"It's hard to choose what will be the most important event of this year because there are many events that will be very important because they touch different aspects of faith and different categories of people.”

To order the new evangelization, the Congregation for Divine Worship approved a special Mass, but as of now it's only in Latin and Italian, but by October translations will be available in English, Spanish and German.

This will be the logo for the Year of the Faith and its website. The image will be this icon of Christ of Cefalu and the prayer will be the Lord's Creed.

"It is a Christ known throughout the world, one of the most beautiful representations. It is a mosaic dating from the twelfth century. We chose it as the symbol of faith because it is the expression of the unity of all believers.”

There will also be other important anniversaries during the Year of Faith, such as the 50 year mark since the opening of Vatican II and 20th anniversary of the Catechism published by the Catholic Church.

An exhibition is also scheduled to take place at Castel Sant'Angelo and a big concert in St. Peter's Square. These series of events are meant to bring the new evangelization in the Year of Faith to every corner of the world.
