"I prefer a Church which is bruised, hurting and dirty because it has been out on the streets, rather than a Church which is unhealthy from being confined and from clinging to its own security. I do not want a Church concerned with being at the centre and then ends by being caught up in a web of obsessions and procedures. If something should rightly disturb us and trouble our consciences, it is the fact that so many of our brothers and sisters are living without the strength, light and consolation born of friendship with Jesus Christ, without a community of faith to support them, without meaning and a goal in life. More than by fear of going astray, my hope is that we will be moved by the fear of remaining shut up within structures which give us a false sense of security, within rules which make us harsh judges, within habits which make us feel safe, while at our door people are starving and Jesus does not tire of saying to us: 'Give them something to eat' (Mk 6:37)." (Pope Francis, Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium (November 2013), #49)

 

Course: Film Lectio IV - “Good Will Hunting”

Touch Love in the Search for Identity

JGoodWillHunting

Starts Thursday 14 September
In this film we will reflect on the sources of our unique identity through the story of a young man's struggle to find his place in the world. Will Hunting (Matt Damon) plays the troubled mathematical genius working as a janitor at the University. The movie is a journey through the mind of Will Hunting as he is forced to endure therapy instead of jail. Sean McGuire (Robin Williams) is a brilliant, if unconventional psychologist, who challenges Will to uncover what matters to him most and the unique appreciation he has of the depths of the human soul.
