Archbishop Carlson's pastoral letter 'Jesus Christ the Divine Physician' focuses on confession

Archbishop Robert J. Carlson's new pastoral letter on the Sacrament of Reconciliation, "Jesus Christ, the Divine Physician" is available just in time for Lent.Archbishop Carlson points out that sin means something is deeply wounded in us and we have weakened or ruptured our relationship with God. The Sacrament of Penance is where God's desire to heal us meets our desire to be healed, he adds.

The pastoral letter is punctuated by meditation points. Archbishop Carlson states in the introduction that the meditations "are there to engage your heart, not only your head, in reflecting on the Sacrament of Penance. Rather than just reading the letter and thinking about the Lord, the meditations allow us to pray with the 'text' of our own hearts and lives, and then draw near to the Lord to experience His healing love."

The pastoral letter can be ordered at $1 each by contacting Theresa Orozco at (314) 792-7507 or online at
