As you may be aware, Pope Benedict XVI has invited the Catholic Church throughout the world to engage in a Year of Faith starting on 11 October.
The Holy Father tells us that his overall objective is that, through this Year of Faith, we may ‘rediscover the joy of believing and the enthusiasm for communicating the faith’.
In particular he hopes that we will come to a renewed relationship with Jesus.
This Year of Faith marks the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council which shapes the life of the Church.
Here Winston Casaclang, who works in the supporter relations department of CAFOD, shares his reflections on how his faith motivates him to work for CAFOD.
