June 2008 Thru 2009: The Year of St. Paul
Designed to celebrate the 2,000th anniversary of the birth of St. Paul, which historians place between the years 7 and 10 AD, the Pauline Year, in the words of the Pope, will include ‘a series of liturgical, cultural and ecumenical events, as well as various pastoral and social initiatives, all inspired by Pauline spirituality’ to take place between June 28, 2008 and June 29, 2009.
‘Seminars and special publications on the Pauline texts will also be prepared in order to make better known the great wealth of teaching they contain, a true patrimony of humanity redeemed in Christ. Furthermore, in all parts of the world, similar initiatives can be organized in dioceses, shrines and places of worship by religious institutions, by social or educational institutes bearing the name of St. Paul or inspired by his character and teaching.’
