Irish Bishops' Pastoral Letter for Lent 2012

The Pastoral Letter of the Irish Catholic Bishop's Conference for Lent 2012 is about repentance. The reflections spring from a reading of the temptations of Jesus in the desert in St Matthew's Gospel (4:1-10). This letter is a very worthwhile read. It situates penance in the context of our need for continual conversion and the situation of our own time.
