Bishop Kieran Issues Pastoral Letter for End of Year of Faith

The Bishop of Arundel & Brighton, Kieran Conry has issued a pastoral letter to mark the end of the Year of Faith which was read in all churches in the diocese at the weekend.

Bishop Kieran reflected on the nature of faith and the need for it to be first and foremost "a personal response to God’s love and an acceptance of that offer of God’s friendship."

The heart of faith for the Bishop is that "despite me and my mistakes, God loves me intensely and without reservation or condition. Faith is believing what the basic gospel message is: it’s not, “Do this,” but see what God has done. God loved the world so much that he sent his Son to die for us and free us from our sins."

To read his letter in full or listen to the audio version go to the Diocesan website.
