    Mysticism: God's Initiative and Our Response
    2003 Confoy, Maryanne ; Groome, Thomas H. ; Horrell, Harold D.
    Within the broader context of the ministry of religious education, this chapter seeks to attend to the primary issue: God's initiative in our lives. Becoming aware of the love of God for each individual causes us to respond in love to God, and to each other.Neither catechesis nor evangelization is possible without the action of God working through the power of the Holy Spirit. God is, in fact, the one who inspires and sustains all catecethical work, and all who undertake it.

    Religious Life in the Vatican II Era: 'State of Perfection' or a Living Charism?
    (Theological Studies; 74 (2) ) 2013 Confoy, Maryanne
    Religious life has consistently played a prophetic role in the church; its post-Vatican II era is no exception. The failure of dialogue between those leaders whose ecclesiology is described as traditionalist and those labeled progressive continues to wound the Body of Christ. This article argues that it is in and through the dialogical living of their charism in service of the global church and society of the 21st century that religious offer healing and hope in and through their prophetic, ecclesial witness.

    Welcome, Inclusion, Attentive Presence: The Central Role of Pastoral Care in Catholic Health and Aged Care
    2015 Confoy, Maryanne
    Welcome, Inclusion, Attentive Presence: the Central Role of Pastoral Care in Catholic Health and Aged Care traces how pastoral care in Catholic health and aged care sits within a long tradition stretching back to the healing ministry of Jesus and the early Christian church, and was carried forward through the charism of the religious orders that established many of our present day Catholic hospitals and aged care services. While discussing the history and origins of pastoral care, the purpose of the document is to look to the future—the “why, what, and where we are heading” in pastoral care. Welcome, Inclusion, Attentive Presence: The Central Role of Pastoral Care in Catholic Health and Aged Care aims to assist a wide range of people working in and around pastoral care services. It is intended as a resource for ongoing reflection and discussion. In this way, it can guide decision-makers at all levels as they plan and prioritise pastoral services, and assist individuals and teams to continually deepen their appreciation as well as their practice of this vital discipline.

    Morris West: Literary Maverick
    2005 Confoy, Maryanne
    Often compared to Graham Greene, Australia's highest-selling author, Morris West was considered the first Australian author to truly crack the overseas market and he was also the first to create what has now become known as the blockbuster Australian novel - paving the way for well-known authors such as Colleen McCulloch, Di Morrissey and Bryce Courtenay. Maryanne Confoy captures the true essence of the man; the writer; outspoken Catholic and literary icon up until his death in 1999. In what can only be described as a poignant and passionate account of one man's life, this book describes West's childhood growing up in the then working class neighbourhood of Melbourne's St Kilda. It traces his adolescence, his Catholic life and his literary life - all culminating in his rise as our first international writer. This study encapsulates this literary legend's life in all its glory.
