Monsignor Harry’s Musings

The website of the Australian Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of the Southern Cross has a new section in which it publishes the monthly musings of the Ordinary, Msgr. Harry Entwistle.

To access the first issue (posted for August but dated 21 July 2014), just click here or on the banner heading below.

Musings of the OrdinaryThe Musings and the monthly newsletter Australia-wide are intended as important communications media for the Ordinariate also in print form.

As the website states:

Some people do not have access to electronic communications and the internet, for a variety of reasons. Up until now most of the communications from the Ordinariate has been in this electronic form. The Ordinary, in an attempt to broaden the reach of our communications, has recently produced a small broadsheet called, “Musings of The Ordinary”. It is designed to be printed out and given to those who would not normally have access to this website. Please download a copy here and print out some copies to hand around. Keep a copy of Musings and Australia Wide handy to throw in the direction of anyone who asks you about your Ordinariate. This is the perfect way to provide that all important introduction.

    This document is of interest to Catholic Christians but I would scarcely regard it as the “perfect way” to introduce the OOSC, about which it says nothing, while criticising the Anglican church and Protestant Evangelicals for doctrinal inadequacy. This is not usually the best way to start, IMHO.

  2. Msgr Harry Entwistle says:

    EPMS – Thank you for your comments. ‘Musings’ is not intended to be a way to introduce the OLSC to a wider Christian readership but a handout containing supplementary catechesis for those who are already members but do not access electronic media. It is also intended to foster connections between the Ordinary and members who are widely scattered throughout the country. In order to maintain its intended purpose and avoid misunderstandings, consideration will need to be given as to whether there is value in posting future musings on the OLSC website.

      Reverend Monsignor,

      You wrote: In order to maintain its intended purpose and avoid misunderstandings, consideration will need to be given as to whether there is value in posting future musings on the OLSC website.

      I hope that you will continue to post your musings on the web site. Living in the United States, we don’t get much news about your ordinariate, your needs, and the challenges that you face — and the preparations for reception of the Church of the Torres Strait into your ordinariate, in particular, must be quite a challenge indeed! The information provided through informal channels is very helpful in directing and focusing our prayer for you and your ordinariate.

      May God’s blessings be upon you all!

      Norm.

    I did not intend to give offense; the website was quoted to the effect that one should keep “a copy of Musings and Australia Wide handy to throw in the way of anyone who asks you about your Ordinariate. This is the perfect way to provide that all important introduction.” Presumably Australia Wide alone would be a preferable option for this purpose. The website, on the other hand, meets a variety of needs for a varied audience.

    I think it is always handy to have some idea of what is going on in the mind of those in authority, be it through informal musings or something more formal. I would commend the practise and keep it in the OLSC website and the Portal as not everything published is to do with the central mission of the Ordinariate.
    I hope all continues to go well with OLSC.
