01Jul Bishop Vincent Long (Australia): “My hope for the Plenary Council”.

CatholicOutlook.org reports:

Bishop Vincent Long gave the annual Helder Camara address at Newman College, the University of Melbourne, last night, June 30, 2021.

“…The future of the Church, like the New Jerusalem that the exilic prophets often speak of, will not be revitalised by way of simply repeating what was done in the past. It will not be simply a restoration project or doing the old things better. Rather, we must have the courage to do new things; we must be open to the Spirit leading us to new horizons even as we tend to revert to the old ways…”

    1 July. How refreshing to hear Bishop Long acknowledge the deeply entrenched patriarchal structures in our church. A prophet in his own country?
