Quote of the Day

Christ set up a community, not a hierarchy, and that is the priesthood and church we must go back to.

That church was a humble church, it was a servant church; we need a different culture of authority. We need a culture of authority which facilitates people because the real energy now will come from lay people, not clerics. And I think where the renewal will begin will be with the lay people facilitating them as equals, their priesthood as well as the ordained priesthood.

– Fr. Harry Bohan
