This is a time for prayer & penance & purification for those of us who are bishops & priests. And as we work for the renewal and reform of the Church, we are asking humbly for your assistance and expertise — as mothers and fathers, and as faithful Catholics in all walks of life.

This is the task for each one of us today. We need to start with ourselves and make a new commitment to holiness, to becoming saints in our ordinary lives.

Now is a time to pray and study our history. This is not the first time that scandal and evil have entered the Church. We need to learn from the holy men and women who have gone before us, the saints that God raises up in every age to reform and renew his Church.

St. Paul said that God wants nothing else but our holiness. In a time of deep corruption in the Church, St. Catherine of Siena used to quote Paul’s words over and over in the prophetic letters she wrote lay people, priests, bishops and even the pope.

Jesus calls us to perfection, to become the people that God created us to be: “Be perfect, just as your heavenly Father is perfect.”

The foundation of true renewal in the Church is always a return to Jesus Christ — his person and mission, his life, death and resurrection for us and for our salvation.
