Bishops of England and Wales call for Prayer of Reparation and Atonement

The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales have issued an invitation to Catholics in England and Wales to make the four Fridays in May 2010 special days of prayer by spending coming before the Blessed Sacrament in our parishes to pray to God for healing, forgiveness and a renewed dedication.

The bishops ask us to pray for all who have suffered abuse, for those who mishandled these matters and added to the suffering of those affected, and also for those who committed these sins of abuse that they will make their journey of repentance and atonement.

The full statement is on the Bishops' Conference website and can be heard on the video below:

  1. Somehow I can't help thinking it should be the bishops in sackcloth and ashes and not necessarily the faithful.
