Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I welcome priests and people from the many nations who are here in Melbourne to offer this Mss for all of those who have come here, for all who now make Australia home, enriched by the gifts and traditions of their own countries and by the common endeavour which we share.
Today Jesus speaks to his disciples asking them who people say he is. Peter’s affirmation, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God”, is the watchword of our whole Catholic life.
