As some readers will know, Pope John Paul II had given “themes” to certain years. The “Year of the Rosary” was October 2003 to October 2004, and the “Year of the Eucharist” is October 2004 to October 2005. I think it’s highly possible that Benedict XVI will continue this tradition. If so, I’m going to make a wild guess as to the theme… I’ll say, “Year of the Priesthood.” I’ll find out if I’m right or wrong in two months :-). I haven’t seen or read any other predictions for the October 2005-2006 theme yet, but I wouldn’t be surprised if some other people have made this or other guesses. Do you have a theme prediction? If so, what is it?
