Pope to proclaim 2012 "Year of the Faith"?

According to French-language Rome-based news agency I.Media, Pope Benedict XVI will probably declare 2012 a special year, the "Year of the Faith" - including, perhaps, an encyclical letter. The year would also celebrate the 20th anniversary of the publication of the first edition of the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCE), whose typical Latin edition was released in 1997. The Holy See has not commented on the report. [Source: La Croix; tip: Le Forum Catholique.]
