From the Diocesan Memorandum:
|Pope Benedict XVI has announced a Year of Faith in the Apostolic Letter, Porta Fidei, to begin on 11 October 2012, the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council and ending on the Solemnity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Universal King, on 24 November 2013. The starting date of 11 October 2012 also marks the twentieth anniversary of the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

Lynn sent this video in. I am not quite sure what the purpose if it is but found it very interesting especially since Fr. P is doing a book study on C. S. Lewis' "Screwtape Letters."
Pat sent this in: "This week EWTN is running a series on the Shroud of Turin on the series "Women of Grace." Today's program reviewed the history of the Shroud and how it got to Turin in 1578.
Some of the circumstantial evidence for its antiquity includes the fact that when the Shroud (which had been hidden for several hundred years) was re-discovered around 500 AD, art and mosaic images of Jesus dramatically changed from a youthful unbearded "Roman" face to the man with a beard that we universally now see.
The remaining 4 programs will be broadcast this week at 11:00 am and re-aired at 11:30 pm. The most up-to-date scientific information and theories will be explored."
Russ sent this video in. It was posted once before but worth a reposting as we enter into the thick of the election season.
On a lighter note: Frank sent this video in. It is just interesting - not really connected to the mission of this blog.
