Bishop calls for 'significant' sacrifices during Lent

THE BISHOP a Portsmouth has said he is making a "significant" sacrifice for Lent and has exhorted his flock to do the same.

hi a Lenten pastoral letter, to be read out in churches, Bishop Crispian Hollis said: "By reminding you of Lent and its demands — and I want to try to offer something significant to the Lord myself at this time — I invite you to join me in your own way so that, together, we can make this season a special time of prayer, fasting and generous giving to those in need.

He added: "I want us to do this together, but with a minimum of fuss or publicity. I hope that my Lent and yours can be a real and genuine sign of repentance for everything that we, in the Church, have done to increase the sufferings of an already overburdened and afflicted world."

When asked what he meant by his words he refused to elaborate, other than to say that to do so would be "invidious".
