Straight in at number one

My first visit to Sydney city centre the other evening was with a small group of Campion students - we went in on Friday evening to find some of the city's homeless and to offer them food and friendship. This was a student initiative to reach out to the homeless in the spiritual abyss of a Friday evening in down town Sydney. We met and spoke with many people down by the harbour and in some of the main streets of the CBD. It was an attempt to express and share our faith. We met with openess and ease of conversation.
A sign of things to come - from small beginnings - the New Evangelisation.

Good on you Father! Glad you landed safely and to hear you are settling in. Oremus pro invicem.

Why do some Catholics think that it is only possible to work for social justice and care for the needy if one is anti hierarchy and pro make-it-up-as-you-go-along liturgies?

They only fain to be Catholics.
