A Year Consecrated to St. Paul



Celebration of the 2000th Anniversary of Paul

27/06/2008: General House

Pope Benedict XVI proclaimed the “Pauline Year” consecrated to St. Paul, to celebrate the 2000th anniversary of the birth of the Apostle to the Nations. This special Pauline Year will begin on 28th June 2008 and it will last until 29th June 2009.

The Pauline Year offers a precious opportunity to rediscover the Apostle and his life, to read his many letters addressed to the first Christian communities, to live again the beginning of our Church and study his crucial teachings to the “Gentiles”, while meditating his vigorous spirituality of faith, hope and love. It is also an opportunity to make a pilgrimage to his tomb and the many places he visited to found the first communities of the Church, to revitalise our faith and role in the Church today in the light of his teachings, to pray and work for Christian unity in a united Church.

In Rome, to celebrate the 2000th anniversary of the birth of the Apostle to the Nations, the Opera Romana Pellegrinaggi has organised an itinerary through the city in nine stops. The tour will lead the pilgrims to meet St. Paul, to rediscover his life and to live again his experience of faith. During this Jubilee Year other itineraries are organised in Turkey, where St. Paul was born, in Syria, where his conversion took place, at Malta, where he shipwrecked while coming to Rome, in Greece, where he founded many communities, and in Cyprus, where he carried out his first missionary journey.
