Dutch bishops’ encouragement for Lent

The Dutch bishops released an extensive message for Lent yesterday, accompanied by a letter that can be read at Masses during the first weekend of Lent. The message is one ‘to encourage’ all Dutch Catholics for the coming Lent, and active participation in the liturgy, next to prayer and reflection, are presented as the means to that end.

Read the message and the letter in Dutch via this link, or my translation of the letter here.
