33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time

“And then they will see ‘the Son of Man coming in the clouds’ with great power and glory”

All of us know that we shall die. Many of us were brought up to believe that the world will end. Probably not many of us think about the world ending any more, but that reality is still there whether we think about it or not. Even scientifically, there will be an end.

Today’s readings speak to us about our own death and about the end of the world. They also speak about how to go on living when there is a lot of evil happening in the world.

32nd Sunday in Ordinary Time

“Sunday, 11 November 2018 marks the 100th anniversary of the Armistice which ended the First World War (1914–18).”

One hundred years ago, the guns of the Western Front fell silent after four years of continuous warfare. With their armies retreating and close to collapse, German leaders signed an Armistice, bringing to an end the First World War. From the summer of 1918, the five divisions of the Australian Corps had been at the forefront of the allied advance to victory. Beginning with their stunning success at the battle of Hamel in July, they helped to turn the tide of the war at Amiens in August, followed by the capture of Mont St Quentin and Pèronne, and the breaching of German defences at the Hindenburg Line in September. By early October the exhausted Australians were withdrawn from battle. They had achieved a fighting reputation out of proportion to their numbers, but victory had come at a heavy cost. They suffered almost 48,000 casualties during 1918, including more than 12,000 dead.

In the four years of the war more than 330,000 Australians had served overseas, and more than 60,000 of them had died.

Each year on this day Australians observe one minute’s silence at 11am, in memory of those who died or suffered in all wars and armed conflicts.

31st Sunday in Ordinary Time

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your strength and your neighbour as yourself”

Jesus was not the only Jewish religious teacher to connect these two commandments, love of God and love of neighbour. Both commandments were central elements of the religious tradition that Jesus learned from his Jewish community. Indeed, these commandments continue to be central aspects of contemporary Jewish religious understanding. Jesus’ response to his questioners proposed an integral connection between these two aspects of the Jewish Law. Love of God finds its expression in our love for our neighbour.

30th Sunday in Ordinary Time

In today’s Gospel, the blind Bartimaeus represents our collective human situation that is constantly yearning for healing and liberation from all sorts of limitations. More so, Bartimaeus is a wonderful example to us of someone who wanted something so much that he was willing to call out and ask Jesus to help him and to heal him.

The ‘blindness’ in questions might not necessarily be the physical loss of vision, but spiritual ignorance that limits our relationship with others, and with God.

Regardless, like Bartimaeus we must cry out to the Lord in faith: “Lord that I might see!” It important to note that blind Bartimaeus did not believe because he was cured. Rather, he was cured because he had faith in Christ who said: “Your faith has cured you.”

Do you know the five precepts of the Catholic Church?

26. Jun, 2017

Is Missing Mass a Mortal Sin?

Given how precious the Mass is the Code of Canon Law (#1246) proscribes, "Sunday is the day on which the paschal mystery is celebrated in light of the apostolic tradition and is to be observed as the foremost holy day of obligation in the universal Church." Moreover, "On Sundays and other holy days of obligation, the faithful are bound to participate in the Mass..." (#1247).

Therefore, the Catechism teaches, "Those who deliberately fail in this obligation commit grave sin" (#2181), and grave sin is indeed mortal sin. http://www.catholiceducation.org/en/culture/catholic-contributions/is-missing-mass-a-mortal-sin.html

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

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
