Intervention by Cardinal George Pell at Synod

I feel glad that my concern over the issue of inerrancy actually echoes that of Cardinal George Pell, as recorded at the Synod of Bishops

Taken from the Official Bulletin (13.10.08):

- S.Em.R. Card. George PELL, Archbishop of Sydney (AUSTRALIA)

Bishops are called to clear the way for the Spirit to work effectively when the Word of God encounters individuals and communities. Hence the following suggestions:

  1. The formation of young adult lay teams to witness to Christ in youth groups, parishes, schools, and universities.
  2. The development of contemporary equivalents of the medieval Mystery Plays to bring the Word of God to the people. The W.Y.D. Ways of the Cross at Sydney and Toronto are two examples: also Oberammergau and "The Passion of the Christ" film.
  3. Develop and support online Catholic social networks in cyberspace such as XT3, Christ for the Third Millennium (www.xt3.com), a Catholic "facebook" with almost 40,000 members launched at Sydney W.Y.D. His Holiness Pope Benedict issued a short message to users on the September 8th.
  4. The development of a central Institute for Bible Translation so the Bible can be translated more quickly and accurately into local languages in Asia, Africa and Oceania. A collection to help finance the work of translation would be useful.
  5. Request the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith to produce guidelines on inerrancy in Scripture.
