Pauline Year

On June 28th, Pope Benedict XVI inaugurated the Pauline Year, which which come to an end on June 19th, 2009, to commemorate the two-thousandth anniversary of his birth.

This "Pauling Year," the Pope explained, "will take place in a special way in Rome," the city where the basilica dedicated to the Apostle of the Gentiles is located, under whose main altar his remains are contained. For this Pauline Year a number of liturgical and cultural events, which will be announced at a later date, are planned in this great church and its surroundings.

"Likewise, in every part of the world, analogous initiatives can be realised in the
Dioceses, Sanctuaries and places of worship of Religious Institutes, of study, or of assistance,
that bear the name of St Paul or that is inspired by his figure and his teachings," Benedict XVI affirmed.
