The Augustinians of the Assumption in the Philippines have sent a letter to the Nuncio in the Philippines expressing their commitment to the Letter of His Holiness Pope Francis to the People of God – his response to various news reports of clerical sexual abuse in the Church.
« During our Congregation’s last monthly retreat, we read and meditated on his letter. We shared our feelings and emotions about this challenge that we face today. We have decided to have a special adoration of the Blessed Sacrament every Saturday morning to pray for the victims of sexual abuse, the healing of the Church, and for Pope Francis.
We have also decided to publish the Letter of Pope Francis to the people of God in our monthly missal “Living with Christ” in October so that people can read, meditate, share, and put into action the reflections of the Holy Father. We also prayed and included this in our Mass intentions. » Fr. Bernard Holzer, AA
