Mass celebrated at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, Melbourne for Lourdes Day

Saturday 3 December 2016

Dear Brothers and Sisters,



Today with joy we come, united with our brothers and sisters who are sick, to touch the hope that our God offers us as we prepare to welcome him at Christmas.  The integrity and faithfulness foretold by Isaiah, the justice and fullness of peace for which we pray in the Psalm and the invitation of John the Baptist to ‘prepare the way of the Lord’, that all people may see the salvation of God, ring in our ears, as we enter this special moment of pilgrimage.

Mass Celebrated at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, Melbourne

Sunday 27 November 2016

My dear Brothers and Sisters,



Today’s Mass speaks about vision and generosity.  Indeed, in the words of the Mass:  “We wait in joyful hope for the coming of our Saviour, Jesus Christ”, we do have a vision of a world made new, of a new ability to recognise the spark of the immortal, which is given to each of us and can never be taken away.
