OF THE HOLY FATHER
FRANCIS
ON THE CALL TO HOLINESS 
IN TODAY’S WORLD

---------------------------------

1. “REJOICE AND BE GLAD” (Mt 5:12), Jesus tells those persecuted or humiliated for his sake. The Lord asks everything of us, and in return he offers us true life, the happiness for which we were created. He wants us to be saints and not to settle for a bland and mediocre existence. The call to holiness is present in various ways from the very first pages of the Bible. We see it expressed in the Lord’s words to Abraham: “Walk before me, and be blameless” (Gen 17:1).

2. What follows is not meant to be a treatise on holiness, containing definitions and distinctions helpful for understanding this important subject, or a discussion of the various means of sanctification. My modest goal is to repropose the call to holiness in a practical way for our own time, with all its risks, challenges and opportunities. For the Lord has chosen each one of us “to be holy and blameless before him in love” (Eph 1:4).

WORLD YOUTH DAY 2019

-----------------------------

 

An invitation from Bishop Michael

Dear Young People of the Diocese of Bathurst,

Every few years, the Pope invites young people from around the world to gather with him for World Youth Day. Ten years ago, it was in Sydney. Since then, it has been in Madrid, Rio de Janeiro and Krakow.

In January 2019, I invite you to join me and the group from our Diocese as we travel to WYD in Panama City, via Los Angeles.

I can’t guarantee that you’ll meet Pope Francis in person, but I can guarantee you’ll meet young people from many countries. I can’t guarantee that the journey will change your life (though that could happen). I can guarantee that you will get a new experience of being young and Catholic in our world today.

Yours in Christ,

+Michael McKenna

Bishop of Bathurst
