Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The brief Gospel we have just read challenges us to worship God and serve him alone. His angels will protect us against the temptations which confront us.

Jesus challenged his followers and us to see the cost in daily life of being followers. When Saint Augustine said, “Late have I loved you, beauty so ancient, beauty so new, you were within and I outside”, he highlighted the invitation which God gives us to discover in daily life how he has loved us first.  Everything we love and do has to be flavoured and challenged by this.

Induction and Commissioning Mass for Marcellin College, Bulleen, celebrated at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, Melbourne

My dear young friends,

I am honoured to join your Principal, the staff and students of Marcellin College, as we begin another year at school dedicating our life and work to God because he is the author of all gifts.

A Catholic education is the realisation that every human person is unique, that we have gifts and abilities, challenges that we face, but while we are diverse and unique we are of infinite value before God and before people.
