What is Catholic Talk?

Our Vision

Pope Francis recently said “We need to see the light of hope and to be men and women who bring hope to others.”

Catholic Talk is a group of lay and religious people who seek to share our faith in the media and participate in public discourse with respect, humility, truth and clarity. We join all Australians in the search for a true and just society and offer a contribution from the rich Catholic tradition of thought and action.

We don’t speak on behalf of any bishop or diocese. We were brought together with the support of many organisations including the Archdiocese of Sydney to articulate a personal, relevant and clear Catholic perspective in the media and at public gatherings.

If you would like to talk to an official media spokesperson for the Church you should contact the relevant Diocese or the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference.

Our Values
Respect – we accept that people don’t always agree

“Our hearts and minds are yearning for a vision of life where love endures, where gifts are shared, where unity is built, where freedom finds meaning in truth, and where identity is found in respectful communion” Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

Humility – we believe nothing can be achieved without it

"No one reaches the kingdom of Heaven except by humility" St Augustine

Truth – we are motivated by what is good and true

“The Church exists to communicate the truth” Pope Francis

Clarity – we seek to be clear all we communicate

“We are not ordained, commissioned, or prepared to keep our message shrouded in darkness, or to store the light under the bushel for fear of the media and the greater public.” Fr Tom Rosica, Salt and Light Television
