"There will be an important concert held on June 22nd. For the first time, a classical concert will be held in St. Peter's Square and it's open to the public. Everyone is invited, so they can enjoy the beauty of music.”

Part of the Year of Faith is emphasizing how culture, art and music can inspire and become tools for the New Evangelization. As part of this, the Vatican has organized several exhibits, one of them is in Castel Sant' Angelo.

"I am sure that an exhibit about the Christian faith can be an invitation to actually reflect on the faith itself.”

In addition to all the pilgrimages and exhibits on religious art, the Year of Faith is also about reflecting on the Sacraments. On April 28th, 40 youths from around the world, will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation from the Pope himself.
