Love’s Urgent Longings: Wrestling with belief in today’s Church

Book Love’s Urgent Longings: Wrestling with belief in today’s Church, the latest offering from Bishop Geoffrey Robinson (pictured), was launched by Michael Whelan SM in the Crypt of St Patrick’s Church in the Rocks, Sydney.

The text of Michael's talk: A PILGRIM’S PROGRESS: RECLAIMING A RICH TRADITION a great introduction to this work from one of Australia's more adventurous Church leaders in recent times.

This book, published by John Garratt Publishing, Melbourne, presents the story of a spiritual journey made over the past few years by Bishop Robinson.

In seeking answers to the urgent longings of the title, he goes back to basics to encounter the spiritual, to consciously respond to the force of his deepest desires and to understand the ways that move him towards higher goals. This is an intensely personal journey, but one that is likely to resonate with many Catholics. It follows Bishop Robinson’s explosive Confronting Power and Sex in the Catholic Church: Reclaiming the Spirit of Jesus, which offered a critique of the Church’s use and misuse of power.
