podcaster and founder of FMC writes of the Year of Faith; ” I woke up a couple of days ago, super “pumped up” about the Year of Faith. I shared on the podcast that the world around us has so many bleak things on the horizon, but I believe that the Year of Faith is going to have a bigger impact on the world we live in than presidential elections in the United States. It is our opportunity to enter into the New Evangelization and reach out to our Catholic brothers and sisters (our listeners) with the message of the Gospel.”
