As we saw last
week, the Pharisees
try again to disconcert Jesus. This
time their question
is about their religious Law. Jesus
takes their question
at face value and
answers openly and
directly, going
straight to the heart
of the Law. When
we love God with
all our heart, we
will not sin. We
will love others
and do everything
we can to promote
love wherever we
From the Pastor,
Greetings fellow parishioners. Last Sunday we were very fortunate to have been
invited to a Mass with the Apostolic Nuncio to Israel and Apostolic delegates to
Jerusalem and Palestine. His Excellency Giuseppe Lazzarotto, Archbishop Lazzarotto you may remember visited us here at Sutherland in 2010 to conclude our 75th
Anniversary year. He was at the time Apostolic Nuncio to Australia. It was a delightful visit. Sunday afternoon saw us participating in the Way of the Cross along
the Via Dolorosa and finishing at the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre that place
where Jesus was laid and rose from the dead. Monday saw us at the Calvary Altar,
that place where Jesus actually died, followed by visits to the Mount of the Ascension, Churches of the Pater Noster ( Our Father), Dominus Flevit of all nations.
Visits also to Mt Zion, Dormition Abbey, the ‘Upper’ room (the ‘Cenacle’). Panoramic view of Old Jerusalem. We had on Tuesday the opportunity to visit Latin
Patriarch of Jerusalem His Beatitude Fuad Twal and celebration Mass in the CO
Cathedral of the Latin Patriarchate– Jerusalem.
We leave Jerusalem behind and travel north to Haifa and visit Stella Maris and the
cave of Prophet Elijah Mount Carmel. Then travel to Tiberius visiting Cana, renewing marriage vows. Visiting Nazareth and the synagogue, Basilica of the Annunciation and St Joseph’s Church. Mount Tabor and the site of the Transfiguration was a
wonderful experience. No trip to the Holy Land would be complete without a visit
by boat on the Sea of Galilee and visiting the church of the multiplication of the
loaves and fishes and Mass at the Primary of Peter by the Sea of Galilee and to conclude our Holy Land part of the pilgrimage the renewal of Baptismal Promises at the
River Jordan.
Next Sunday we celebrate All Souls Day. It will begin our month of remembering
our dear loved ones who have passed away. November Mass envelopes are available
for you to remember your dear loved ones and will be kept at the foot of the Pieta.
Just a reminder that only recently deceased and anniversaries will be published in
the bulletin during November.
A big Congratulations to Lal Barrett who will celebrate 90years of age on the 28th
