Mass at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, Melbourne

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Readings today give us a compelling introduction with Jesus as the great healer. After the cure of Peter’s mother-in-law, people bring their sick and come crowding around the door.

In the first Reading there again are remarkable illustrations of human suffering, so much so the urges and challenges that come across our life seem almost overpowering.

Dear Friends,
 
The late Benedictine Cardinal Basil Hume of Westminster when asked what makes a good homily gave the following advice: ‘first there must be a good beginning, secondly a suitable ending and thirdly the two should be as close together as possible’! Well, I will leave it to you to judge if I have taken his advice today!

Red Mass celebrated by Archbishop Denis Hart at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral, Melbourne

My dear Brothers and Sisters,

A very warm welcome to this Red Mass of the Holy Spirit, in which we implore the grace of God upon all in the legal profession. 

I recognise particularly distinguished judges and magistrates, barristers and solicitors, members of legal staff, and their families, as we come to implore God’s help in the important equity, administration of the law and compassionate decisions that we make for the good of people.
