I just don't get the Vatican's dating-of-documents practices. What possible point is served in telling us the text was written (assuming it was) on October 30, 2009? What difference could it possibly make? And, while were at it, why release it now, weeks in advance of Lent? Is there something in here that just can't wait?

Carl E. Olson

I don't know the reason for the October '09 date, but since Ash Wednesday is less than two weeks ago, I'm guessing the idea is to allow time for the Lenten Message to be disseminated to dioceses, parishes, newspapers, etc., so folks can read it before Lent begins, not a week or so afterwards.

Ed Peters

Yeah. Maybe so.

Brian J. Schuettler

A beautiful reflection. As Catholics, we are very fortunate to have a guide through the liturgical season of Lent.
