11 Father Frank Brennan discusses the Plenary Council

Jesuit priest and academic Father Frank Brennan has discussed the first general assembly of the Catholic Church’s Plenary Council, which started on Sunday.

The first of two assemblies will be held over the next six days, with roughly 280 members meeting virtually from around the country.

“What I have found consoling, being an advisor to the group of 280, because we can’t meet face to face – on their webpages they’ve got little video clips they’ve done of each of them,” Fr Brennan told Sky News Australia.

“I have found it so refreshing, particularly the young people … expressing what for them it is to be a member of the Church. “

Fr Brennan noted being a member of a church is no longer “trendy”, nor “popularly expected” – which makes the meetings particularly important.

“So, if you are a member of a church, and particularly the Catholic Church, there’s something there that you’re looking for that you just don’t find in society at large,” he said.

“And the question is: how can that be done so that we can espouse what we think is the kingdom of God, that is good news for everyone – not just those who are members of the Church.”
