Audience with the Catechists on the occasion of the Year of the Faith
In 1941 Fr. James Norris was ‘called’ by God to enter the Holy Cross Seminary, Essedon, Australia and after Ordination went to work in Japan until retirement, returning to Rotorua his hometown in 2004. After a few meetings to talk about the faith, Fr Norris handed on his diary to Mark Baird in 2004 and after studying his dairy I decided to type up his notes and study his work because I believe it has great merit for the average person and the Catholic Church and it is our hope to eventually form a confraternity with the aim of serving the Church. This submission is called Sequilla Christi. Following Christ. The question is; how best to propagate this little branch of the faith, while keeping the diary accurate to the words and desire of Fr Norris and remaining in full communion with the Pope? We believe God was present in the passing on of Fr Norris’ diary in that action and remains in mediation to touch the lives of many other people for the greater glory of God. We live in the Church and the world, alive for God.
