The Wear GRAY movement is the laity’s response to the widespread sexual crimes and corruption affecting the very fabric of our Catholic Church. The movement unites all in prayer, fasting, and penance with one heart, urgently calling all cardinals, bishops, and priests to humbly offer reparation for the sins of the Church and to act immediately to bring all guilty to swift justice, while supporting the victims and many diligent faithful priests and religious. In Nineveh, the people proclaimed a fast, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth. The king and his princes then followed the example of the people (Jonah 3:1-10).
PRAY, FAST, AND DO PENANCE.
MAKE YOUR OWN WEAR GRAY PIN, AND WEAR IT DAILY.
LEAVE YOUR COLORFUL CLOTHES AT HOME, AND WEAR GRAY TO MASS, MARKING A PERIOD OF GRIEVING AND PENANCE (JONAH 3:5).
WRITE LETTERS TO POPE FRANCIS AND THE BISHOPS, ASKING THEM TO JOIN US IN PURIFYING OUR CHURCH.
