The church here in Australia, is not defending anyone guilty. Its a place all Diocese need to reach. To say yes this happened,
we apologise profusely to those hurt and injured. We are doing everything in our power to pick our church and its body back up and get on with things.
And to provide pastoral care to everyone.
We have a Plenary Council in 2020. The issue of keeping children safe and restoring the church as a place of trust and faith to its people, is big on the agenda.
We all have a voice, we can all comment on the council and what we want it to do.
Today in the Homily, our Priest told us to write 200 words if we felt inspired by the Holy Spirit, to our Diocese. For the Plenary Council.
I bet Pope Francis will call a Plenary Council in USA and in Chile.
