Christian-Jewish Relations - the Journey Continues

Tomorrow, in Australia, Catholics enter the Second Assembly of the Plenary Council (3-9 July 2022). It is a significant period of discernment and decision-making that follows four years of planning, meeting, reflection and prayer.

I wonder how the Plenary Council will lead us further along the path of Catholic-Jewish relations which began at the Second Vatican Council.

In the mean time, I encourage you to read some heartfelt words that capture the public and private dimensions of ecclesial change. They are from a presentation by Columban missionary priest Rev Dr Patrick McInerney SSC. Through a blend of scholarship and human story, Patrick relates some of his personal journey of walking the path of Christian-Jewish reconciliation.

To access his paper, go to the website of the Australian Council of Christians and Jews.

See too a brief introductory article at the website of Catholic Religious Australia.

With thanks to Fr Patrick McInerney SSC, the Columbans, and the Council of Christians and Jews of New South Wales, for sharing his presentation with a wider audience.
