Posted by SCMO on 19th May 2005 in Christianity |
...signs of Christianity in society;  "I think of the Christmas Nativity Scene at the corner of the Mound in Edinburgh each year; I think of that most wonderful performance of the Easter Play on the afternoon of Holy Saturday prior to Easter Sunday; I am aware of performances of the equivalent of passion plays such as Christ at Dundas ."  Cardinal O'Brien concludes with a reminder of how sizeable a group Christian churchgoers still are:  "despite talk of decline we do perhaps need to remember that according to the last National Census around two thirds of Scots still describe themselves as Christians. Churchgoers today are self-selecting, they opt to go to chu...

Rather, modern civilisation, although highly developed from the standpoint of technology, is often stunted in its inner depths by a tendency to exclude God or keep him at a distance."He called for, a "new evangelisation" which "must be marked by hope" and urged the Bishops, in their work, saying; "As shepherds of souls, you should never let yourselves become discouraged in your efforts to direct the whole of Christian life and the entire Christian com...

...roots of Christianity in Scotland. It is appropriate that this should be  the starting point for a brief reflection on the journey of faith our nation  has taken since Ninian brought the Christian message to these shores those  1600 years ago.

...ferent to Christianity at school.  The visit also continues during the Year of the Eucharist when the Ukrainian peoples are thinking of resurrection and new life brought about by Christ in the Eucharist.  Cardinal O Brien has had longstanding links with the Ukrainian people. When he was an altar server in St Columba s Parish, Edinburgh, as a young boy and then man, he vividly remembers the Ukrainian peoples in exile celebrating Mass in St Columba s after the normal Sunday Masses for parishioners “ until they managed to purchase their own church within the city of Edinburgh.  The full text of the Cardinal's homily in St Alexander's Cathedral in Kiev is show...
