I don't remember seeing much press about the letter written by the pope on August 20th in response to the recent scandals. But thankfully our Bishop has sent it out on his newsletter and it is worth reading. In the Pope's letter, he calls the faithful to penitential prayer and fasting. Have your parishes or dioceses organized any unified efforts? Ours is on September 15th and if nothing is been done in your area, you can unite your penitence to ours on that day.
