    Euthanasia-the Right to Die Well and Beautifully?: A Theological Plea.Joseph Lam - 2017 - The Australasian Catholic Record 94 (2):167.
    Lam, Joseph Peter Fitzsimons is a competent journalist who does not shy away from expressing his personal opinion on controversial social and ethical issues. In a Sydney Morning Herald online comment published on 11 December 2016, he not only praised the courage of the premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews, but also appealed to members of the New South Wales parliament to follow Andrews' lead to legalise euthanasia. Anticipating the eventual collapse of his own health in the future, Fitzsimons insisted that (...)

    Friendship and Synodality: An Ecclesiological Suggestion on the Eve of the Australian Plenary Council 2020.Joseph Lam - 2020 - The Australasian Catholic Record 97 (2):156.
    Since Pope John Paul II's visit to Australia, in 1986, the face of the Australian Catholic Church has changed dramatically. The once celebrated 'comfortableness at calling themselves Catholics', has given way to shame and calamity caused by hundreds of moral and sexual misconduct cases. The Australian Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse not only challenges the church's governance. It also questions certain practical aspects of ecclesiology, for example, the priestly celibacy or the seal of confession that might (...)

    Humilitas Iesu Christi as Model of a Poor Church: Augustine's Idea of a Humble Church for the Poor.Joseph Lam - 2016 - The Australasian Catholic Record 93 (2):180.
    Lam, Joseph In an audience for journalists shortly after his election in 2013 Pope Francis revealed not only the reason for his choice of name, but also his vision of the church: 'Francis of Assisi. For me he is the man of poverty, the man of peace, the man who loves and safeguards creation... He is the man who gives us this spirit of peace, the poor man... Oh, how I wish for a Church that is poor and for the (...)

    Medieval Augustinism as the Source of Modern Illness?: Etienne Gilson's Thomistic Realism Vs Idealistic Augustinism.Joseph Lam - 2020 - The Australasian Catholic Record 97 (1):59.
    Being questioned about the nature of Christian faith, Mark Twain famously declared it as 'believing what you know ain't so'. Indeed, the role of reason for faith is a matter of dispute. Jesus, some argue, was not a philosopher or a teacher of wisdom. Rather, he is the saviour because of his unassuming sacrificial death and resurrection. Not reason, but the leap of faith is the ultimate condition of salvation. The Enlightenment however epitomises a Copernican revolution in favour of reason. (...)

    Mercy, Happiness and Human Growth in the Teaching of Pope Francis.Joseph Lam - 2016 - The Australasian Catholic Record 93 (4):435.
    Lam, Joseph On 11 April 2015 Pope Francis called for a special of Year of Mercy, which subsequently was symbolically inaugurated with the opening of the Holy Doors of the Basilicas of St Peter and of St John in Rome on 8 December. According to the Argentinian Pontiff, upon whose episcopal ministry is placed the maxim miserendo atque eligendo, mercy is the key element leading to the rediscovery of the spiritual joy that appears to have faded away in the life (...)

    Pope Benedict's Resignation: A Step Consistent with His Spiritual Theology?Joseph Lam - 2013 - The Australasian Catholic Record 90 (2):222.
    Lam, Joseph The resignation of Pope Benedict XVI caught the world by surprise, in spite the fact that he had earlier indicated this possibility. In a series of interviews that were published in 2011 as a book by the German journalist Peter Seewald, Benedict clearly stated: If a pope clearly realizes that he is no longer physically, psychologically and spiritually capable of handling the duties of his office, then he has a right and, under some circumstances, also an obligation to (...)

    'The Joy of the Gospel': Reading Pope Francis's Evangelii Gaudium with St Augustine.Joseph Lam - 2018 - The Australasian Catholic Record 95 (3):304.
    Lam, Joseph The election of Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio on the evening of 13 March 2013 stunned as many Vatican observers as had the resignation from the Chair of St Peter announced by Pope Benedict XVI during the ordinary consistory of cardinals at the Vatican on 11 February that year. While the Vaticanisti expected a younger pope, the seventy-six year old Archbishop of Buenos Aires emerged from the conclave as the 266th pope and successor of the ageing German pope. However, the (...)

    'We Proclaim the Crucified Christ' : Being, Truth, Beauty and the Cross According to Joseph Ratzinger.Joseph Lam - 2015 - The Australasian Catholic Record 92 (4):419.
    Lam, Joseph The reception of Augustine's theology and thoughts in Thomas Aquinas's works has never been a point of serious disagreement among scholars. What divides scholars is rather the question of how to assess the weight of Aristotelian influence and Thomas's Augustinian heritage. According to Gilson, the answer is evident in itself. While acknowledging in the works of the Dominican friar a close familiarity with Augustine's theology, the French philosopher nevertheless argued for a distinct Aristotelian colour in Thomas's philosophical approach (...)
