Statement from Bishop Leslie Tomlinson – re Response to the conviction of Cardinal Pell

I fully note the outcome of the most recent court proceedings regarding Cardinal George Pell.

I again offer my prayers and condolences to survivors and their families who are experiencing distress during the ongoing public examination of abuse in the Church.

The full process of the law is yet to be concluded regarding Cardinal George Pell as we are aware that he is making an appeal against his conviction.

There will be no further comment until the conclusion of the Cardinal’s appeal.

28 Apr
The Gospel of John with Fr Brian Boyle
Date 28.04.2020 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The Gospel of John has been famously described as A magic pool in which an infant can paddle and an elephant can swim.” (Prof Frank Moloney SDB).

During Holy Week, on Easter Sunday and during the Easter Season that lead towards Pentecost, we will be listening to the Gospel of John. Composed in stages, decades after the Gospels of Mark, Matthew and Luke, for communities living far from the land where Jesus was born, the Gospel of John was written for people whose faith in Jesus was fragile but growing and others of no faith at all. Although they hadn’t seen or heard Jesus for themselves, they too were on the journey towards being his disciples.

 

Fr Brian Boyle is a priest of the Sandhurst Diocese. He has been trained in the interpretation of scripture and has an ongoing interest in Adult Faith Education and Faith Development. Fr Brian is author of the popular ‘A Friendly guide to the Prophets’.
