Reflections on its future in the light of the Royal Commission
Thank you for this opportunity to share with you some of my reflections on the future of the priesthood in Australia. I am conscious that I am a kind of Johnny-come-lately rather than a native born Australian and that many of you here have a breadth of pastoral experience far richer and deeper than mine. Nor do I claim to have better knowlege of this subject. For I am yet to feel any ontological advantage of my episcopacy (!).

CRIBBING FOR CHRISTMAS
Download >>> Christ the King 2018
Advent begins the Church’s Year. We return to our beginning in order to understand where we Christians were born and to plot our way toward where we are destined to be. The word Advent means ‘The Coming’. It refers, of course, to the coming of Jesus into our world. But it refers, too, to our coming of age as we are called to become what God intends us to be. We need to know where we come from, what we are for, and where we are going. In Advent there are lots of comings and goings.
