Growing Up Without Growing Away - Sr Mary Patrice RSM (Theology on Tap Sydney)

Last edited 21st April 2016

The 20's and 30's can often be a time of searching, uncertainty and worry: over faith, studies, future jobs and vocation. Knowing exactly how to navigate this time without drifting away from God can be challenging. Head to Theology on Tap on Monday 18 April to hear Sr Mary Patrice RSM address some of these issues under the topic "Growing Up w/o Growing Away". Sr Mary Patrice RSM (Sisters of Mercy) is a registered psychologist in the US and is a lecturer in the School of Arts and Sciences at Notre Dame teaching applied psychology and counselling.

Catholics and the Campus Cry-Bully Crisis

Last edited 20th April 2016

The U.S. Bishops’ 2004 “Catholics in Political Life” put it this way: “Catholic institutions should not honor those who act in defiance of our fundamental moral principles. They should not be given awards, honors or platforms that would suggest support for their actions.” There is a vast difference, for instance, between having Bill Clinton speak in a classroom or at a forum on modern politics and making him the guy who sums up your graduates’ education for them and sends them on their way.

The Humor of Salvation

Last edited 30th March 2016

The Catholic Church is criticized for sneaking an attitude of “merit” into her followers. We believe (so we are informed) that we can “gain” Heaven by some weight of action. The critique is best expressed as a sneer: “What, you confess your sins to the priest and, voila, you’re forgiven your murder, theft, child-molestation? Hike a trail, kiss the knee-bone of a Saint, and the grace of God floods into your heart?”
