From Father Nev

 19-5-19 – 5th Sunday of Easter  

This weekend we have four parents bringing forward their children for Baptism. We pray that as a Catholic community we would welcome and support these families as they embark on this journey of faith. Thank you also to the newly formed Baptismal Preparation Team assisting me to assist and integrate these families into our parish community. It also happens to be Volunteer Week. Anyone who helps out with the any ministry is welcome to pick up a gift over the weekend. This week I had the pleasure of listening to Bishop Paul Tighe, currently working in the Vatican in the Pontifical Council of Culture. He reflected on how the digital world is the arena where younger people are being informed, finding affirmation and are networking professionally, socially and perhaps spiritually. We as the Church can see this as a barrier or an opportunity to reach out not only to millennials but also to peoples who may not necessarily have contact with the Church. He shared that the various communications mediums radio, print and newspaper in the Vatican formed historically but not strategically. So Pope Benedict and Francis immediately began the process of integrating all the mediums together including the digital field. Pope Francis has drawn his inspiration from Vatican II document Gaudium et Spes in his engagement with social media. He wants the Church in its engagement with the world to be open to giving and receiving the goodness of God’s beauty. There are many innovations and learnings that the world can teach us as well as us providing a strong voice in the areas of truth and orthodoxy. Pope Benedict coined a phrase “the Courtyard of the Gentiles” which refers to the physical separation of the Temple and the pagans who lived outside in the courtyard. We today need to connect with those who have influence in society as well as the marginalised. All of them need the message that God loves them unconditionally. He also shared a code of conduct the Council is trying to imbue with the practical and responsible use of social media. As believers in Christ we can build a positive online culture. We are encouraged to listen, converse and encourage robust and valuable discussions, chats and posts. As neighbours we are invited to respond to people’s posts and blogs with mercy, tenderness and be the Good Samaritan. When we interact in cyberspace we should witness real authenticity, model appropriate conviction and be a sharer of hope, faith and grace. We must be good discerners and learn when to speak and when to let love speak (Deus Caritas est, 31). A good question for us to ask is how do we as Church and as individual Catholics minister to people on the internet?

By Dr. Peter VardyTHE REFORMATION TODAY: AN ECUMENICAL PERSPECTIVE 

2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Many historians consider the Reformation one of those epoch changing events in the history of the Western world. But what does it mean for people in Australia 500 years later? Was the Reformation just a series of pointless disputes which have little relevance to the church today? Or is the church today the living legacy of the Reformation, and if so, what does this mean for us? Join us as we ask these questions together.
