The Pontifical Mission Societies announced the campaign during a meeting with Pope Benedict on May 11. During his address to the societies’ directors, the Pontiff said that he was “very pleased to encourage the project of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples and the Pontifical Mission Societies in supporting the Year of the Faith. This project provides a worldwide campaign, which, through the prayer of the Holy Rosary, [will] accompany the work of evangelizing the world and for many of the baptized to rediscover and deepen the faith.”
