Pope: Don’t be afraid of critics; seek out, share Gospel with sinners

Pope Francis

GOD isn’t afraid of getting his hands dirty, being inconvenienced or even scorned because he will do whatever it takes to save everyone from sin, Pope Francis said in a morning homily. “A true priest, a true Christian, have this zeal inside that no one should be lost.

Pope: No ‘magic wand’; evangelising takes hard work, trust in God

Pope Francis blesses family

BRING the Gospel to those who need it most: the poor, the frazzled and the lost, who wander the world without any guidance or protection, Pope Francis told pastoral workers.

Eucharist is a free gift, and the best of all

Archbishop Mark Coleridge

ARCHBISHOP MARK COLERIDGE is asking Catholics to reach out to the isolated and lonely this Christmas. AT Christmas time we think about gift-giving, and not only think about it, we actually give gifts.

randazzo, msgr tony new
