Prophetic Voices in the Call to Reform
The Church, says Pope Francis, “needs prophets.... it needs all of us to be prophets, not critics who don’t approve of anything, but one who opens wide the doors of hope”.
Prophetic voices challenge us to ‘wake up’, to trust and keep faith, to be courageous in the proclamation of God’s word. But the many complex issues of our time – social, economic, cultural, political and personal - offer no easy answers or quick solutions.
How is it possible for the Church to be the rock of Truth, and respond with an open and generous heart to the many challenges of the modern world? Whose are the prophetic voices who will truly wake us up and help the Church ‘revive what remains’?
During this all-age week we will listen to a range of prophetic voices: of women and men in politics, media and education; of young people; and of parishioners.
Through thought-provoking presentations, supportive discussions, quiet reflection, and creative and inclusive liturgies, we can all play our part as prophets of hope; listening to the voice of the Holy Spirit speaking to the Church today.
