    Values, Virtues and Catholic Identity.Frances Baker - 2019 - The Australasian Catholic Record 96 (1):3.
    Baker, Frances 'Catholic identity' is a phrase with which we have become quite familiar in the last few years, not least with the development of the Enhancing Catholic School Identity collaborative research project between the Catholic Education Commission of Victoria Ltd and the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven. Several tertiary institutions including Australian Catholic University and the University of Divinity offer a range of units and seminars that focus on enhancing Catholic institutional identity.

  2. Reflections on the Readings of Sundays and Feasts: March-May 2019.Geoffrey D. Dunn - 2019 - The Australasian Catholic Record 96 (1):91.
    Dunn, Geoffrey D We continue where we left off from last Sunday with Jesus establishing the ethical foundations of the new Israel. Hypocrisy is really one of the most distasteful of human characteristics and in today's gospel passage Jesus confronts it head on. Hypocrisy is the real 'fake news', for it is nothing other than a sham and a pretence that we are something that we really are not, a contrivance that we are better than others when we are not, (...)

    What Price Loyalty?: Australian Catholics in the First World War.Jeff Kildea - 2019 - The Australasian Catholic Record 96 (1):25.
    Kildea, Jeff I am grateful to the Catholic Theological College for inviting me to give the Cardinal Knox Lecture for 2018, the centenary year of the end of the First World War, and to reflect on the way the Catholic Church in Australia related to and was affected by that war, a war that began in the same year that Cardinal Knox, in whose honour we meet tonight, was born.

  4. Nuclear-Free New Zealand and Catholic Moral Theology Interwoven by the David Lange Oxford Union Address.Christopher Evan Longhurst - 2019 - The Australasian Catholic Record 96 (1):45.
    Longhurst, Christopher Evan At the forefront of almost all governmental and ecclesiastical policies on peace and war is the question of what to do about nuclear weapons. While this question remains unresolved in the world today, New Zealand's response in the 1980s has recently gained traction again as the new Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty was passed in July 2017. New Zealand proposed its answer in 1987 when it enacted its 'Nuclear Free Zone, Disarmament and Arms Control Act'. The impetus for (...)

    Metaphors and Doing Theology: With Some Interpretations of Pope Francis's Manner of Doing Theology.P. A. McGavin - 2019 - The Australasian Catholic Record 96 (1):66.
    McGavin, PA In recent years a large component of my reading has involved difficult texts on theological method, epistemology, and neuro-psychology. What I present in this article in significant respects is a simplified conflation of this reading that contributes some original elements in a paradigmatic approach to 'doing theology'. For this reason, I generally do not engage in specific citations within my text, and instead include at the end of the article some remarks on some of my reading. My main (...)

    Beauty as a Formative Principle of Moral Living.Cormac Nagle - 2019 - The Australasian Catholic Record 96 (1):56.
    Nagle, Cormac This article outlines the following concepts: beauty in a philosophical sense: why we respect persons, creation, the environment, even animals that externally present as ugly, noting their magnificent structure, their survival apparatus; why we are asked to look for integrity beyond the external and seek and value internal beauty in others and in the creation, leading to the theological question: what role does beauty play that so delights us in beautiful persons, beautiful creatures, and objects in forming our (...)

    Is It Justifiable to Compel Performance by a Doctor in Violation of Conscience?: A Recent View Examined.Bernadette Tobin - 2019 - The Australasian Catholic Record 96 (1):14.
    Tobin, Bernadette Two years ago, a group of philosophers and bioethicists published what they called a 'Consensus Statement on Conscientious Objection in Healthcare'. The statement, called the Brocher Statement because the group met at a foundation of that name in Geneva, sets out ten points that should 'inform, at the level of legislations and institutional policies, the way that conscientious objections in healthcare is regulated'. The statement proposes a very low threshold for compelling the performance of a practice in violation (...)

    Peter Lombard on the Doctrine of Creation: A Discussion of Sentences Bk II, D. 1, C. 1-3.Brandon Zimmerman - 2019 - The Australasian Catholic Record 96 (1):83.
    Zimmerman, Brandon The purpose of this brief study is to ascertain Peter Lombard's understanding of what the Christian doctrine of creation means and his judgment about whether pagan philosophers were able to reach this doctrine through the light of natural reason. Lombard's views on creation set the foundation for thirteenth-century discussions of creation, since all the scholastic masters of Oxford and Paris commented on Lombard's 'Sentences' and thus recorded their agreement or disagreement with him. Lombard's views are of especial importance (...)
