Finding Our Way to the ‘Light of Faith’

The Light of Faith

In July, Pope Francis released his first encyclical, “Lumen Fidei – The Light of Faith.”

Following “Deus Caritas Est” (2005) and “Spes Salve” (2007), “Lumen Fidei” completes a series of encyclicals on the three theological virtues written by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. Rev. Nicholas R. Ayo, C.S.C., professor emeritus in the Program of Liberal Studies at the University of Notre Dame, writes about what the encyclical means for us as the faithful in the latest issue of Pillars.

“‘Lumen Fidei'” explores the many ways the ‘light of faith’ enables human beings one and all to come closer to where their origins begin and where their destinies end,” Fr. Ayo writes.
