A Lenten Pastoral Note to the Faithful of the Archdiocese of Denver


Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

At the outset of our collective Lenten journey of prayer, penance and almsgiving, I am writing this pastoral note to reflect on where we are in our cultural moment, to share how I believe we as an archdiocese are being called to respond and, finally, to invite you personally to three practices this Lent. Ultimately, it is my wish to propose to you, in a turbulent time, the one answer to every question and longing of the human heart: Jesus Christ, and him crucified. He who is “the way, the truth and the life,” who leads us to and shows us the Father (Jn. 14:6-7).
