Quick Overview

By Peter J Cullinane

Bishop Peter Cullinane has been Bishop of Palmerston North in New Zealand. As a bishop he has been fully immersed in the pastoral, sacramental and administrative work of a diocese. His concern for renewal comes out of that experience, out of closeness to the people, and out of working with bishops nationally and internationally for over 30 years.

Bishop Peter was President of the New Zealand Catholic Bishops’ Conference between 1997 and 2003, and a member of the Episcopal Board of ICEL between 1983 and 2003. He has been awarded Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit for services to the community.

Product Description

Renewal in the Church is not primarily about topics and issues, as some so tediously seem to think. Those who think the Church would be stronger if it changed some of its teachings don’t seem to take seriously enough the experience of those churches that have already changed those same teachings. This book is written as a series of letters on renewal. But, these are not letters previously sent to individuals and now being brought together. They were written for this book. They have been called ‘letters’ instead of chapters to allow for their different lengths and the different levels of scholarship required by each topic. It also allows for a more personal style of writing. The chosen topics are all relevant to renewal, and the comments are limited to how they open up opportunities for renewal, or illustrate the ongoing need for it within the Catholic Church. This is an international Church which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the beginning of Vatican II in 2012. It is a timely moment to reflect on the Church and its continual renewal in today’s world.
