"(Christ's Faithfull) have the right, indeed at times the duty, in keeping with their knowledge, competence and position, to manifest to the sacred Pastors their views on matters which concern the good of the Church.  They have the right to make their views known to others of Christ's faithful, but in doing so they must always respect the integrity of faith and morals, show due reverence to the Pastors and take into account both the common good and the dignity of individuals"  (Can 212 #3)

Catholic Voices for Reform was formed in 2010 at the time of Pope Benedict XVI's visit to the UK in order to give information about groups speaking out about issues that concern many of the people of God.

It is revived today, 2013, to enable networking and we hope that it will in time make links and information available about groups and initiatives worldwide.

To add interest, we are using stock photographs of people in various professions, trades, states of life etc.   The Catholic community of faith is far, far wider than just clergy, Religious, theologians and academics.  The voices of ordinary Church members are equally as important in discerning the direction the Church takes.  The Holy Spirit does not have favourites as St Peter came to learn (Acts 10: 34-35).     

Because it is more succinct we have used "A Catechism of Christian Doctrine" (1971) to give some sidebar stimulus to reflection and discussion.  With the aid of Roget's Thesaurus we have suggested a more modern wording, which again should provoke debate.   Please join the many on-line Catholic discussion groups to share your thoughts with others.

 

A devout Catholic

  • raises heart and mind to God,
  • gives help to those less fortunate than themselves,
  • practices self discipline and self control.
