Year of Faith Advent Retreat for New Evangelizers on Second Vatican Council

Pope Benedict XVI has called the Church to study the Catechism of the Catholic Church, “one of the most important fruits of the Second Vatican Council” during this Year of Faith (October 11, 2012 through November 24, 2012.) He is also calling us to study the sixteen documents of the Second Vatican Council “to help people understand that the texts bequeathed by the Council Fathers, in the words of Blessed John Paul II, ‘have lost nothing of their value or brilliance. They need to be read correctly, to be widely known and taken to heart as important and normative texts of the Magisterium, within the Church’s’ Tradition… I feel more than ever in duty bound to point to the Council as the great grace bestowed on the Church in the twentieth century: there we find a sure compass by which to take our bearings in the century now beginning.’ I would also like to emphasize strongly what I had occasion to say concerning the Council a few months after my election as Successor of Peter: ‘if we interpret and implement it guided by a right hermeneutic, it can be and can become increasingly powerful for the ever necessary renewal of the Church.’” (cf. Pope Benedict XVI: Porta Fidei, 5, 11).

To aid archdiocesan New Evangelizers striving to become better educated, enthused, and equipped for a fruitful and full implementation of the new evangelization, I am offering a bilingual Year of Faith New Evangelizers Advent Retreat on the Second Vatican Council in which we will discuss the four Dogmatic Constitutions: Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, Lumen gentium; Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation, Dei Verbum; Dogmatic Constitution on the Liturgy, Sacrosanctum concilium; andDogmatic Constitution on the Church in the Modern World, Gaudium et spes.
