    “Suddenly this text spoke to me in a way that differed from the usual interpretation. Isn’t Jesus saying to us with these words: Why are you asking me for lots of faith? Maybe your faith is ‘far too big’? Only if it decreases, until it is as small as a mustard seed, will it give…

    “Those who pretend to reform the Church with the same means used to reform temporal society – not only will they fail in their undertaking but they will infallibly end by finding themselves outside the Church…it is they who exclude themselves from her by a kind of tragic fatalism. The only way to reform the…

    Safeguarding Strategy 2018-2020

    Download the pamphlet Pope Francis has laid out a clear message for the Church when it comes to the crucial question of safeguarding.

    Why Jesus Matters In Modern Australia? – Archbishop Mark Coleridge (Facebook Live)

    Welcome everybody to my place, this big old house called Wynberg, which means ‘vineyard’. It’s been the home of the Archbishop’s of Brisbane for about years and it’s seen a lot of things through those years.

    A response to the Royal Commission’s final report

    By Archbishop Mark Coleridge The Royal Commission’s examination of sexual abuse in the Catholic Church and the response to it by leadership is now done.

    A response to the New York Times article of September 12, 2017

    I preface my remarks by saying that I haven’t read the RMIT Report but only the New York Times report of the Report: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/09/12/world/australia/australia-catholic-church-child-abuse.html?mcubz=1 The report suggests that the Report isn’t quite up to speed with the state of play in Australia at this time.
