Corpus Christi: Parish Launch of the Plenary Council 2020
Plenary Council 2020 – Listen to what the Spirit is saying.
Pope Francis has approved the Australian Bishops’ decision to hold a Plenary Council in Australia in 2020 and 2021. It is a significant moment for the Church in Australia to make decisions about the future.
Archbishop Costelloe has been appointed as President of the Plenary Council by Pope Francis and as Chairman of the Bishops’ Commission on the Plenary.
In the coming months, as a parish community, we will gather together to listen to one another, to reflect on this question and share our own stories of faith, and our experiences of the Church. After we talk together, we will collate our stories and ideas and the questions we have about the future of the Church in Australia and give our submissions online through the Plenary Council webpage. This can be done as individuals, in groups or as a parish.
To prepare the agenda for the Plenary Council, all of God’s people are invited to reflect on the question: “What do you think God is asking of us in Australia at this time?” Find out more about the Plenary Council 2020 at the new website, now online: www.plenarycouncil.catholic.org.au

We can describe the manifestations of God as three distinct Persons. Our faith was revealed by God the Father Creator; by the Word of Truth who redeemed us through the shedding of his Blood; and by the Spirit of Truth who remains with us to sanctify us.
But even more importantly, we can make the Trinity an exemplar from which to model our lives. The Trinity is a perfect society. Each divine Person gives completely to the other, so we learn that we should give without reserve to each other. Also, there is complete equality in God. Each Person bows down to each other, to serve the Other. We learn that humility and service is meant to be the foundation of all relationships.

Is Missing Mass a Mortal Sin?
Given how precious the Mass is the Code of Canon Law (#1246) proscribes, "Sunday is the day on which the paschal mystery is celebrated in light of the apostolic tradition and is to be observed as the foremost holy day of obligation in the universal Church." Moreover, "On Sundays and other holy days of obligation, the faithful are bound to participate in the Mass..." (#1247).
Therefore, the Catechism teaches, "Those who deliberately fail in this obligation commit grave sin" (#2181), and grave sin is indeed mortal sin. http://www.catholiceducation.org/en/culture/catholic-contributions/is-missing-mass-a-mortal-sin.html
