  • Volume 95 Issue 2 - Safeguarding the seal of confession
    • Abstract: Fisher, Anthony
      In 1834 convicts of the Norfolk Island penal colony conspired to overpower the troops and take possession of the island. A gang on its way to work turned on their guards. Others, having feigned illness and been transferred to hospital, broke their chains and came to their assistance. But the third wave, of farm workers with farm implements, arrived too late to be of any help. In the fiasco that followed several were killed and after a trial in Sydney thirty-one men were sentenced to death.

  • Volume 95 Issue 2 - A year later
    • Abstract: Hill, John
      Sixty years ago, in 1958, a novel was published posthumously in Italy, 'Il Gattopardo', by Giuseppe Tomasi di Lampedusa.It was a masterpiece that soon became a bestseller and the basis of Visconti's cinema classic. It recounts the impact on a Sicilian aristocratic family of Garibaldi's invasion (at the head of 'I Mille') in 1860, with Sicily's incorporation into the Kingdom of Sardinia and, subsequently, the formation of the Kingdom of Italy. In particular, it portrays the reaction to all this on the part of Don Fabrizio, Prince of Salina, as the state he knows - the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies - collapses around him, and a new state, run by 'new men', compels his adjustment to a new reality.

  • Volume 95 Issue 2 - Incorporating the RCIA process into catholic secondary
           colleges through the religious education curriculum
    • Abstract: van der Velden, Matthew
      In the context of twenty-first-century Australia, Catholic secondary colleges are facing an ever-dwindling number of student enrolments coming from a Catholic background. Students that identify themselves as members of the Roman Catholic Church occupy a wide spectrum of positions along the faith and sacramental journey of the Catholic tradition. In Catholic colleges around Australia, there are a number of Catholic students, sometimes referred to as 'cradle Catholics', who received all of the sacraments of initiation during their childhood, through either sacramental programs attached to their Catholic primary schooling or catechesis sessions provided by their parish. However, there are also a large number of Catholic students who have not received all of the sacraments of initiation, often only receiving baptism as an infant. Additionally, at Catholic colleges there can also be a large number of students who are members of other faith communities, such as Anglicans and members of other Protestant Churches, whose baptism is recognised by the Roman Catholic Church, yet are unable to fully participate in the sacramental opportunities provided by their school, such as the Eucharist and reconciliation. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a powerful process for supporting students such as these to access a more fully formed Catholic faith and sacramental life.

  • Volume 95 Issue 2 - From spiritual formation to outreach: What the
           Maronite people are saying
    • Abstract: Ghosn, Margaret
      In the process leading up to the first Maronite diocesan assembly, a survey was sent to all Maronite parishes and schools in order to provide valuable feedback on what issues were foremost in the minds of the people. This was then to form the basis for the diocesan assembly to be held 12-14 April 2018. The survey sought to ascertain the demographics of those who participated, and parish attendance patterns and participation at parish and diocesan levels. It assessed social services that were accessed, youth needs and family concerns, and offered opportunities for any further feedback. This article examines the responses of the survey and what they reveal about Maronite parishes across Australia, their areas of strength and areas needing improvement, the role of committees, and the needs and vision of the parishioners.

  • Volume 95 Issue 2 - Forming young people for mission in the contemporary
           church: Some lessons from cardinal Cardijn
    • Abstract: Lucas, Brian
      This article will consider some of the issues relating to engagement by young people with Catholic Church structures. Within that context, and within the context of a contemporary theology of mission, it will examine the contribution that Cardinal Cardijn's 'see, judge, act' methodology offers to formation of young people for mission. In particular, it will outline some of the ways in which Catholic Mission in Australia has engaged with young people, including the immersion program for senior students. Finally, it will propose a way in which that program might strengthen links to the traditional Cardijn groups (YCS and YCW).

      In this article I want to look at the priesthood specifically as a sacrament of the church. Much of what is presented here would also apply, mutatis mutandis, to the episcopate and some of it to the diaconate, the other two forms of the sacrament of orders.

