VATICANO (ACI/EWTN Noticias) - El anuncio lo ha hecho Mons. Rino Fisichella, Presidente del Pontificio Consejo para la Promoci贸n de la Nueva Evangelizaci贸n, a trav茅s del peri贸dico del Vaticano, L'Osservatore Romano, en un art铆culo titulado "Ante Pedro la clausura del A艅o de la Fe".

Las reliquias del Ap贸stol, que fue crucificado de cabeza el 29 de junio del a艅o 67, permanecen en las grutas vaticanas durante las celebraciones. Con motivo de esta exposici贸n saldr谩n de este lugar pero, hasta el momento, no se sabe m谩s detalles.

El Arzobispo Fisichella recuerda que durante este A艅o de la Fe, uno "rico en gracia", millones de personas han rezado ante la tumba de Pedro. "En este contexto, un 煤ltimo signo culminante ser谩 la exposici贸n por primera vez de las reliquias que la tradici贸n reconoce como las del Ap贸stol que ha dado su vida por el Se艅or".

"La fe de Pedro, por lo tanto, confirmar谩 una vez m谩s que la puerta para el encuentro con Cristo est谩 siempre abierta y espera ser cruzada con el mismo entusiasmo y convicci贸n de los primeros creyentes. Un camino que los cristianos de hoy saben que deben seguir sin cansancio, porque son fuertes y se ven confirmados por la contemplaci贸n del rostro de Cristo", escribe el Prelado.

Mons. Fisichella escribe tambi茅n que el d铆a 21 de noviembre, el Papa Francisco visitar谩 un monasterio de clausura de Roma, de las religiosas camaldulenses en el Aventino, para un momento de oraci贸n y el d铆a 23 se reunir谩 con un grupo de catec煤menos en San Pedro.

"La uni贸n entre acci贸n y contemplaci贸n es uno de los puntos cardinales que la fe expresa y tiene siempre necesidad de ser confirmada. Y por esta raz贸n y llegando al final del A艅o de la Fe, el Papa Francisco ha decidido dirigirse el pr贸ximo 21 de noviembre a un monasterio de clausura para un momento de oraci贸n", escribe Mons. Fisichella.

El A艅o de la Fe concluir谩 el 24 de noviembre con una misa presidida por el Papa en la Plaza de San Pedro.
