Bishop Thomas J. Tobin of Providence, United States, writes a letter that most likely has a target audience in all western nations afflicted by excessive secularism. It is a pastoral and honest invitation for ‘inactive Catholics’ to come home to the Church, and at the same time it offers a challenge to these Catholics, and us all, to (re)consider our relationship with God and understand what the Church teaches and why.
I have a Dutch translation here.