  • Volume 95 Issue 2 - The powers of the diocesan administrator
    • Abstract: Daly, Brendan
      I am from Christchurch Diocese, a suffragan diocese of Wellington Archdiocese, a metropolitan see. During the past forty years, one diocesan bishop has resigned and was replaced by his coadjutor. This former coadjutor died soon afterwards. The next bishop resigned and was simultaneously replaced by the appointment of his auxiliary. The next two bishops died and created vacant sees. Usually there are significant time gaps between vacant sees, resulting in each vacancy being a new experience for the key people involved.

  • Volume 95 Issue 2 - Reflections on the readings of Sundays and feasts
           June-August 2018
    • Abstract: Dunn, Geoffrey D
      Older Catholics would have grown up hearing about the sacrifice of the Mass, while in the last fifty years we have increasingly spoken of the celebration of the eucharist. Of course, the eucharist is sacrifice, but it is other things besides, like meal and celebration, and the word 'sacrifice' is easy to misinterpret. For many of us the word 'sacrifice' conjures up thoughts of the killing and slaughter of animals or even people. It is true that the word can mean this, but it has a much broader meaning. To sacrifice something is to remove it from the realm of the everyday and hand it over or dedicate it to some other purpose. Thus, a bloodless sacrifice, like the libation or pouring out of wine, is the offering up of something for someone else's use rather than one's own. Naturally, the killing of a living victim ensures that one cannot change one's mind later on and take it back, especially when the burnt sacrificial animal has often then been eaten by those who had participated in or witnessed the ritual slaughter.

  • Volume 95 Issue 1 - A theology not received, a practice out of time
    • Abstract: Gooley, Anthony
      In this article I want to suggest that significant aspects of the theology of holy orders newly recovered at the Second Vatican Council have not been fully received into the life of the church. As a consequence of this, I will argue, a certain habit of mind or thinking about the place of the presbyter in the parish persists from the preconciliar era. This habit of mind is not well suited to the demands of the current era, and I will make suggestions that could be taken up at the plenary council in 2020.

  • Volume 95 Issue 1 - The mystical and the political: Challenges for the
           australian catholic church
    • Abstract: Gascoigne, Robert
      The sexual abuse crisis and the forthcoming plenary council of the Australian Catholic Church are both a provocation and an opportunity to reflect on the condition of the Catholic Church in Australia and to suggest how it might respond to new and challenging circumstances in ways that can inspire its future life and mission. In this article I want to consider some of the characteristics of the era of Australian Catholicism that is now in the recent past, as well as some of the key features of what could be a new identity for the Catholic Church in Australia. After some historical reflections on the phenomenon of 'Catholicism' and its ambivalent legacy, I advocate a new crystallisation of Catholic identity based in the relationship between the mystical and political, specifically in terms of solidarity and hope in the face of human suffering. The broader political context of these reflections is the threat to humane international relationships posed by radical populism.

  • Volume 95 Issue 1 - Power and leadership of women within the catholic
           church in Australia
    • Abstract: Fox, Patricia
      The first time I heard the words 'Never waste a catastrophe!', they were spoken with an Australian accent during a hearing at the United Nations, in New York, May 2013. The topic was 'Sustainability and the Future of the Planet'. The speaker was describing how a recent catastrophic drought in Australia had provided an unexpected opportunity: it had enabled the disastrous state of the entire Murray-Darling River System to begin to be restored to health. He argued that such had been the political stasis on this critical issue that only a mammoth disaster such as this was able to begin the processes necessary to unlock it.

  • Volume 95 Issue 1 - Transforming the church isn't finished yet
    • Abstract: Cullinane, PJ
      In his encyclical Evangelii Gaudium, Pope Francis sets his hopes, dreams and expectations for the church squarely within the gospel. He says, for example:

      I dream of a 'missionary option', that is, a missionary impulse capable of transforming everything, so that the Church's customs, ways of doing things, times and schedules, language and structures can be suitably channeled for the evangelization of today's world rather than for the Church's own self-preservation.

