The potency of a blazing fire

Homily: Third Sunday of Easter (Year A)  
“Did not our hearts burn within us…?” When was the last time you could say that your own heart burnt within you? I don’t mean by this identifying when was the last time you got excited about something, as if this is equivalent to the feeling of elation when your team won the footy pennant. (Sorry Carlton fans!) Rather, the fire that burnt in the hearts of those two disciples as they walked with Jesus along the road to Emmaus might better be compared to the fire of deep loving affection that a couple of many years might still have for each other. 

'Facing fear with courage': ANZAC Day 2020

Friday 24 April 2020

Archbishop Peter A Comensoli 

This ANZAC Day thousands around Australia will stand outside their dwellings to greet the dawn in a different way. Physically separated, but united. For Australians of all faiths and none, ANZAC Day is special. We remember the spirit of sacrifice and the times when our whole nation came together, facing fear with courage.
