Today marks such a special occasion for the Church. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council and the 20th anniversary of the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, Pope Benedict XVI has begun today a Year of Faith, in which we are called to a deeper renewal of our commitment to Jesus Christ.
There are many resources out there. Please see the following:

The Institute of Catholic Culture is dedicated to the New Evangelization, and we are tremendously excited about this Year of Faith. In response, we are initiating the following initiatives:
1. We will focus especially on an authentic and orthodox interpretation of the documents of Vatican II, including series on Dei Verbum, Dignitatis Humanae, and Lumen Gentium.
2. We will offer an in-depth, 13-part series on the Nicene Creed, entitled “Credo in Unum Deum,” with Fr. Paul Scalia, one of our most popular scholars to present at the Institute. This series begins tonight with Fr. Scalia’s lecture on “Creed or Chaos: An Introduction to the True Faith.” Watch online at 7:30 p.m. – click here. Or, if you can’t watch live, you can catch the video and audio archives after the event here.
3. We are introducing a new discipline track in our curriculum – Catholic Political Theory. We will launch this initiative on Tuesday, October 30, a week before the presidential election, with a lecture entitled “Concepts of Corruption: Plato’s Critique of Government.” For more information, click here.
4. We will be leading a pilgrimage to the Holy Land in 2013! View our pilgrimage page for more information.
Join us this year for these great programs – you cannot love what you do not know!
