  • Volume 94 Issue 3 - The seal of confession
    • Abstract: Waters, Ian
      One of the most universally acclaimed films of 2014 was Calvary, a parable of the betrayal of the Irish people by the Irish Catholic Church. The context for the film was the Irish Catholic Church, which had previously defined Ireland's soul, and had recently been revealed to have consciously and methodically covered up atrocities perpetrated in church institutions.

  • Volume 94 Issue 3 - Shifting sands or stumbling blocks' Ethical
           foundations in a pluralist society
    • Abstract: Mackinlay, Shane
      The opening of the legal year is marked by many events, including a range of religious celebrations. These celebrations are part of a long tradition, dating back nearly eight hundred years. The first religious ceremony recorded as marking the start of the legal year was a Mass celebrated in Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris in 1245. Then, it would have been a completely obvious thing to do, as it was unquestioned that those holding civic authority did so only because it had been entrusted to them from God, and that they exercised it on his behalf. A range of powerful symbols made this relation very evident. The religious character of weighty ceremonies such as coronations was complemented by the integral place of faith in the broader culture; religious belief was not so much chosen as an expression of individual commitment, but was simply one characteristic among many others of national culture and identity.

  • Volume 94 Issue 3 - That was then, this is now: The understanding of
           authority and obedience by a selected group of women religious in
           Australia
    • Abstract: Joyce, Rosemarie
      Since the middle of last century, there has been a gradual change in Australian society with regard to how one understands and practises authority and obedience. In the past, those who were in positions of authority, be it church or civil, could expect to be revered and their decisions to be obeyed even if there was no personal agreement with the decision in question. But the situation has changed and continues to change. Many would agree that those who exercise authority today have to earn the respect they require to be shown and that they do not always have the unilateral right to make decisions that affect the general community!

  • Volume 94 Issue 3 - Invoking the patronage of saint Bede in New South
           Wales
    • Abstract: Fowler, Colin
      At the laying of the foundation stone of the Pyrmont church in February 1867 it was announced that the new mission district would be placed under the patronage of the Venerable Bede (673-735). There is no documentation relating to the choice of this patron. However, it may be supposed that the decision was made deliberately to honour the archbishop. The name of this eighth-century English monk had been given to the young John Polding as his personal patron, when he received the Benedictine habit in 1810.

  • Volume 94 Issue 3 - Does 'Evangelium vitae' 73 apply to assisted dying
           legislation'
    • Abstract: Corby, Paschal M
      Following acts to legalise forms of assisted dying in other countries, the Australian state of Victoria is poised to do the same. In June last year, the Legal and Social Issues Committee of the Parliament of Victoria tabled the report resulting from its inquiry into end of life choices, which recommends the passing of laws that would make it legal for a terminally ill patient at the end of his or her life to ask a doctor to help him or her die. This proposal is currently before a ministerial advisory panel consisting of clinical, legal, health administration and palliative care experts, with the task of drafting a bill to be presented in parliament sometime later this year, to be decided by a conscience vote of its members.

  • Volume 94 Issue 3 - Planning for pastoral ministry with
           Sudanese-Australian Catholics: Perspectives from Sydney archdiocese and
           parramatta diocese
    • Abstract: Benjamin, Anne
      South Sudanese Catholic communities have been a significant part of the Australian church for nearly two decades, yet it appears little has been published on their pastoral needs. This article responds to this gap in the literature and focuses on current pastoral needs of Australian Sudanese Catholics that emerged from a study recently completed for the Sydney archdiocese and Parramatta diocese. As such, it provides the pastoral context and offers a platform from which appropriate pastoral initiatives might be developed.

  • Volume 94 Issue 3 - The care of ageing persons: A trinitarian perspective
    • Abstract: Goh, Michelle
      Christian discipleship is to live faithfully Jesus' commandment of love-of God and of our neighbour (Matt 22:36-40; Luke 10:27; John 13:34). The commandment to love especially those who are poor or in need was emphasised by Jesus in his actions and his teachings. Jesus' parable of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:29-37) has traditionally been an influential model of care and compassion. We are given an example of how we ought to extend ourselves to care for each other, especially those who are helpless, suffering or isolated.1 It is increasingly recognised that elderly persons are amongst those who are in need in modern society. This article discusses how the trinitarian perspective of God can enrich our care and service of ageing persons beyond the Good Samaritan paradigm.

           - August 2017
    • Abstract: Dunn, Geoffrey D
      One of my philosophy professors told me there were two sets of alternatives at the heart of philosophy, which is another way of saying that there are two fundamental choices between two different ways at the heart of understanding life. The years have proven, at least as far as I am concerned, just how insightful this observation was. The two sets of alternatives are one and many, and being and flux. The solemn feast of Pentecost, the last day of our Easter season, gives us the opportunity to reflect on the first set: one and many. When we look out at the world, are we the kind of persons who see what we have in common with others and see what unites us, or are we the kind of persons who first notice the differences between us and other people: either our gender, or our skin colour, or our language, or our religion, or our social status, or our nationality, or our education, or our occupation' There are so many things that make us different from one another that it is a rare person who is able to focus on what makes us one.

