Archbishop Fisher Dreams a Dream of a Catholic Future for Sydney

There will be some will count this his “I have a dream” speech. There will be others who will want to “tell him he’s dreaming”. 

Either way, Anthony Fisher’s first talk to the young people of Sydney at “Theology on Tap” since becoming an their Archbishop sets the bar high.

He starts with where he ended his Installation homily:

What will this Archdiocese look like when, God willing, I retire in 2035? My hope is for a Church in which the Gospel is preached with joy, the wisdom of our tradition mined with fidelity, the sacraments celebrated with dignity and welcome, and the seminaries, convents and youth groups teeming with new life; a Church in which our parishes, chaplaincies and educational institutions are true centres of the new evangelisation, our laity theologically literate and spiritually well-formed, our outreach to the needy effective and growing, and God glorified above all.

Listen to find out where he goes from there