  • Volume 95 Issue 1 - Monsignor John Joseph N: Academic, war Chaplain,
           Parish priest
    • Abstract: Gleeson, Damian John
      In 1924, after a hiatus of a decade, the Australasian Catholic Record was re-established under the driving force of Monsignor John Joseph Nevin, the then vice-president of St Patrick's College, Manly. Mgr Nevin was ACR's principal editor up until 1937 and with the exception of a trip to Ireland and Europe in 1927, he contributed articles and answered questions on topics ranging across canon law, marriage, and moral theology in virtually every quarterly issue of ACR for more than two decades. At Manly, he educated thousands of seminarians for dioceses across New South Wales and beyond, and was the college's president from 1929 to 1942. As such, Mgr Nevin was probably the most formidable Catholic clerical academic in New South Wales in the interwar period, yet we know little of this prodigious writer and intellectual who was a key adviser, not just to the Sydney hierarchy, but to a wide range of bishops. Apart from Dr Kevin Walsh's splendid history of St Patrick's College, Manly, church historians have not sought to consider the significant career of Mgr Nevin and his influence on several generations of clergy and bishops.

  • Volume 95 Issue 1 - Daniel Mannix: The man, the myth, the mystery
    • Abstract: Vodola, Max
      On a wet Melbourne evening on Saturday 16 September 1916, Archbishop Daniel Mannix (1864-1963), coadjutor to Dr Thomas Carr (1839-1917), attended the opening of the parish bazaar at St John's Parish, Clifton Hill. Mannix was on his way to another function when he made the unscheduled stop at Albert Hall on Queen's Parade.2 After opening the bazaar, Mannix spoke for a few minutes about an issue of great significance, the proposal by the Hughes Government for compulsory military service. Mannix spoke about achieving an honourable peace without conscription, describing conscription as 'a hateful thing' and opining that 'the present war would not have achieved such disastrous proportions if conscription had not prevailed in Europe'. Mannix insisted that Australia had done her fair share and that conscription in Australia would cause more evil than it would avert.3 In speaking on conscription, Daniel had entered the lion's den. Mannix later reflected that the speech at Clifton Hill was his 'original sin'.

  • Volume 95 Issue 1 - Julian tenison woods: Lyricist and missionary
    • Abstract: O'Brien, Roderick
      Among the treasures at the Congregational Archives of the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart in North Sydney is a booklet, a hymnal: a collection of hymns and sacred songs attributed to Fr Julian Tenison Woods.1 The purpose of this short article is to introduce one of those hymns, and provide some information about poetry and songs in Woods's life and mission. I am grateful to the archivist for making this booklet available. Introducing this particular hymn, 'Longing to Go', also gives us some insight into Woods's spirituality regarding death and regarding mission.

  • Volume 95 Issue 1 - Reflections on the readings of sundays and feasts:
           March-May 2018
    • Abstract: Dunn, Geoffrey D
      In the past two weeks we have heard of covenants God made with people: the covenant with Noah symbolised by the rainbow and the covenant with Abraham symbolised by the stars in the night sky. God made fantastic promises and it would seem that God asked for little in return. Perhaps that is unfair. Noah had to suffer seeing the rest of humanity destroyed and Abraham endured the torment of preparing his son for sacrifice. They both offered a significant display of faith and their descendants enjoyed the benefits.

  • Volume 94 Issue 4 - Luther@500: Reformation and reconciliation
    • Abstract: Zweck, Dean
      'Luther@500' was the title for the first ever international conference on Luther in the southern hemisphere. It was held in Melbourne in the middle of 2016 as one of many events around the world in the lead-up to the major commemoration on 31 October 2017. It is significant that the conference venue was the Catholic Leadership Centre, that Catholic clergy were involved in the welcome and the daily prayers in the chapel, that some of the conference attendees were Catholic scholars and priests, and that a lay Catholic Luther scholar, Franz Posset, was invited to give one of the major papers. Fifty or sixty years ago no-one would have thought such a thing possible, or, for that matter, that within one's lifetime the pope would go into a Lutheran cathedral (Lund) or a Lutheran parish church (Rome) to pray with Lutherans, or that there would be Lutheran-Catholic commemorations of the Reformation in 2017 all around the world, some of them held in Catholic cathedrals.

