What is the Year of Faith?

Open the door of faith!
Matthew E. Bunson, editor of The Catholic Answer magazine, writes in the March/April issue:
“The ‘door of faith’ (Acts 14:27) is always open for us, ushering us into the life of communion with God and offering entry into his Church. It is possible to cross that threshold when the word of God is proclaimed and the heart allows itself to be shaped by transforming grace.”
With those words, Pope Benedict XVI began his apostolic letter Porta Fidei that declared a “Year of Faith,” which began Oct. 11, 2012, and will conclude Nov. 24, 2013. In a homily delivered on the day he announced the Year of Faith, the pontiff proclaimed his hope that the yearlong celebration would encourage Catholics to deepen their faith and renew their commitment to sharing that faith with others while leading “men and women out of the desert they often are in and toward the place of life: friendship with Christ who gives us fullness of life.”
