      . TWENTY-THIRD WORLD YOUTH DAY: STIMULUS TO A MATURE FAITH
      ---------------------------------------------------------------


      VATICAN CITY, 12 JUL 2008 ( VIS ) - As has become traditional on his apostolic trips abroad, during his flight to Australia Holy Father answered questions from the journalists accompanying him on the papal aircraft. The central themes of the interview were the forthcoming 23rd World Youth Day (WYD) and the situation of the Church in Australia where the event is being hosted.

      The Pope answered five questions, the first of which concerned the significance of WYD and the message he wishes to transmit to young people. Benedict XVI replied by recalling the theme of the event - "You will receive the power of the Holy Spirit" - and indicating that it is the Spirit that converts young people into Christ's witnesses. Thus his hope is that WYD may be a stimulus to participants to live their faith maturely, shouldering all the responsibilities the faith brings with it, towards Creation, towards society and in all aspects of life.

      The second question dealt with the problem of secularization, and the Pope was asked about his optimism or pessimism concerning the future of the Church in Australia . Benedict XVI replied by highlighting the enduring importance of religious experience. "God is in the human heart and can never disappear", he said. All the same Australia is - in its historical makeup - part of the Western world which over the last 50 years has seen great scientific and economic progress, with religion being left to one side. Hence it is necessary to find a way to excite a desire for the experience of God and to make this known to human beings of today, even in a secularized society.

      Sexual abuse by members of the clergy was the focus of the third question. Benedict XVI reaffirmed what he had said during his recent apostolic trip to the United States , that the Church in no way accepts such abuses. He underlined the need for clarity in the Church's Magisterium and for commitment in the formation of the clergy to prevent abuses happening again. The Pope also reiterated the importance of undertaking pastoral activities to heal victims' wounds, and of remaining close to their families.

      The fourth question concerned climate change, a topic of great concern in Australian society. The Holy Father indicated that he would be dealing with the subject during his meeting with young people, focusing on people's moral responsibility towards the Creation. He also made it clear that it is not his role to take technical measures - which is rather the responsibility of governments and scientists - but that the question of human responsibility towards Creation is of great interest to him.

      The final question to be put to the Holy Father concerned the Anglican Communion and his views on the forthcoming Lambeth Conference, in the wake of the General Synod of the Church of England's vote in favor of the episcopal ordination of women. Benedict XVI affirmed that he will pray for the participants in the Lambeth Conference that they may, in the best possible way, tackle the great question of faithfulness to the Gospel in today's world, which is the challenge facing all Christians.

      . MESSAGE TO THE AUSTRALIAN PEOPLE AND TO YOUTH
      ---------------------------------------------------------------


      VATICAN CITY, 13 JUL 2008 (VIS) - Made public today was a Message from the Pope to the people of Australia and to young pilgrims taking part in World Youth Day.

      In the English-language Message, the Pope explains how in a few days time, on 17 July, his apostolic trip to Australia to celebrate the 23rd World Youth Day will begin.

      "First of all", he writes, "I want to express my appreciation to all those who have offered so much of their time, their resources and their prayers in support of this celebration".

      After then recalling the theme of the forthcoming event - "You will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you: and you will be my witnesses" - the Pope says: "How much our world needs a renewed outpouring of the Holy Spirit! There are still many who have not heard the Good News of Jesus Christ, while many others, for whatever reason, have not recognized in this Good News the saving truth that alone can satisfy the deepest longings of their hearts".

      "Many young people today lack hope. They are perplexed by the questions that present themselves ... and they are often uncertain which way to turn for answers. They see poverty and injustice and they long to find solutions. They are challenged by the arguments of those who deny the existence of God and they wonder how to respond. They see great damage done to the natural environment through human greed and they struggle to find ways to live in greater harmony with nature and with one another.

      "Where", the Pope asks, "can we look for answers? The Spirit points us towards the way that leads to life, to love and to truth. The Spirit points us towards Jesus Christ. ... In Him we find the answers that we are seeking, ... we find the strength to pursue the path that will bring about a better world".