  • Volume 94 Issue 4 - The reformation as 'tragic necessity' revisited
    • Abstract: Emilsen, William W
      On the cusp of the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) the distinguished American Lutheran historical theologian, Jaroslav Pelikan (1923-2006), then at the University of Chicago, published a groundbreaking volume titled The Riddle of Roman Catholicism (1959). In this book Pelikan gave a sympathetic yet critical examination of the evolution of Roman Catholicism, its distinctive beliefs and, most importantly, he offered a discussion of the theological issues Protestants face in their conversations with Roman Catholics on Christian unity. The Riddle of Roman Catholicism met an obvious need. It was quickly reprinted by Abingdon Press in the United States and published by Hodder and Stoughton in Great Britain the following year. It was also widely acclaimed in both the Protestant and Catholic presses. The Christian Century magazine, representing the voice of mainstream Protestantism in America, published excerpts from the book claiming that it 'sets the stage for realistic discussion of Christendom's sad divisions'. The Presbyterian theologian and ecumenist from Princeton, John A. Mackay, reviewed it in Theology Today as an 'outstanding book', 'the most significant to appear on Roman Catholicism in many years'. Daniel Walther, professor of church history at the Seventh-day Theological Seminary at Andrews University in Michigan extolled Pelikan's book as 'a significant omen of the new Protestant approach', one that attempted 'to end the "hot war" between the confessions'. Catholic scholars, too, were receptive. Bonaventure Schepers's review in the Thomist, for example, thanked Pelikan for his 'courage and honesty' and invited the journal's readers 'to rejoice with us at the appearance of his important work'. Gustave Wiegel's lengthy review in the Jesuit review, America, named it as 'probably the most important' of the many interesting Protestant studies of Roman Catholicism at the time. Although Pelikan was still a relatively young scholar at the time, The Riddle of Roman Catholicism established him as a serious thinker on the topic of Christian unity.

  • Volume 94 Issue 4 - Luther's reformation and sixteenth-century Catholic
           reform: Broadening a traditional narrative
    • Abstract: Andrews, Robert M
      A way of dealing with historical episodes, the consequences of which continue to challenge us, is to ask a counterfactual-a 'what if'' question. Martin Luther's life (1483-1546), his critique of the Catholic Church, his challenge to the social and political hegemony of European Catholicism, the resultant splintering of an ecclesial unity assumed by the medieval mind to be practically impenetrable, is one such historical episode. My counterfactual is as follows: What would have been the consequences to European Catholicism had Luther not rebelled against the church' As this article will later discuss, Luther famously spent many hours in the confessional during his time as an Augustinian friar. Luther's superior, spiritual guide, and confessor, Johann von Staupitz (ca. 1463/68-1524)-whose motto was 'I am yours, save me'-often assured Luther that his sins were forgiven, that Christ's work had been done, and that he consequently had no need to despair of the mercy of God. It was advice that Luther ultimately found unsatisfactory. 'I did not love, no, rather I hated the just God who punishes sinners', Luther famously said in 1545, reflecting on his time as a monk, articulating a conscience that found solace only outside of Roman communion.

  • Volume 94 Issue 4 - Teaching reformation history
    • Abstract: Laffin, Josephine
      On 31 October 2017 it will be five hundred years since Martin Luther posted his Ninety-Five Theses on the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, the date traditionally hailed as the start of the Lutheran Reformation. Another anniversary is a personal one: it is twenty-five years since I began teaching Reformation history. It seems an appropriate time, therefore, to pause and reflect on the significance of this task.

