When Peter Henriot SJ first published (with Joe Holland) his book Social Analysis, the Cold War and liberation theology were at their peak. The basic tool of the "pastoral circle" articulated in this book became a benchmark presentation of a methodology used by thousands of conscientious Catholics worldwide. The Cold War has since ended and social justice appears to be on the retreat in Australia. Is this practical approach to doing justice still relevant in today's age of globalisation and terror? How might we apply it to the Australian context? Can this tool be refashioned as a universal model of social action for all?