      The Holy Father concludes his Message by saying: "My prayer is that the hearts of the young people who gather in Sydney for the celebration of World Youth Day will truly find rest in the Lord, and that they will be filled with joy and fervor for spreading the Good News among their friends, their families, and all whom they meet".

      . WORLD MISSION DAY: URGENT NEED FOR EVANGELIZATION
      ---------------------------------------------------------------


      VATICAN CITY, 12 JUL 2008 (VIS) - Made public today was the text of the Holy Father's Message for the 82nd World Mission Day, which is due to be celebrated on Sunday 19 October on the theme: "Servants and Apostles of Jesus Christ".

      In the Message, which is dated 11 May, Solemnity of Pentecost, the Pope invites people "to reflect on the urgent need to announce the Gospel, also in our own times", and he identifies the Pauline Year as "an opportunity to propagate the announcement of the Gospel unto the ends of the earth".

      "Humanity is suffering, it awaits true liberty, it awaits a new and better world, it awaits 'redemption'", writes Pope Benedict, recalling that the current international situation gives rise to "deep concerns regarding the very future of mankind". In this context he mentions violence, poverty "which oppresses millions of people, discrimination and sometimes even persecution for racial, cultural and religious reasons, ... a constant threat in the relationship between man and the environment, ... and attacks on human life, that take on various forms and methods".

      "Is there", the Pope asks, "hope for the future? Or rather, is there a future for humanity? ... For we believers, the answer to these questions comes from the Gospel. Christ is our future. ... St. Paul understood that only in Christ can humanity find redemption and hope".

      The Pope highlights how "for love of Christ" the Apostle of the Gentiles "tramped the roads of the Roman empire as herald, apostle, announcer and master of the Gospel, of which he proclaimed himself to be 'an ambassador in chains'".

      "Only from this source can we draw the concentration, the tenderness, the compassion, the openness, the readiness, the concern for the problems of people, and those other virtues that messengers of the Gospel need in order to leave everything and devote themselves completely and unconditionally to spreading the perfume of Christ's charity in the world".

      Despite such difficulties as a shortage of priests and a lack of vocations, "Christ's mandate to evangelize all people remains a priority" Pope Benedict writes.

      "Let us cast out our nets without fear, trusting in His constant help", says the Pope. Bishops, "like the Apostle Paul, are called to reach out to those who are far off and who do not yet know Christ", he writes, noting that prelates have the duty of "willingly contributing, each according to his capacities, in sending priests and lay people to other Churches for the service of evangelization".

      The Holy Father encourages priests "to be generous pastors and enthusiastic evangelizers", expressing the hope that "this missionary commitment in local Churches does not diminish despite the lack of priests".

      The Pope calls on religious to carry "the announcement of the Gospel to everyone, especially to those furthest away, by a coherent witness in Christ and a radical adherence to the Gospel.

      "You too, dear lay people", he adds, "are called to play an ever more important role in spreading the Gospel".

      Benedict XVI concludes his Message with an expression of appreciation for "the contribution of the Pontifical Missionary Works to the evangelizing activities of the Church. ... May the collection gathered in all parishes on World Mission Day be a sign of reciprocal communion and solicitude between Churches. Finally, may Christians intensify their prayers, the indispensable spiritual means for spreading the light of Christ among all peoples, 'the true light' that illuminates 'all the shadows of history'".

      . PAULINE YEAR REFLECTIONS
      ---------------------------------------------------------------

      Saints Paul and Barnabas had evangelized the key cities from Antioch in Syria westward into Turkey in the cities we have seen. There they established the Church winning converts and ordaining bishops, priests and deacons to carry on the liturgy and dispense the sacraments.

      They rejoined the Church in Antioch in Syria and while they were there a controversy emerged regarding circumcision, the old covenant between God and Israel that foreshadowed the coming of Christ and the shedding of His blood and eating His flesh to gain eternal life.

      The right wing ultra-conservatives saw the importance of the Jewish tradition of circumcision and began to get confused that it was an essential requirement for salvation.