  • Volume 94 Issue 4 - Luther@500: Catholic interest in Martin Luther
    • Abstract: Posset, Franz
      The 500th anniversary of Luther's Reformation has been commemorated and celebrated in a decade-long undertaking between 2007 and 2017. At its beginning in 2007, the Catholic-Ecumenical publisher Paulist Press (USA) issued a volume within its series of the Classics of Western Spirituality, titled Luther's Spirituality, which was edited and translated by Lutheran theologians Philip D. Krey and Peter D. S. Krey, with a preface by Lutheran theologian Timothy J. Wengert. It contains numerous text selections. Toward the end of the 'Luther Decade', the two compilers offered another anthology, The Catholic Luther: His Early Writings, published by the same press in 2016, with a foreword by Catholic ecumenist Wolfgang Th nissen, director of the Ecumenical Institute in the Archdiocese of Paderborn, Germany. These are welcome ecumenical signposts.

  • Volume 94 Issue 4 - Lutheran-catholic dialogue in the family
    • Abstract: Gosden, Dale
      Upon sharing the news with my lifelong friend that I was joining the seminary to become a Lutheran pastor, his response was as honest as it was poorly timed. 'It's going to be hard for you to find a girl who wants to marry you now.' This, of course, had been a significant reason behind my hesitation to become a minister in the first place, so at least I felt he understood my fears, even if I didn't appreciate him articulating them. My response was spoken partially in faith and partially out of the need to convince myself with some positive self-talk: 'I guess I'm just trusting that God is going to have to find me a pretty special girl'.

  • Volume 94 Issue 4 - The commemoration of the reformation and the path to
           unity
    • Abstract: Kelly, Gerard
      The tumultuous events of the sixteenth century irrevocably changed the shape of the Western Church and thus Christianity more generally. The division that ensued affected not just the institutional life of the church, but also towns and villages, families and neighbours. For generations, people lived with the consequences of this division, often within the intimacy of their own family life. Fortunately, this has changed. The twentieth century is rightly referred to as the ecumenical century. We are able to point to milestones on the way to unity, beginning with the Edinburgh Missionary Conference in 1910, and then the First World Conference on Faith and Order in 1927, and the formation of the World Council of Churches in 1948. After the conclusion of the Second Vatican Council in 1965, the Catholic Church began to participate in ecumenical gatherings. Its entry brought a new way of ecumenical dialogue, and the era of the bilateral dialogue began, alongside the existing multilateral dialogue. Today the Catholic Church at the international level has been and/or continues to be in dialogue with the Anglican Communion, the Lutheran World Federation, the World Methodist Council, the World Alliance of Reformed Churches, the Baptist World Alliance, the Disciples of Christ (known in Australia as the Churches of Christ), Pentecostals, Evangelicals, and three families of Eastern and Oriental Orthodox Churches. In Australia the Catholic Church is currently engaged in dialogue with the Anglican Church, the Lutheran Church and the Uniting Church. The Catholic Church participates in a multilateral way through both the Joint Working Group with the World Council of Churches and as a member of the Faith and Order Commission of the World Council of Churches.

  • Volume 94 Issue 4 - Autonomy trumps all': A kantian critique of
           physician-assisted death
    • Abstract: Dinh, Hoa Trung
      At the forefront of the current debate on 'assisted death' is the autonomy argument. Advocates of assisted death often appeal to respect for autonomy as a trump card that can override all other considerations: the value of human life, the prohibition of killing in the medical tradition, and other social responsibilities. For Kant, who invented the concept of autonomy and regarded it as the manifestation of human dignity, the concept of killing oneself is rationally indefensible and totally at odds with the exercise of autonomy. This article discusses the origin of respect for autonomy in health ethics, and provides a Kantian critique of physician-assisted death.

  • Volume 94 Issue 4 - Reflections on the readings of Sundays and feasts:
           December 2017-February 2018
    • Abstract: Dunn, Geoffrey D
      As with last year's reflections, it is my intention to give a distinctly patristic flavour to what I write, drawing upon the rich tradition of the church in the youthful flush of its earliest centuries, a time also of great challenge, to see the enduring relevance and beauty of the insights of the earliest Christian preachers, commentators and authors.
