Ascension Sunday

Pope Francis says that the mystery of the Ascension invites us to be in profound communion with the Risen Jesus, invisibly present in the life of each one of us. The Ascension doesn't indicate Jesus' absence, but rather it tells us that He is living among us in a new way. He is no longer in a particular place in the world as He was before the Ascension. Now He is present in every space & time, close to each of us. In our lives we are never alone. But it will be asked: If Jesus is no longer visible, how will people come to know of his presence? The answer is that he wants to make himself present through his disciples!

Prayer for the coming of the Holy Spirit

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the earth.

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

100th Anniversary - Our Lady of Fatima

May 13, 2017 marks the 100th Anniversary of the start of the Marian apparitions in Fatima, Portugal, where the Virgin Mary visited three young shepherd children, siblings Francisco and Jacinta and their cousin Lucia, once each month from May 13 to October 13, 1917. This came almost a year after the first of three angelic apparitions that appeared to the children and taught them about prayers, adoration and sacrifice. The apparition on Oct. 13 is often called “the day the sun danced”, witnessed by tens of thousands and people as far as 40 miles away reported seeing the sun dance, spin and send out colored rays of light. Throughout her apparitions, her messages to the children was always one focused on prayer, repentance and sacrificing for sins, and that peace would come to the world if people obeyed her requests.

Pope Francis will visit the Marian shrine at Fatima on May 12-13, during which time he will canonize Francisco and Jacinta. The siblings became two of the youngest Blesseds ever on May 13, 2000 when Pope John Paul II beatified them. The cause for Sr Lucia’s beatification concluded its first phase in Portugal earlier this year and is not being examining at the Congregation for the Causes of Saints.
Pope Francis also declared to be the Jubilee Year of Fatima for the entire anniversary year, Nov. 27, 2016-Nov. 26, 2017. Not sure how to observe this special time of Marian devotion? Consider choosing one or more of Mary’s requests made during her apparitions in Fatima:

Prayer the Rosary daily
Offer sacrifice for sinners
Consecration and devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary
First five Saturday devotion
Wear a brown scapular

To mums and dads!
Moora, WA

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

Never done this before!

Gettin there!!!

Nearly done ...

Holy Mary mother of God, pray for us :)

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!

The light of Christ, Jesus is Risen!

Thanks be to God!
