From Father Nev

17-9-17 – Gifted and called to be faithful

Thanks everyone for your contributions towards the Annual Catholic Campaign. This week we say goodbye to another long-time parishioner John Jeffcoat. His funeral mass will be held at 10am, Mon,18th September @ Holy Family Church.

This week I watched a movie called Gifted. It looks at the issues of raising a child with exceptional natural gifts. An uncle is looking after his talented niece and wrestles with the idea of giving her a “normal upbringing” versus a regimental lifestyle of academic study. A normal upbringing in essence meant socialising with kids of her age, doing fun stuff and having an enjoyable childhood. With the support of an estranged grandmother the courts are unfortunately drawn in and the uncle has to cut a deal with the prosecution. The options were to send her niece to a school for gifted kids full-time or put her in foster care as well attending the school. The uncle felt the pressure of the courts and the eventually decided that the foster-care option was best for his niece. A fortuitous set of events leads the uncle to discover that the foster parents have made plans with the niece’s grandmother to continue to her education with private tutors without his knowledge. I won’t ruin the ending but I was taken by how complex parenting can be, perhaps even even more so with a gifted child.

Most parents would agree that raising a child can cause a plethora of feelings from: joy, disappointment, inspiration, frustration and pride. We also know that there is no rule-book on how to be a good parent. Parents do the best they can, with the knowledge that they have and impart these to their children through their actions, their words and allowing their children to make their own mistakes and through reflection be able to change one’s behaviour.

This week’s Gospel looks at knowing who God is, learning from him and living this out in our lives. Just as God loves us, we must show to our children what tough love is. Sometimes going without and having less ends up being the “more” in our lives. Another key message from the readings today is that God demands we build our house on a solid foundation. It has to be robust in order to weather the great storms that our lives will inevitably endure. Are we raising children and young people to deal with adversity? Are we teaching them to celebrate their failures as equally as they experiences great wins? We must also remember to pray to God to discern all our actions and remain unshakeable in our faith.

Blessings Fr Nev

By Dr. Peter VardyTHE REFORMATION TODAY: AN ECUMENICAL PERSPECTIVE 

2017 marks the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Many historians consider the Reformation one of those epoch changing events in the history of the Western world. But what does it mean for people in Australia 500 years later? Was the Reformation just a series of pointless disputes which have little relevance to the church today? Or is the church today the living legacy of the Reformation, and if so, what does this mean for us? Join us as we ask these questions together.
