Mass celebrated in Saint Patrick’s Cathedral for the 60th Anniversary of the Catholic Development Fund.

Wednesday 26 October 2016

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

As you know the story of the Catholic Development Fund is truly remarkable. Father Jim Wall and a group of priests with the encouragement of Archbishop Simonds drew on lay expertise and started the Development Fund, which expanded through a number of different iterations from the Schools Provident Fund to its present position as the major Development Fund in the whole of the Church in Australia.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

You will probably conclude from the Readings today that Saint Paul was a great teacher. His job was to tell people about God’s wonderful, limitless, complete love given in Jesus Christ. He even made the startling revelation, which he later verified in his travels, that Jesus is the Lord of all people and it is in having a personal relationship with Jesus that we come to know our own destiny and to follow faithfully the journey that God has planned for us.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

For this celebration of Saint Thérèse of the Infant Jesus I think it is highly significant that we remember that on 18th October last year Pope Francis presided at Mass in Saint Peter’s Square for the canonisation of Saints Zelie and Louis Martin, the parents of Saint Thérèse.
