Pope explains the Creed during General Audience on first cathechesis on the Year of Faith

2012-10-17

"Dear Brothers and Sisters, Today’s Audience introduces a new series of catecheses meant to accompany the Church’s celebration of the Year of Faith, which marks the fiftieth anniversary of the opening of the Second Vatican Council.  The Year of Faith invites us to renewed enthusiasm for the gift of our belief in Jesus Christ.  Jesus, the Son of God, and shows us the ultimate meaning of our human existence.
Faith transforms our lives, enabling us to know and love the God who created us, to live freely in accordance with his will, and to cooperate in building a truly humane and fraternal society. 

Our catecheses will thus deal with the central truths of the faith as expressed in the words of the Apostles’ Creed.  May the Year of Faith lead all believers to a fuller knowledge of the mystery of Christ and a deeper participation in the life of his Body, the Church!

I offer a warm welcome to the Muslim and Catholic study group from the Diocese of Broken Bay in Australia.  I also greet the representatives of the Jewish Federation of North America and the participants in the European Conference of the American Bankruptcy Institute.  I thank the Cathedral Choir from Oslo and the Hawaiian dancers for their performances.  Upon all the English-speaking visitors present, including those from England, Scotland, Ireland, Jersey, Norway, Australia, Indonesia, Japan, the Philippines, Singapore, Canada and the United States, I invoke God’s abundant blessing."
