Pope Francis' first encyclical, Lumen Fidei (Light of Faith) builds on the work of his predecessor, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, completing a trilogy of encyclicals on the theological virtues-faith, hope, and love. This encyclical, 'written by four hands,' will encourage the People of God to embrace their faith more fully in this Year of Faith and beyond.
The first encyclical from Pope Francis, a continuation of Pope Benedict XVI's encyclical letters on charity and hope, addresses the gift of faith that God has extended to us and how the light of faith needs to be nourished and reinforced so that it can guide us on our collective and individual faith journey.
