Come On, Tell Us A Story!
Everyone has a story, including you!
To mark the Year of Faith, which extends from Oct. 11, 2012 through Nov. 24, 2013, we want to hear from you, dear reader.
• How have you come to your faith? Was it in childhood? Later in life?
• Was there a particular person who instilled faith in you? Was it a particular event?
• And how do you live out your faith in the Risen Lord?
During the next 13 months, we will share your stories on this website. Please send us your stories at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is the Year of Faith? In his Apostolic Letter titled Porta Fidei, Pope Benedict XVI called for a Year of Faith as a "summons to an authentic and renewed conversion to the Lord, the One Savior of the world." 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.
We look forward to hearing from you. Again, please send us your stories at email@example.com.
