"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.
