13th Sunday in Ordinary time, 26 June 2016

From the Dean’s desk

Dear Friends,

With today’s Gospel [Luke 9:51-62] we come to an important and crucial section of Luke’s story.  Here Jesus makes a sincere resolution to journey to Jerusalem, knowing full well what awaits him there – persecution, imprisonment, suffering, death and resurrection.  He has already spoken about this to his disciples [cf Last week’s gospel – Luke 9:22 -24], in the hope that they will understand that what he is saying may make an impression on their lives.

12th Sunday in Ordinary time, 19 June 2016

From the Dean’s desk

Dear Friends,

We have a little over two weeks left until we face the polls for the Federal election on July 2nd. After what seems to have been a very long campaign no doubt from here in we will continue to hear a great deal from the individual candidates and the various parties regarding their policies and vision for the nation and its future. Accompanying this will be an endless number of surveys and opinion polls throughout the nation with various questions asking for people’s appraisal of both the candidates and policies. The candidates will be looking forward with anticipation to see how they are being perceived by the public, no doubt with slogans such as ‘the only poll that matters is the one on election day!’ Political candidates are forever seeking the opinions of the public and how they are reflected in the eyes of the voters. They make the necessary adjustments according to these polls and surveys.

11th Sunday in Ordinary Time, 12 Jun 2016

From the Dean’s desk

Dear Friends,

The liturgy today challenges us to see the depth and vitality of God’s forgiving love for us. All three readings speak to us about the mystery of God’s forgiveness of our sins.  They speak also of the way in which we are required to recognise our faults and then once forgiveness is given, to appreciate the change of life to which we are called – a life of love and service.
