Last edited 17th June 2009

Every now and then the Bishops hop on a plane and go to the vatican to have a good hard chat about the issues the Catholic Church confronts and work out ways to move forward. It is called the Synod and it was started about 40 years ago.

Meeting of the Holy Father Benedict XVI with the Clergy of the Diocese of Bolzano-Bressanone

Last edited 22nd May 2009

"Thank you for this family meeting in the beautiful cathedral of the Diocese of Bolzano-Bressanone. It is a great joy for me to be with its priests; in the end, the Bishop of Rome is the Bishop and brother of all priests. His mandate is to strengthen his brethren in the faith. Today, at this lovely celebration, we also perceive here in the cathedral and with this beautiful music something of the splendour of the Face of Christ, and pray the Lord that he will help us even on dark days to take this light of his to others, to illuminate the world and life in this world." -  Pope Benedict XVI

Chaput, Archbishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Denver, writes in his new book; Render Unto Caesar: Serving the Nation by Living Our Catholic Beliefs in Political Life. He’s one who is not refraining; his book has guidance for good Catholic citizenship and leadership. As Denver prepares to become the focus of American politics for a week during the Democratic convention, Archbishop Chaput took questions from National Review Online editor Kathryn Lopez.

Friday, 18 July 2008 - Meeting with Reps of Other Religions - Address of His Holiness at WYD08 Sydney

Last edited 12th June 2009

Yet religion, by reminding us of human finitude and weakness, also enjoins us not to place our ultimate hope in this passing world. Man is “like a breath, his days are like a passing shadow” Ps 144:4. All of us have experienced the disappointment of falling short of the good we wish to accomplish and the difficulty of making the right choice in complex situations.
