Australian Bishops Call for Fasting for Survivors of Abuse

Postby seamas o dalaigh » Mon Feb 05, 2018 9:48 pm

The Australian Catholic bishops have proclaimed the days from Ash Wednesday until the following Saturday (February 14-17) Days of Fasting and Reparation in sorrow for child sexual abuse and the healing of victims.

In a message to the Catholic community at the beginning of Lent, the bishops have declared the Days of Fasting and Reparation to be an "authentically Catholic response" to supplement the Church's efforts in the area of the protection of children and vulnerable adults.
