St.Peter’s Catholic Church Biggleswade.

This week sees ther launch of the ‘Year of Faith’, called for by the Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI, why it is called so is best explained in His words “it is a twelve month opportunity to get closer to God” and goes on to say "Faith is a lifelong companion that makes it possible to perceive, ever anew, the marvels that God works for us. Intent on gathering the signs of the times in the present of history, faith commits every one of us to become a living sign of the presence of the Risen Lord in the world."
The Year of faith started on Thursday 11thOctober which was the 50th anniversary of the ‘Second Vatican Council’, this was opened under Pope John XXIII in 1962 and concluded three years later in 1965 under Pope Paul VI. The purpose of which was to address relationships between the Roman Catholic Church and the modern world. This week prior to the launch the Holy Father has focused on the power of social networking platforms like Facebook and Twitter as digital tools for evangelisation that he hopes will create a more dynamic and humane world. St.Peter’s has a Blog which everyone is invited to comment on this or other issues at The gospel this week was from Mark 10:2-16 concerns the complexity of human relationships that opens the door to reflections about the heart of how our community evolves.
