Following on from the Papal visit the Archbishop of Westminster sent a pastoral letter to his diocese last Sunday urging Catholics to give greater public signs of their belief and practice. Given the position of the See of Westminster this can be seen as addressed to all the Catholics of England and Wales.
Fr Sean at Valle Adurni gives a link to the text of the Archbishop's letter and adds some excellent comments of his own here.
This seems a very appropriate and timely response to the tremendous success of the Papal visit. I felt renewed in my sense of being a Catholic and in the wish to be a more active and devout Catholic. We should not as a community be afraid to make our faith known and understood. Of course that does not mean frantic proseletysing but rather a firm, quiet confidence in saying and doing what we believe to be right and true.