  • Volume 94 Issue 2 - Contemporary psychology's use in eastern-christian
           pastoral ministry: Psychotherapeutic approaches to the cure of souls
    • Abstract: McDonnell, Justin
      The psychologist wishes to balance man psychologically. The spiritual father aims at his divinisation ... the psychologist employs the method of questioning and listening and tries to make man aware of his problem and to mature psychologically. The spiritual father, illumined by the grace of God, locates the problem-which is the darkness of the nous-and tries to lead man to the theoria of God by the means of the Orthodox method of purification and illumination. The psychologist acts anthropocentrically using thoughts and ideas. The spiritual father acts in a theocentric way. He uses the therapeutic method, but also the mysteries through which the heart receives the grace of God.

  • Volume 94 Issue 2 - The economics behind the social thought of Pope
           Francis
    • Abstract: Duncan, Bruce
      Tracing the sources for the economic thinking embedded in the writings of Pope Francis is not straightforward, especially in his major documents, the apostolic exhortation Evangelii Gaudium (The Joy of the Gospel) of 2013 and the full encyclical Laudato Si': On Care for Our Common Home of 24 May 2015. Many hands were involved in drafting Francis's documents, and there were extensive consultations with experts in critical areas, going back decades. This article gives only passing reference to the critical matters of climate change and sustainability, and instead concentrates on the economic aspects in the writings of Pope Francis.

  • Volume 94 Issue 2 - Euthanasia-the right to die well and beautifully':
           A theological plea
    • Abstract: Lam, Joseph
      Peter Fitzsimons is a competent journalist who does not shy away from expressing his personal opinion on controversial social and ethical issues. In a Sydney Morning Herald online comment published on 11 December 2016, he not only praised the courage of the premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews, but also appealed to members of the New South Wales parliament to follow Andrews' lead to legalise euthanasia. Anticipating the eventual collapse of his own health in the future, Fitzsimons insisted that lawmakers should respect his autonomy and his choice of a peaceful and dignified death. As far as I can see, however, respect for a person's autonomy is not the main problem here. Rather, the key difficulty rests with Fitzsimons's reasoning. He argued:

      Let's say that at the age of 80 or so, I decide that my meaningful life is over, and all that awaits me is-I know, I know, too much detail- incontinent pain for the next five years. And let's say that I don't want that, and would rather pass away peacefully, and with dignity, in a medically supervised manner. My question to the opponents of euthanasia: if I choose to do that, what business is it of yours'

  • Volume 94 Issue 2 - Personal charisms and the charism of office: A
           possible convergence
    • Abstract: Ekpo, Anthony
      The church is a sacrament of the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, a fruit of Pentecost (Acts 2:1-3). The church came to birth through the instrumentality of the Holy Spirit and is forever sustained and renewed through the influence of the same Spirit. It is in the Spirit-the breath of God that cannot be domesticated by anyone-that the church lives, moves and has its being. Without the Spirit, therefore, the church would not be the living Body of Christ; it would rather be a corpse, which, left to its own devices, could only putrefy and decay. Hence, the church is the workshop of the Holy Spirit, and through his graciousness, the church and its members are blessed with myriads of pneumatic enablement that have been called charisms. Charisms 'are the manifold ways in which the graciousness of God is manifested in the lives of individual Christians, especially by making them effective instruments of grace to others in the body of Christ'.

    • Abstract: Gooley, Anthony
      For the Year of Mercy the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelization invited the deacons of the world to attend a jubilee in Rome. The Jubilee for Deacons included a conference component to reflect on the theme of the deacon and the new evangelisation. I was invited to give a paper during the conference and what follows is an extended version of the one that I presented on 29 May, in the Church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva. I have kept some of the tone of a live presentation in this article.

           laetitia: Pope Francis as pastor
    • Abstract: Ryan, Tom
      'Accompanying, Discerning and Integrating Weakness' is the 'contested' chapter 8 of Pope Francis's postsynodal allocution 'The Joy of Love' (Amoris Laetitia). This collegial document can be approached from various perspectives, for example, in its historical and theological context; in its significance for moral theology; in its reception within local churches. The aim here is pastoral, namely, to clarify the chapter's content and, specifically, its implications for the faithful and those engaged in pastoral ministry.

  • Volume 94 Issue 1 - The fourth dimension: Why time is of the essence in
           sacramental theology
    • Abstract: Wright, Claire Louise
      If the sacraments are, as Louis-Marie Chauvet argues, the major symbolic expressions of 'the body as the point where God writes God's self in us', few concepts could be more central to sacramental theology than time, the medium in which human, ecclesial, cultural and cosmic 'bodies' have their being and expression. Christian narratives, traditions and rituals are founded in history and the shared memory of culture. As Miroslav Volf notes, the 'sacred memory' of the death and resurrection of Christ defines the identity of Christians as 'the pulsating heart that energizes and directs their actions (in the present) and forms their hopes (for the future)'. Indeed, all human experience, identity and meaning-making are mediated by an awareness of time, the flow and relativity of chronos and the moment(ousness) of kairos. As Chauvet puts it, the 'sensible mediation' of history (together with language, body and desire) comprises 'the very milieu within which human beings attain their truth and thus correspond to the Truth which calls them'.

