Christmas Pastoral Letter 2002 Glory to God in the Highest “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace to men who enjoy his favour.” (Luke 2:14) Every year the angels bring this message to all the corners of the world where Christmas is celebrated. Peace is the most cherished treasure everybody seeks to defend if possessed, or search for if still beyond their grasp. Too many people are agonising under the threat of war or terrorism, too many innocent people, especially children, the elderly and women, are suffering from the consequences of war, famine, disease, embargo, loss of their…

Christmas Pastoral Letter 2006 “Your sins are forgiven. Do not sin again” Dear brothers and sisters, Christ is born. Let the world rejoice! During Advent the Liturgy of the Church makes use of the Gospel readings to show that the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled in Jesus: He makes the blind see, the deaf hear, the lame walk and the broken hearts consoled. But the greatest miracle is to have sins forgiven. “My child, your sins are forgiven!” That is the true liberation! However, it is strange that this sentence is not always welcome. The Pharisees questioned Jesus where did…

Advent Pastoral Letter 2002 Rediscovering the Beauty of the Holy Rosary Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, At the time you were devoutly praying the Rosary during the vigil for our beloved Cardinal John Baptist Wu and as I related his life to the mystery of the Rosary during the Requiem Mass, the Holy Father was writing an apostolic letter exulting the faithful to rediscover the beauty of the Rosary. During Advent, in this Year of the Rosary, may we use with special fervour, especially in our families, this powerful prayer tool. The prayers of the Rosary are simple and…

MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS POPE BENEDICT XVI FOR  Silence and Word: Path of Evangelization [Sunday, 20 May 2012] Dear Brothers and Sisters, As we draw near to World Communications Day 2012, I would like to share with you some reflections concerning an aspect of the human process of communication which, despite its importance, is often overlooked and which, at the present time, it would seem especially necessary to recall. It concerns the relationship between silence and word: two aspects of communication which need to be kept in balance, to alternate and to be integrated with one another if authentic dialogue…

Bishop’s pastoral letter for Lent Repent and believe in the Gospel! (Mark 1:15) Dear brothers and sisters in Christ These words from the Bible tell us Lent is coming and remind us to see life as a pilgrimage. We are seekers in mind and spirit. This journey that begins in the heart leads us to search for God’s will in our lives. A pilgrim is not a tourist. The goal of a pilgrimage far exceeds what any place that we can arrange to visit can offer. Rather, it is the experience of getting closer to Christ—to dwell in God—so we…

Pastoral Letter for Advent 2020 from our Apostolic Administrator The past months saw the mandatory isolation measures of varying degrees adopted by all countries across the globe with a view to deterring the contagious spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19). Such measures not only impede the interpersonal social contact, but also critically affect the normal operations of every society. Given that the Church constitutes an integral part of the social community, chances are rather remote for her to conduct her normal public activities, including liturgical ceremonies, formation, charity, celebrations and the like. How should the Church respond when the Covid-19 pandemic…

MESSAGE OF HIS HOLINESS POPE FRANCIS FOR THE 51st WORLD COMMUNICATIONS DAY   «Fear not, for I am with you» (Is 43:5): Communicating Hope and Trust in our Time   Access to the media – thanks to technological progress – makes it possible for countless people to share news instantly and spread it widely. That news may be good or bad, true or false. The early Christians compared the human mind to a constantly grinding millstone; it is up to the miller to determine what it will grind: good wheat or worthless weeds. Our minds are always “grinding”, but it…
