Two corrections: Katrina inadvertently said it was the 50th anniversary of TOB (instead of the 40th) and she also said the future JPII came to the conclave in Rome - with an almost finished manuscript - to elect the successor of Pope Paul (she should have said Pope John Paul I).

Special Edition: Pell, Politics, and Prayer

Show Notes:

Hosts:  Peter Holmes

Guest:  Monica Doumit, Chris Lee

 

A Time For Heroes

"In this special episode we talk about how ordinary Catholics, Christians and Australians feel about Cardinal Pell’s trial and proposed changes to Abortion Laws in NSW parliament, how we can hold genuine hope for the future, and how we can respond heroically, personally and lovingly in this difficult time. "

 

The Quote Monica remembered was from GK Chesterton:

"The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him."

St Phillip Neri  is the priest who insisted on not taking ourselves seriously, and being silly to shake people out of a too serious piety.

Albert the Great did indeed have the nickname “Boots” due to his insistence on walking everywhere.
