The Communion of Saints by Paul Kelly
What is the Communion of Saints and why are they able to help us?

Scriptures by Dr Peter Christofides
As Catholics scripture is overlooked and taken for granted. However, sometimes we forget that famous quote by St Augustine, “Ignorance of Scripture is an ignorance of Christ”. There is much beauty that can be found in the bible.

  • Authority and Typology of Scriptures
  • Why is reading scripture important
  • What are some tips on how to read scripture
  • Is it permissible as a Catholic to pick up the bible and come up with our own interpretations

The Eucharist by Fr. Mariusz Grzech

The Eucharist is considered to be the source and summit of the Christian life. If this is true why are so many young adults not attending church? It is really important to understand what actually happens at Mass and what this means to us as children of God.

  • Eucharist is the True Presence of Christ
  • How is the Mass a re-presentation of Christ’s sacrifice that happened on Calvary over 2000 years ago?
  • Linking the Passover to the Passion to the Mass

Lumen Gentium: The Nature and Mission of the Church in the Modern World by Marco Ceccarelli

In one of its most important documents, Lumen Gentium (Light of the Nations), the Second Vatican Council clearly laid out the Church’s own self-understanding, its nature and purpose in the modern world. Rather than a focus on hierarchy, defence and introversion, Lumen Gentium spoke of unity, mission, the laity, the call to holiness, the Church as the Body of Christ and as the People of God.

  • How is this document relevant to us as young people in the world today?
  • What is our calling?
  • What is our mission?
