VATICAN CITY (RNS) Archbishop Mark Coleridge can tell you how frustrating it is to find a working printer in the Vatican, and who is wining and dining and snoring and boring. But there's a deeper goal behind his chatty posts.

    The Archbishop is a modernist.

    “History will have its way, however much we try to cling to illusions of timelessness.” …Archbishop Mark Coleridge of Brisbane

    A modernist believes that dogma and doctrine must change to accommodate the demands of the era; in other words Truth must always “evolve towards it’s perfection” through history.

    A modernist accomplishes this by changing language to weaken the verbal expression of truth and thus the full understanding of doctrine. He also subverts doctrine by changing the grounded disciplines and if possible the common practices that are derived from the doctrine.

    Pope Pius not only warned his generation. He warned ours.

    Having met Archbishop Mark a couple of times (once at my daughter’s school, again when he peformed my daughter’s Holy Communion and Confirmation, at Mass at our own parish which is governed over by Mark, and again at Mark’s own Mass at St Stephen’s Cathedral in Brisbane) he is truly a modern, down to earth, and very easy to talk to. He relates with the kids at their level, as well with the older parishioners and all of us in between. I truly love talking with Mark whenever the opportunity arises when he visits my parish of St Peters, along with our Parish Priest, Father Wrex. Both these men, I guess the only way to explain it is to say that they “have the touch” and truly represent the modern church whilst not forgetting the old. Mass is a truly enjoyable experience with both these men, so much more involved, as opposed to the old “fire and brimstone” masses I attended as a child. I am so proud and lucky to be a part of Archbishop Mark’s and Father Wrex’s parish.
