The upcoming Year of Faith is a “summons to an authentic and renewed conversion to the Lord, the One Savior of the world” (Porta Fidei 6).
Life in Christ
"Thus, as long as the danger and uncertainty of death are present, so long am I to believe that Christ is my life, that is, the whole time that I am here on earth. Let no one evealuate this proclamation according to the hour, season or year~it never becomes null and void so that you dare say, "Christ will be my life when the time comes for me to die, meanwhile I shall live as i please.' But you should know that the time has already come for y ou to make that crossing. You have already stepped into the sea with the children of Israel, and you must press on until you com to the shore, lest the enemy seize you under way" Martin Luther, 1911

In all, about 250 JVs each year work in the United States and in seven countries around the world.
