Pope Announces Year of Faith for Catholics Worldwide and Ties Faith to Marriage

 

This week Pope Benedict initiated a year of faith for Catholics around the world and linked the challenges facing marriage and faith:

"...The 85-year-old head of the Roman Catholic Church, who was an expert at the Council known as "Vatican II" and one of its most reformist voices, has made the new evangelism a centrepiece of his papacy since being elected in 2005.

...Benedict stressed that marriage and family must be at the centre of the new evangelism, as there was "an obvious link between the crisis of the faith and the crisis of marriage". -- AFP
