Cork and Ross Pastoral Letter on Year of Faith

 The Year of Faith: Letter from Bishop John Buckley, Diocese of Cork and Ross

On the 11th of October 2012, Pope Benedict launched the Year of Faith in Rome. He said that it was his profound hope that this Year of Faith would strengthen our relationship with Jesus Christ, deepen our understanding of the faith and renew our commitment to share this gift with others.

The core of our faith is our relationship with Jesus Christ. Faith is a gift by which we are able to believe in Jesus Christ and his love for each and every one of us. Only in Him will we find the truth and the happiness that we are constantly searching for. The truth of our faith never ages. Ideologies come and go because they lack profound truth.
