Christmas greetings to members and friends of Catholic Social Services Victoria!
 
Thanks to Fr Andy Hamilton sj of Eurkea Street / Jesuit Social Services for his recent Christmas reflection on the challenges faced by people around the world: “We may give up our hopes for a just and peaceful world, retire from it as gracefully as we can, accept the victory of power, wealth and brutality, and allow hope to die within us. Or we can return to the Christmas story and to the hope that is central to it, and work and pray for the death of the new political order. This is the path of constancy, of faithfulness to little people in small things, of being a midwife in the hard labours of a Birth like Death.”
Catholic Social Teaching states that the ultimate purpose of the justice system is to advance the common good through establishing public order and community safety, foster reconciliation and restore harmony in social relationships disrupted by crime, and, protect the rights of both the guilty and innocent. 
 
Catholic Social Services Victoria has prepared a policy statement about the way our community could best deal with the area of criminal justice. 
 
 
The Victorian Bishops released a statement on 29 November 2016 condemning domestic and family violence in the strongest possible terms, and have called on the whole Church community to work together in preventing violence. "Our goal must be a society where all people are safe in their home, families and close relationships; where violence and abuse are not acceptable; and where all relationships respect the equality and dignity of each person. This is part of the Gospel vision of love and respect."
