Our Australian team has just sent me a link to the Dominican blog post about our presentation at World Youth Day this summer.

It is interesting to hear our vision being spoken with a slightly different accent:

During WYD 2008 the Catherine of Siena Institute will be participating in the Youth Festival with a short presentation equipping young people for the discernment task to which they are called by the Holy Spirit.

Most baptized Catholics are aware that God has a plan for their lives, but need assistance in identifying how to read the signs the Holy Spirit is working in their lives. The Institute’s programs offer real and concrete assistance in this work of discernment and in understanding each person’s unique role in the mission of the Church. In the usual work of the Institute this is done through the Called and Gifted Workshops but at WYD 2008 the Institute will provide an introduction to this work of discernment aimed specifically at young people.

“Our focus will be discernment as a right and duty for all the baptized. Ours is another truly radical and authentic approach to vocational discernment,” says Clara Geoghegan, co-director of the Catherine of Siena Institute, Australia. The Institute is sponsored by the Dominican friars' Province of the Assumption in Australia and New Zealand with the involvement of co-director Fr Anthony Walsh, O.P.

The essence of this vocation is mission - to witness to Christ and the role of the Holy Spirit in our lives. Each member of the Church has a unique and irreplaceable vocation which will take into account their individuality and unique place in the world. They have also been individually and uniquely ‘gifted’ by the Holy Spirit to fulfill that vocation.

“The presentation will look at examples of how discerning and using our charisms can change lives and bring God’s love and healing to those around us. We will show how these gifts have been used in the Church by the saints – particularly WYD 2008 patrons such as Mother Teresa and Pier Giorgio Frassati – but also in the lives of ordinary Christians,” she said.

The Youth Festival presentation will look at the real clues in our lives: the Church, our uniqueness and giftedness, the context in which we live our lives. These are all important clues discerning our vocation and our mission.

“A final message we want to give the WYD pilgrims, is that God acts when we act. Too often discernment is perceived as something which requires withdrawal from the world,” says Clara. “In reality we only learn through doing and reflecting on the ways in which the Holy Spirit works through our actions. Lay people are called to live our their spirituality in and through the world” she said.

I've met a number of American Catholics who are going to be at World Youth Day. Any ID readers planning to go?

When the Canadian government established a series of entomological laboratories during the 1910s, crop protection was a domain where provincial governments were already busy providing technical support to local agricultural associations. The establishment of regional laboratories resulted from the adoption of the Destructive Insect and Pest Act in 1910, legislation that portrayed insect outbreaks as an interprovincial or an international problem under federal jurisdiction. The natural order conceptualized by federal scientists and legalized by the Canadian Parliament initiated a process of centralization. As the knowledge produced by the federal scientists reinforced representation of natural phenomena that legitimated their involvement across the national territory, the federal government concurrently achieved a political order by which it exerted its power over both nature and nation.
