the first pauline year

Pope Bendict XVI is going to announce the first Pauline year. The Church is known for dedicating years toward various themes; we’ve had many Marian years, years dedicated to the Eucharist or the Rosary, but now, to the Apostle to the Gentiles, Paul.
St. Paul, who is turning the ripe old age of 2,000, will be the focus of a year starting June 29, 2008, the Feast of Sts. Peter and Paul and ending on the same feast in 2009. No information has been released on what type of events the Vatican will be hosting for the year.
The Paulist Fathers, who look to St. Paul as their patron, will be the midst of celebrating their 150th anniversary.
I like it when things work together.
