2nd Sunday of Easter - 2014

Written by

Today we celebrate not only the Octave of Easter and Divine Mercy Sunday but we also celebrate the canonisation of two outstanding popes of the last century.

Faithbook---150Ten days before Easter a friend of mine started to post the countdown towards the Feast of the Resurrection on his Facebook page. Somehow I was struck by this simple gesture as it reminded me to ponder a bit deeper on the Feast. In actual fact, we were already given 40 days of Lent for the proper preparation which also marks the importance of these days.

May I just invite you to pause a moment and to ask yourself: Now, after the feast, how do I feel the joy of Easter?

Palm Sunday

As Christians everywhere prepare to commemorate the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem and enter into Holy Week, I could not help but think of the paradox of these upcoming religious celebrations almost colliding with one of humanities darkest days.

In the National Rugby League’s (NRL) Footy Show, a slightly irreverent show about the players of the NRL, they have a segment where they ask the wives or girlfriends of the NRL players questions and then try to match their answers with their partner’s.

'Missing in Mark Foy's' - A Lenten Reflection

Written by

Mark Foys entrance---150When I was a pre-school child, my mother used to take my sister, Yvonne, and I shopping in Mark Foy's. Mark Foy's was a big, exciting department store diagonally opposite the Hyde Park entrance to Museum Station in Sydney's CBD. The building was a marvel to behold from the outside. With its turrets and decorative finishes, it looked a bit like Uncle Scrooge McDuck's mansion. However, it was the interior that really captured the imagination of a little three-year old boy: All the floors in the store opened onto a big, central atrium, and, reaching from the basement to the top floor stood an aviary full of live birds, budgerigars, I think. What a place to let one's imagination run wild! And on one visit to Mark Foy's, my imagination really did run wild: I got lost.

Seventh Sunday in Ordinary Time

Written by

One Jewish philosopher once said, “If we followed the law ‘an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth’, we would all end up blind and toothless.”

glasses---150Adjacent to the Epworth Hospital in Richmond, Melbourne, is an eye clinic run by Dr Medownick. Dr Medownick treats eyes in a special way, and most of his patients experience a great improvement in their sight. In the foyer of his clinic is an elephant made from basket-weave. There is an opening in its back. Satisfied patients are invited to place the glasses they no longer have use for in the elephant, for distribution in needy areas. The elephant fills quickly.

Recently while reading the Gospel story about Jesus' reception in his home town, I found myself thinking about Dr Medownick.
