20th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Poor old Jeremiah. Does anyone feel for him? Does anyone feel like him? Poor guy, stuck in the mud! I actually remember dreams when I was stuck in the mud, in the quagmire. You know what quagmire means? I looked up the spelling. But actually the definition kind of hit the mark for me. We are probably familiar with “a soft boggy area of land that gives way underfoot”? What about “an awkward, complex, or hazardous situation ("a legal quagmire"), or muddle, mix-up, mess, predicament, unfortunate/difficult/awkward situation, mare's nest, quandary, entanglement, tangle, jumble, imbroglio”? For me, that dream when I was stuck in the quagmire meant I was ensnared by the filth of my own sins. I tick all of the above!
No wonder Jesus says that he wants to bring fire! I was fit for it. But the thing is, with fire that is of God – that fire represents the fire of God’s love. If we let this love consumes us it will burn away every trace of filth, every part of us that was enslaved to sin.

19th Sunday in Ordinary Time
She believed! Equally by faith Sarah believed in the promises God made. Both Sarah and Abraham are models of faith who are examples for us. As they aspired we should aspire; as they were positive we should be positive; as they were resilient and virtuous in doing the right thing we should be resilient and virtuous in doing the right thing; as they searched for their homeland so we should be searching, in this life, for our homeland!
The readings are inspirational and aspirational, meaning we should aspire to do what our forebears did and with the same fidelity, lest we be caught short when it really matters. And that’s what the Gospel is all about, being ready for Jesus now.

Dear parents, if your children have not been baptised I invite you to have them baptised.
Would you like your children to experience the joy, the love and the peace of belonging to God’s family? In a few weeks we will celebrate the Presentation of the Lord known as “Candlesmass” because it recalls when Mary and Joseph brought their child into the Temple to proclaimed “light of the nations.” Would you like your child to be a light in Western Australia?
Why would the baby Jesus, who is not in a position to say yes or no, be baptised? If parents are supposed to provide their children with the basic necessities of life, what is more basic than one’s faith in God? Parents do not allow their children to decide whether they want to go to school, whether they want to eat the right foods or do chores at home. We make these decisions for them. Parents have a responsibility to initiate their children into their faith traditions.
When your child is baptised they become light for the world as they experience and learn to respond to God’s love. Baptism will introduce your child to a world of values and a new realm of freedom as children of God. Baptism is the doorway to a life of love and service unlocking your child’s potential to become that person you know they should be.
Getting your child baptised offers them way more than going to church or to getting them into Santa Maria or Mazenod. It introduces them to the life of God calling them to achieve their dreams and to live a life of fulfillment, joy and happiness.
I wholeheartedly invite you to bring your children to Jesus through baptism, to give them the gift of being sons and daughters of God, to introduce them to the values of the Gospel and have their sacraments recognized by any secondary catholic school that they may be fortunate enough to receive higher education! Please call to arrange the baptism of your child or children.
May God Bless You

At it again!
The year five through to seven children at St Joseph's made some amazing tiles and I wanted to honour their work
Here we go...much quicker than building the grotto
Next was to glue the tiles!
Then to grout them! The year seven class helped
And they got filthy! The grout remained in my finger nails for days.
These tiles are wonderful artwork
Now we offer the sacrifice of the Mass on them!! Well done St Joseph kids
Celebration of the Eucharist Moora style!

Resurrection ...the tomb is empty!
The light of Christ, Jesus is Risen!
Thanks be to God!
