Timothy Radcliffe OP offered two talks at the National Council of Priests Convention in Warranambool in July 2012. The first, Breathing, is about living in relationship to the Church and the world. The second, Becoming a Leaf, is about how priests work practically in this task.

“We must refuse self-marginalization.
                We must engage profoundly with those who are different, with whom we disagree.
                We must free ourselves from fear and the impulse to control everything.”
Timothy Radcliffe OP

What Radcliffe has to offer may also have implications of hope for all members of the Church, especially for those in disillusionment or struggling with how to belong.
