357 - Aug 1996 - How to overcome the shortage of priests, Fr Kevin Dillon PP
Only the priest can absolve sin in the name of the Father Son and Holy Spirit.
358 - Sep 1995 - Saints and heroes: where the difference lies, Lawrence Cross
The Church declares individuals blessed which means that it declares them to be human beings who now infallibly live in the eternal embrace of the Father Son and Holy Spirit filled with the light of God which shines through Christ.
359 - Apr 1995 - Catholicism: 'revealed by God, not devised by man', Fr Graham Leonard (former Anglican Bishop of London)
Dr Edwards says that we must use the minds given to us to make our own judgements about the truth: By the guidance of the Holy Spirit working through a joint operation between our community our reason based on knowledge and our conscience based on experience we have to say what Scripture or Tradition means to us in life and death.
360 - Apr 1995 - New Melbourne R.E. Guidelines: an improvement on the old, Michael Gilchrist
Right direction That the Guidelines are headed in the right direction is underlined by inclusion of the following kinds of statements: In Baptism the human person is cleansed from original sin and all personal sin reborn as a child of God sanctified with the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
361 - Dec 1994 - RE syllabus based on new Catechism: Wagga Wagga diocese sets pace for Australia, Bishop George Pell
and Mark Moriarty from Holy Spirit School Lavington as executive officer.
362 - Dec 1994 - An Open Letter to the Manly Seminary staff, Fr Brian Harrison OS
For the papacy to step inside that door (something which we know the Holy Spirit will never actually allow to happen) would be a leap of suicidal self-contradiction.
363 - Oct 1994 - An Anglican Bishop responds to Bishop Spong - defending Christian revelation, Bishop David Silk (Anglican Bishop of Ballarat)
As Stephen Neill wrote somewhere That Jesus Christ whom the Christian meets when he comes to Holy Communion who is made present to him in the proclamation of the Gospel in Christian worship to whom he speaks when he prays who speaks to him through the Holy Spirit is the same Jesus who was born at a specific time and place in history who lived a human life who spoke certain words did certain deeds and suffered certain things of which we have clear though far from complete knowledge.
364 - Apr 1994 - Making sense of 'Veritatis Splendor', Bishop Kevin Manning
The Church under the Holy Spirits direction continues to develop her tradition of moral reflection on the different areas of human life.
365 - Feb 1994 - Reflection: The Immaculate Conception: Mary’s unique holiness, Br Christian Moe FSC
Vatican II speaks similarly when it refers to the place of Mary in the Church: It was customary for the Fathers to refer to the Mother of God as all holy and free from every stain of sin as though fashioned by the Holy Spirit and formed as a new creation; and it restates the meaning of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception: The Virgin of Nazareth was enriched from the first moment of her Conception with the splendour of an entirely unique holiness .
366 - Nov 1993 - Preparing for a 'priestless' Church in Rockhampton?, Michael Gilchrist
Lest anyone question the good reason for the Mass-less weekend Rockhamptons theological expert Peter Young writing in his regular column in the Rockhampton diocesan monthly The Review (May 1993) declared: If the bishop after due deliberation prayer and consultation requires the withdrawal of the pastors from their parishes for a particular (in the bishops estimation) serious reason it ill-behoves us to challenge such a movement of the Holy Spirit.
367 - Oct 1993 - Eucharistic adoration - are we keeping up with the rest of the world?, Christine McCarthy
In the United States there are 500 parishes where there is perpetual adoration of the Blessed Eucharist - surely an inspiration of the Holy Spirit.
368 - Jul 1993 - Reflection: Eucharistic reverence: 'How our actions reflect our belief', Christine McCarthy
The first time I was sent onto the sanctuary with some candlesticks I was overwhelmed by holy fear what we might call in retrospect a healthy sense of awe in the presence of God one of the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
369 - Mar 1993 - Books: A review of the 'Catechism of the Catholic Church' (French Edition), Fr Peter Joseph
in the mystery of the Holy Spirits procession in the Holy Trinity (248); in the treatment of Confirmation where East and West differ about the ordinary minister (priest or bishop 1312-3) and time of conferral (at baptism or later 1290-2); similarly for marriage where the Latin Church sees the spouses as the ministers of the sacrament whilst the Oriental liturgies see the priest as the minister (1623).
370 - Mar 1993 - The Myth of Latin America's 'Basic Christian Communities', Paul Gray
The religious style of these groups emphasises dramatic personal testimony to the workings of the Holy Spirit and a dramatic lack of interest in affairs of state.
371 - Mar 1993 - Religious Order Leaders challenge Catholic structures
11 describes it thus: A diocese is a section of the People of God entrusted to a bishop to be guided by him with the assistance of his clergy so that loyal to its pastor and formed by him into one community in the Holy Spirit through one Gospel and the Eucharist it constitutes one particular Church in which the one holy catholic and apostolic Church of Christ is truly present and alive.
372 - Jun 1992 - Monika Hellwig visits Australia, Michael Gilchrist
During 1990 the Woodstock Theological Centre at Georgetown University became the hub of opposition in the United States to the planned Catechism for the Universal Church a project which Pope John Paul 11 recently called a further gift of the Holy Spirit to the Church (LOsservatore Romano April 1 1992).
373 - Apr 1992 - Sexist language: theological mumbo-jumbo, Frank Mobbs
The Glory be to the Father (Gloria) is to be replaced by Glory to you Source of all Being eternal Word and Holy Spirit .
374 - Apr 1992 - Whence Ecumenism? The Vatican and ARCIC, Michael Davies
He not only recites the narrative of the institution of the Last Supper pronouncing the words of consecration and imploring the Father to send the Holy Spirit to effect through them the transformation of the gifts but in doing so offers sacramentally the redemptive sacrifice of Christ.
375 - Apr 1992 - Problems of modern Biblical scholarship, B.A. Santamaria
He concludes that men and women were at least equally important to him; that since no preferred place was offered to men by ordination at the beginning and since the priesthood is simply a product of historical evolution (although under the guidance of the Holy Spirit) there is no proven Biblical/historical reason why women cannot also be ordained.
376 - Mar 1992 - Mary - Biblical focus of Christian unity, Archbishop Barry J. Hickey
In that context it is useful to point to a remarkable event the coming down of the Holy Spirit on Mary a woman.
377 - Nov 1991 - Editorial: When television told the truth, B.A. Santamaria
What the Holy Spirit was doing across twenty centuries to permit the Church which he was supposed to inspire to teach error was left unclear.
378 - Aug 1991 - 'Creative liturgy' - darker reasons beneath the surface, Fr Ephraem Chifley OP
There was no mention of the relationships within the Trinity of the Incarnation of the Holy Spirit or of anything much except Gods integrity and justice.
379 - Nov 1989 - Thomas More and today's crisis in faith and morals, John Finnis
In the Catholic conception of faith for which More died ones personal faith which one has by the grace of the Holy Spirit is only a fully adequate and appropriate response to that grace when it is a sharing in the faith of the Church.
380 - Sep 1988 - 'Putting the essence of the Faith in doubt' (Jean Guitton), B.A. Santamaria
The elements therefore have a dual essence - remaining bread and wine but impregnated with the full saving effectiveness of Christs presence (Fr David Coffey Grace: the Gift of the Holy Spirit p.
