    There has been great pressure on both of the major political parties to stop giving so-called rich retirees partial pension income.

    'It has been helpful to have the Pope offer the encouragement that there need not be any conflict between Christian faith and Aboriginal culture. But Aboriginal culture is often founded on religious beliefs which find and express God's self-communication outside of Christ and the Church's seven sacraments.'

    • Morag Fraser
