    The Marks of the Church

    The Marks of the Church

    Each time we profess our faith by using the Nicene Creed, we declare that the Church is one, holy, catholic and apostolic.
    Today's readings from holy scripture give us both a reminder of and a source, in the inspired word of God, for what we profess.

    Evil Conquered By Glory

    Evil Conquered By Glory

    Today’s reading from the Gospel of St John contains a poignant moment of betrayal alongside tender instruction. The evil of the deed of Judas is in contrast to the impending glory of the Passion. We are also presented with the impending glory of the Second Coming of Christ.

    Communion in the Hand Pt 2

    Taking up the discussion once more about the recent practice of receiving Holy Communion in the Hand, this episode looks at some of the evidence we have about what was done in the early centuries of the Church and asks the question as to whether this is a convincing argument in favour of Communion in the Hand.

    The Good Shepherd

    The Good Shepherd

    The Fourth Sunday of Easter focuses upon the instructions of Jesus about His being the Good Shepherd.
    It is also World Day of Prayer for Vocations since we pray for  more young men and women to follow the Good Shepherd in those states of life that show to the whole Church, and to the world, the very essence of the vocation given to all of us through Holy Baptism. We pray particularly for generous young men to answer the call of the Good Shepherd to be shepherds in His name for the People of God.
    Also, Happy Mothers Day to all mothers!

    Heavenly Liturgy

    Heavenly Liturgy

    The reading from the Apocalypse (Revelation) turns our attention to the liturgy in heaven; that eternal act of praise and worship that is the everlasting bliss of life with God in heaven. Through divine institution, the sacred liturgy here on earth derives its existence, its purpose , and its structure from this heavenly liturgy. Surely, this is something which we must consider each time we go to Holy Mass. All of heaven is watching us when we are at Mass!

    ANZAC Day

    ANZAC Day is a day of patriotism as well as praying for the souls of those Australians who have died in war, whether military or civilian. We pray also for peace in our world, which is once more troubled by war and the threat of war.
