Excerpt from the pamphlet by Woodeene Koenig-Bricker
Periodically, the Church sets aside an entire year to encourage all of us to focus on some particular and important aspect of our Faith.This year, we are given an opportunity to honor one of the great saints and founders of the early Church — the Apostle Paul.
In order to commemorate the 2000th anniversary of his birth, Christians all over the world will celebrate “The Year of St. Paul” from June 28, 2008, to June 29, 2009.
As Pope Benedict XVI said in his announcement, this special “Pauline” year is an invitation to join with “The Apostle of the Gentiles, who dedicated himself to the spreading of the good news to all peoples, [and] spent himself for the unity and harmony of all Christians,” adding,“May he guide us and protect us in this bimillenary celebration, helping us to advance in the humble and sincere search for the full unity of all the members of the mystical body of Christ.”
This beautifully designed pamphlet captures concisely what the Year of St. Paul is all about:
