Northeast India: pastoral letter for the Year of Faith

April 09, 2013

The bishops of 15 dioceses in northeastern India have issued a pastoral letter for the Year of Faith.

In their letter, issued during a meeting that concluded on April 4, the bishops analyzed the challenges facing their region, including poverty, “moral decadence, breakdown in traditional family and moral values, consumerism and materialism,” according to a statement from the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of India.

To meet these challenges, the bishops called for “renewed conversion to the Lord Jesus” and offered several recommendations, including pilgrimages, Marian devotion, and the translation of Church documents into local languages.
