Lumen Fidei begins with the words: 'The light of Faith - this is how the Church's tradition speaks of the great gift brought by Jesus.'
This video from the Franciscan University of Steubenville provides an in depth and wide-ranging analysis of Lumen Fidei, the first encyclical of Pope Francis' pontificate.
The 2013 letter is doubly interesting for having been released by Pope Francis, but drafted in large part by his predecessor, the Pope Emeritus Benedict.
Join Host Michael Hernon, with theologian panelists Dr Regis Martin and Dr Scott Hahn, and special guest Fr Sean O. Sheridan, TOR, President of Franciscan University of Steubenville, as they discuss the first encyclical published by Pope Francis, Lumen Fidei, and its impact on our daily lives.
