At certain times in the history of the Church, popes have called upon the faithful to dedicate themselves to deepening their understanding of a particular aspect of the faith. In 1967, Pope Paul VI announced a Year of Faith commemorating the
19th centenary of the martyrdom of Sts. Peter and Paul. The 1967 Year of Faith called upon the Church to recall the
supreme act of witness by these two saints so that their martyrdom might inspire the present day Church
to collectively and individually make a sincere profession of faith.
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.
