Do You Know about the Year of Faith?

As I write, a B16-designated Year of Faith begins in 1 Day, 19 hours and 40-some minutes according to the official countdown clock. At the crypt church at the Basilica of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C., at a Monday-morning Mass, one priest suggested this prayer for Thursday and beyond:

Lord God, if there is anything you want to teach me about how to live my live, let me be open to it.

Sounds about right!

    I also want to add a Christian version of the Litany of Tarski to my prayer:
    Lord, help me to believe that true things are true. Give me the courage to also believe not true things are not true. And give me the wisdom to discern the difference.

    I think a great idea would be to do a bible study for the Year of Faith. Fr. Mitch Pacwa has one. My friends and I are doing the Companion Journal to Teresa Tomeo & Cheryl Dickow’s Wrapped Up: Gods Ten Gifts for Women and Emmaus Road Press has some good onees too.
