Order of Malta Australia


Recording: An Hour of Reflection with the Very Rev Danny Meagher



Very Rev Danny Meagher, Auxiliary Bishop of Sydney

and Conventual Chaplain Ad Honorem of the Order of Malta

Watch the recording: Reflection with Bishop Danny Meagher – 13 April 2024

We are grateful for Bishop Danny Meagher for providing a reflection last Saturday morning to members and friends of the Order of Malta. Bishop Meagher has been a Chaplain in the Australia Association since 2010.  

He poses these questions and answers them in an effectively structured, succinct and insightful manner:

  • What is the proper role of the State, as explained in the Church’s social teaching?
  • In the Church’s perspective, the State is good and has an important role. However, it must work to serve the common good and is always subject to the human person, family and the many smaller subsidiary groups in a society: clubs, churches, associations etc.
  • Is the State overreaching its proper limits today in its attempts to override the religious freedom of individuals, associations and churches?

The next session in the series “Hour of Reflection with a Chaplain”

will be with the Most Rev Charles Gauci DD

Bishop of Darwin and the Northern Territory

10.30am (EST) Saturday 25 May 2024
