GOOD READS AND NOTICES
Pope Francis MISERICORDIAE VULTUS (The Face of Mercy) a necessary read, can be downloaded or ordered from Pauline’s or any Catholic bookstore. Most shops have a range of publications on the Year of Mercy and Pope Francis’s writings. The book referred to by Fr Austen in the Southern Cross which Pope Francis found so inspiring is MERCY by Kardinal Kasper published by Paulist Press, New York.
Get MARFAM’s FAMILY MATTERS, No 1 for 2016 now. Mercy is explored in different ways. YOM Team coordinated by Fr Larry Kaufmann CssR addresses THE YEAR OF MERCY AND THE FAMILY. Also see other current MARFAM publications.
Another MERCY MATTER. The Catholic Parliamentary Liaison Office will host Holy Mass at St Mary’s Cathedral on Monday, 1st February 2016 at 13h10, to mark the anniversary of the passage through Parliament of the Choice on Termination of Pregnancy Act, and to pray for a change of heart on the part of all who disregard the rights of unborn children. Since 1997, many thousands of unborn children have been killed, their dignity and humanity counting for nothing. How will other dioceses or parishes or families mark this day?
