About this Blog



This blogsite is named after the book "Crossing the Threshold of Hope" by pope John-Paul II.

Here is a place where young Singapore Catholics can post write-ups about the Catholic Church, so that ideas can be shared and discussed. It started when Nick mentioned to me an idea for a blog, and I thought that hey why not just do it? So here it is! Do note that to post, you have to be registered on this blog; please just tell us on the tagboard if you wish to be registered. Feel free to post comments as well.

While the quality of the articles here may not be the best, this should be forgiven - all writers improve with time. Instead, I hope everyone can share with open hearts on issues which are important to you. We pray that the pieces here will be spirit-filled, thought provoking, and action inspiring.

Indeed, to follow up with what chris yeo said. This idea was mooted a while back, but like all great ideas, we often wait too long or wait for someone else to start it. But it will come evetually.

I suppose we can write about anything in this blog, particularly those that concerns the church. Although some of them could be criticisms. However, I suppose if these criticisms could lead to constructive consequences or deeper understandings of doubts, it could only be for the better.

Whatever the topic, whatever the comments, let us do it with a single-mindedness that it might benefit someone or for ourselves, but most importantly it could lead to the evangelitical movement that is sorely lacking in our lives right now.

With love,

Greetings and Thanks

I am grateful to have been invited to this blog.

When I first mooted the idea, it was with a view towards providing our friends stuggling to live the faith in the uni to working world transition make some sense of their experience. I had hoped that by sharing our own reflections and experiences, we might help others see that they are not alone in their struggles.

I had also hoped to have talented writers use their gifts to help, even in this tiny way, the Church's apostolate to young adults on the cusp of full participation in that sometimes quite frighful thing called the world .

Good articles are really the result of two things: thoughtful & prayerful reflection, and hard work (especially in terms of study, research, & editing). It is my hope that we will see good material here both on the local Catholic Church, and the universal Church.

This blog should serve as a stimulus for further study and deeper reflection. If even one of every two viewers of this blog are thus stimulated, I will be satisfied.

My thanks to you for reading this.

God goes before you, and walks beside you. Go in peace.
