Conversations Catholics need to have

  • 06 September 2018


What does it take to grow in conversation, even and perhaps especially in difficult conversation? Can contemporary Christianity get past the moralism and step into areas of pain?

In this final episode for the second season, Fr Timothy Radcliffe talks to Australian Catholics editor, Michael McVeigh. They discuss questions about Catholic identity, education and democracy.

Timothy Radcliffe is a Dominican friar and theologian. He is a consultor to the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace. He was director of Las Casas Institute for Social Justice at Oxford, where he is now on the advisory board.

Timothy is known for his views on things like homosexuality, divorce and remarriage, and the authority of women in the Catholic Church — areas in which he has pushed for open conversation and an embrace of difference — something which has earned him the description of being controversial.
