dvd-cover-350We are happy to announce the launch of a DVD, Contemplate the Face of Christ.

In planning the Year of Grace, the Australian Catholic Bishops were inspired by Pope John Paul II's letter, Novo Millennio Ineunte (At the Start of the New Millennium). They responded particularly to two phrases in that letter: "Starting afresh from Christ", which has been incorporated into the Year of Grace logo, and "Contemplate the face of Christ". This DVD is one way that we have sought to respond to the Pope's invitation.

The DVD lasts a little over 30 minutes. It consists of 32 images sourced from Australia and, as you will see from a small selection of them reproduced here, they are in a variety of forms – paintings, drawings, icons, Indigenous images, stained glass, statues, etc. Each image is on the screen for about 50 seconds, accompanied by a quiet, meditative soundtrack. The images can be viewed either on their own, or accompanied by a short text from the New Testament.

A complimentary copy of the DVD is being sent to every parish in the country, and to the Year of Grace coordinator in every diocese.
