The power of Power

Some folks look at the Church only through American and Vatican lenses, forgetting that we have brothers and sisters around the world shaping the reality we call Catholicism.

Here's an interesting letter from Bishop Pat Power, the bishop of Canberra and Goulburn in Australia. Bishop Power is responding here to a petition sent by two Catholic men to the bishops of Australia. Not only does Bishop Power have some good ideas - he has also tried to move the Church in a new direction.

The petition signing process clearly indicates that only Australian Catholics are invited to participate. However, you might want to send an email of gratitude and support, or critique, to Bishop Power. Here's his email address: pat.power@cg.catholic.org.au

UPDATE: I gave you an incomplete email address for Bishop Power. The corrected address is above.

Obviously, no one can promise that such efforts will result in change. On the other hand, it's doubtful that failure to try will bear much fruit.
