Churches are shunning traditional hymns in favour of more modern songs backed with guitars and bands. A world-wide lack of organists and pianists is partly to blame for the shift to guitar-backed music, but churches are also changing to appeal to newer tastes.

STATION XV

http://station15.co.nz/

Episode 139 — Cardinal, Pope, Politician, King (June 15, 2019)

Cardinal George Pell was convicted last December on child sexual abuse charges. The panel discusses his appeal process, which unfolded this month (without an outcome) and what might happen next. In Italy, changes to the translation of the Our Father have caused some consternation — mostly in English-speaking countries, where no change is expected. In New Zealand, a proudly Catholic MP has worn his faith on his sleeve in his first speech in Parliament, while the Maori King, visiting the Vatican, has invited Pope Francis to come to New Zealand. Maybe that can happen with the Holy Spirit's help, assuming said Spirit isn't too busy assisting drivers in Europe. That'll make sense when you listen to the show.

There are some heavy topics to cover this month, with Anna, Don, James and Gavin discussing the horrific Easter Sunday attacks in Sri Lanka, the heroism that emerged from the Notre Dame fire and the battle over religious freedom in Australia. Pope Francis has also issued new guidelines on investigating and reporting child sexual abuse. Do they go far enough? And this month's "light" story shows that even good deeds can sometimes have negative unintended consequences.

Brother Guy Consolmagno SJ is the Vatican's official astronomer and advisor to the Pope. He's been touring New Zealand this week and as part of his travels here gave an address in Christchurch. He's also a fan of the Southern Skies and included a stop off in Tekapo to observe the universe from, what he says, is the best vantage point in the world. He speaks to Jim about faith and science, why it's always been an important part of his life and what his job involves. He's passionate about the two disciplines working in unison particularly as he believes science keeps religion away from superstition.
