The Archbishop of Washington DC., Donald Wuerl, has written a most powerful pastoral letter on Sacramental Confession.
This is long overdo and I am very greatful to see it, even though I've not yet read it. Hat-tip to CWNews where I picked it up. Unfortunately, today it is by subscription only that you can read their article on it.
However, here is the actual document:
God's Mercy and the Sacrament of Penance - A pastoral letter to clergy, religious and the laity.
I hope to be reading it over the next few days.
I will post thoughts on the content then.
