'ACTA is a national movement.. 'inspired by the Second Vatican Council, we work with others to create an atmosphere of openness, mutual respect and dialogue among laity, religious, clergy and Bishops; and together we seek to face the challenges of the world around us.''

How do or could we face the challenges of the world around us and of which we are necessarily parts since most of the challenges are effects that is they have been caused by the principles of the world, I mean human beings?
In his book called 'What is the point of being a Christian, the author, a Dominican Friar, Timothy Radcliffe wrote 'Christians are usually no better than anyone else. But the lives of Christians should be marked by some form of hope, freedom, happiness and courage. If they are not then why should anyone believe a word they say?' His words provide good materials for the answers to the main question 'What makes a good Parish?'