  • Volume 94 Issue 1 - Death and displacement: Catholic missionaries in New
           Guinea in World War 2
    • Abstract: Nolan, Malachy J
      When Japanese forces invaded New Guinea during the Second World War, there was a large missionary presence in the territory that had been built up in the preceding fifty years. The territory was previously a German possession but had been administered as a trust territory of Australia under a League of Nations mandate after the First World War. Geographically, it consisted of the northern part of the eastern half of the New Guinea mainland; the large islands of New Britain and New Ireland, which lay to the north-east; and the Bougainville portion of the Solomon Islands, further to the east. There were missionaries from both Protestant and Catholic Churches and, because of history, many of these were of German background.

  • Volume 94 Issue 1 - The search for the missing Gallipoli grave
    • Abstract: Tyquin, Michael
      We all associate war with death-and remembrance. But amidst the slaughter of World War One, and, for Australians, the Gallipoli campaign, it is easy to forget the anguish of those who did not fight. These were the parents, siblings, lovers and friends of soldiers who went to war and who never came home. This is the story of a father who went to extreme lengths to find the last resting pace of his young son who was killed on Gallipoli in 1915.

  • Volume 94 Issue 1 - 'Everything is interconnected': The trinity and the
           natural World in Laudato Si'
    • Abstract: Edwards, Denis
      All those who read Laudato Si' are struck by the way Pope Francis says over and over again that everything is interconnected, or that everything is interrelated. In this article I will seek to explore the significance of this theme. In particular, I will ask about its theological meaning, attempting to bring out two aspects of Pope Francis's thought: (1) the insight that interrelationships of the natural world can be seen as a pale reflection of the dynamic relations of trinitarian life; (2) the conviction that ecological conversion-learning to relate to the natural world, as well as to other humans and to God-is essential to the very nature of the human made in the image of the dynamically relational God.

  • Volume 94 Issue 1 - Reflections on the readings of Sundays and feasts
           March-May 2017
    • Abstract: Dunn, Geoffrey D
      Lent is a time of preparation for Easter. It developed during the fourth century as a time when sinners, who could no longer participate as full members of the church due to the serious and public nature of their offences, prepared for reconciliation with the church through penance, and adult catechumens, who were seeking to join the church as new members, prepared for initiation into the church. The season is a time of renewal of relationships for the community, of renewal of our relationship with God and of renewal of our relationships with others. The central theme is conversion: a conversion as radical as reorienting one's whole life according to the gospel of Jesus, and as total as requiring the surrender of life. We surrender our old way of life and allow the Spirit to conform us to the new way of life as a disciple of Jesus. The Year A readings have a particular focus on the initiation of catechumens, who, at the start of Lent, celebrate the rite of election and enter the final period of purification and enlightenment before initiation at Easter. On the Third, Fourth, and Fifth Sundays the elect celebrate the scrutinies, when the community examines their readiness for initiation. The symbols of the Easter liturgy feature in the readings of these three Sundays: water, light, and life.

  • Volume 94 Issue 1 - An exploration of the eucharistic spirituality of the
           eastern fathers of the church
    • Abstract: Thorp, Luke
      If one were to undertake an enquiry as to what constituted early Christian eucharistic spirituality in the church, both East and West, in the first seven centuries, an immediate problem would be encountered-in fact, several problems. The first would be that for the Christians of the first seven centuries, spirituality and theology were synonymous. One did not exist without the other; they were part of a seamless garment. The second issue would be that the term 'eucharistic spirituality' is a relatively modern one and difficult to retroactively apply to a previous age. The third issue that one would encounter would be the fact that any spirituality or theology is never formed in a vacuum: time, place, people and experience all play a role in developing unique spiritual expressions. The legacy that Ignatius of Antioch leaves us in relation to the Eucharist differs markedly from that of either Maximus the Confessor or John Chrysostom. While it might seem trite to suggest this, it is important for a twenty-first century mindset to be reminded of it in order to better appreciate and enter more fully into a eucharistic spirituality.

           of the present
    • Abstract: Lennan, Richard
      Among courses that I teach is one entitled simply 'Tradition'. A standard response from colleagues and students when they hear the name of the course is to quote, perhaps even sing, the opening chorus from Fiddler on the Roof. While conclusions drawn from such a small sample are not necessarily definitive, it may be that the lyrics from Fiddler on the Roof encapsulate perfectly the perception of 'tradition' that prevails in our culture and church.

  • Volume 94 Issue 1 - Responding to the gospel in the marriage relationship
    • Abstract: O'Loughlin, Frank
      Over recent years there has been a great deal of discussion and disagreement about the nature of marriage and family both in the public sphere and within the church. Almost every aspect of human relationships and sexuality has come up for discussion. The two synods on marriage and the family that took place in Rome in 2014 and 2015 have been a watershed for Catholics in these discussions. Similar discussions will need to continue for some time yet if we are to come to greater clarity and depth in our understanding of the many issues involved. In this article I am seeking to put forward elements of the Christian tradition concerning marriage that, I hope, may be helpful background in these current discussions.