      Christ came and revealed all that is essential for eternal salvation and nowhere in His teaching is circumcision required or becoming a Jew first and then His disciple as the method and pattern of discipleship. Many Gentile leaders are reported in the Gospels who are called "fearers of God" and were great sympathizers with the Jews, some built synagogues. Jesus ate with them, healed their household members including slaves and children and many were His disciples. Jesus came first to the house of Israel but nowhere in the Gospels are Gentiles excluded, but rather, we do see them gathered around Him and treated like the Jews.

      The act of circumcision is an ancient rite that bonds men to God having their foreskin cut and removed and eaten by the rabbi in a ritual called metzitzah b'peh.

      Luke 2:27 relates that Simeon was in the Temple and inclined "to perform for him what was customary under the Law". This phrase implies Simeon was a rabbi who could serve as a mohel for a circumcision. The Jewish circumcision ritual is called Bris Milah or Brith Milah. A metal knife, called an izmail is used to perform the circumcision Chituch - excision of the foreskin (orlah). The second step Periah consists of stripping back the remaining foreskin from the glans and then removing all of it. Afterwards mezizah - the third step in which the mohel applies his mouth to the freshly circumcised infant's penis and sucks up the first drops of blood. "The traditional practice of metzitzah b'peh, . . . has its roots in the earliest history of the Jewish people . . ." Implicitly evident according to Luke's narrative, Simeon was the first communicant of the Eucharistic body and blood of Christ. After performing the metzitzah ritual of the circumcision Simeon's eyes were opened immediately recognizing and acknowledging Jesus as the Messiah. This echoes later on in Luke 24:31 after the two disciples en route to Emmaus ate the consecrated bread their eyes were opened and they too immediately recognized and acknowledged Jesus.

      The sacred commandment and rite of circumcision, therefore, served to foreshadow the coming of the Messiah and our need to eat His flesh and drink His blood.

      The Apostles convened in the First Council of the Church held at Jerusalem sometime around AD 47. After they discussed this matter in private St. Peter, Pope and Vicar of Christ stood up and spoke to all the faithful pronouncing the official teaching of the Church that circumcision and Judaizing of the Gentiles was not necessary and is not the path God revealed to sanctify converts relying on the earliest tradition of the infant Church.

      REFLECTION


      St. Paul teaches us to follow the Catholic Church in all she teaches as the guiding light on the path of salvation. No matter what part he may have played in the private discussion among the other Apostles St. Paul took a back seat and allowed St. Peter, the Pope to define the teaching and publicly proclaim what the Magisterium agree to be the truth and what is necessary for salvation.

      . TOMORROW'S HOMILY
      ---------------------------------------------------------------


      Memorial of Saint Bonaventure, bishop and doctor of the Church

      Today's Gospel teaches us that God keeps His promises. He promised Israel to love Him and his descendants for ever. In His earthly mission He goes from city to city to preach and teach, to heal and appeal, as a loving father to his children. Yet we see Jesus victimized by unrequited love. He loves, He gives and in return he receives no love, no recognition and the love relationship between God and Israel breaks down within certain communities. God upholds His end of the bargain. He always keeps His promises. But He also demands we keep our end of the bargain too. God never created nepotism. He did not call Israel, or Abraham, or Jacob and bless their heirs for ever and make them exempt from obeying the commandments or exempt from adoring Him and Him alone. Rather, it is the other way round. God's predilection for Abraham, Isaac and Israel means that they are all the more bound to the commandments, to adoring Him and only Him. Yey we do not see this happening when the Lord becomes flesh and dwells among them. We see Him criticized, rejected, snubbed, ridiculed, beaten, spat upon, unjustly beaten and condemned, crucified, kicked and flogged. Oh, Israel, your house has become a house of shame, betraying the One who bore you, loved you and gave everything for you. This is the sentiment of Christ in the Gospel. He tells certain towns that they are anathema, and that Gentiles with whom He never made a covenant would have treated Him better. Jesus is not saying this to be emotionally manipulative. He really means what He is saying because He is the supreme judge. Here in the Gospel we see God's salvific plan is not exclusive to one race, one ethnic group, not even exclusive to Israel, but open to all including those in southern Lebanon in the cities of Tyre and Sidon. So we already see God pointing the way to the whole world for all people everywhere to be saved.
