Order Form for Cardinal Seán’s Pastoral Letter on Sunday Mass

With the Feast of Christ the King 2012, Cardinal Seán P. O’Malley has issued a Pastoral Letter on the importance of the Sunday Mass entitled “Jesus’ Eager Desire: Our Participation in the Sunday Mass”.

 Pastoral letters are a means for bishops to guide those in their dioceses in aspects of Catholic teachings, worship or social concerns. Bishops have three key responsibilities in the Church: to teach, to sanctify and to govern the diocese to which he is assigned by the Pope. Writing Pastoral Letters is an important way a Bishop fulfills the teaching aspect of his ministry. More than any single homily or letter or directive of a Bishop, a Pastoral Letter invites the clergy, consecrated religious and laity of the diocese to give prayerful and careful consideration to the content of the letter. In his 26 years as a Bishop, Cardinal O’Malley has written more than a dozen Pastoral Letters.
