.- Bishop Ruben Frassia of Avellaneda said this week “the world appears to no longer have any time for God,” and he called on the faithful to be converted during this time of Lent.”

In his message for Lent 2007, Bishop Frassia said, “God has something to tell us,” askin his people whether they are open to what the Lord has to say.

“Have we decided? When Easter comes will we be able to say that our lives and our commitment have improved during this Lent?” he asked.

“Nobody can change without first deciding to convert and taking this time of Lent seriously,” the bishop said.  “Getting to the end well depends on this.  Let’s not fool ourselves.”

“Our communities should believe in the strength of Him who saves us,” he continued.  “The witness who is convinced has something to say to others. Lent, a time of conversion, also demands decisiveness.”

In his message Bishop Frasia also expressed his hopes that the 5th General Conference of the Latin American Bishops’ Council, which will take place May 13-14 in Brazil, will “encourage us to see clearly the new challenges and the appropriate urgent responses from the Church and society.”
