discerning "the signs of the times" (Pope John XXIII, 1963)


On June 4, 2013 three Australian bishops, Geoffrey Robinson, Bill Morris, and Pat Power officially launched a world-wide petition drive calling for an Ecumenical Council inclusive of the laity to put God's house in order (in fact, the petition had been unofficially circulated for several weeks).
