Invitation sent to selected women by Archbishop Martin to the conference ‘Voices of Impact’.

Archbishop’s House,


Dear Ms. XXX
Pope Francis and the World Meeting of Families
The Holy See’s (Vatican) World Meeting of Families (WMOF), the largest worldwide family conference, is held every three years. This summer, it will be hosted in Dublin, from 21 to 26 August. Pope Francis personally chose Ireland for the conference and will be travelling to Dublin to participate.
For the very first time, the World Meeting of Families will be followed by a new and extremely important Women’s Leadership Symposium, “Voices of Impact: Women Leaders Shaping Global Change” on the evening of 24 August and the morning of 25 August.

This is a really excellent account of the meeting, written by Australian David Timbs.

ICRN’s identity and purpose

We are Catholic priests- and reform-movements working together for and toward a pastoral church.

ICRN is an international network of priest and lay reform movements that organizes pastoral dialogue-retreats to model and prepare the church for the future, to enable its members and invited participants to communicate and dialogue with one another honestly, to tell stories, to heal wounds from the struggles of reform, to give courage to all engaged, and to share energy, enthusiasm, ideas; and in some cases, to act.

Hiding behind decisions is a sign of weakness

This afternoon I am going to Dublin to attend the launch of Donal Dorr’s book, The Francis Agenda. I understand the book is published by Veritas.
That brings back to me memories of my own book of a few years ago, A Question of Conscience, which Veritas refused to stock in any of their shops. Of course they were fully entitled to do so; the shops belong to them, and they can sell, or refuse to sell, whatever they like.
