Part of Homily of Archbishop Michael Neary for the ordination to the diaconate Mass of Shane Costello: In so many ways we are at a crisis point for religious faith. A decision for or against faith is required. This faith will be costly, but it is the conviction that the world is shaped, defined and formed by the power and reality of God. As you read the Acts of the Apostles, in scene after scene, you cannot escape the tough meeting between the Church and worldly authorities, because worldly authorities are regularly baffled by this new power of God and resentful of it.
