From Father Nev

10-12-17 – In searching for the more we enter the fuzzy zone.

This second week of Advent we continue to receive the more who is Jesus Christ. How do we allow Jesus to grow in us? We have to first be open to the Holy Spirit. Without the Spirit, we are just acting out of our own will. The Spirit can do so much more, if we simply surrender to the power. As we well know Mary chose to succumb to the Spirit and to the angel Gabriel’s command. She never resisted the Spirit but faithfully and humbly worked with God’s presence.

Your encounter with the Spirit may be like a tiny shoot starting to bud. Don’t be afraid because God wants so much for you to be filled continually with his power. He certainly does not want us to be empty, disconnected and sad. Secondly we must respond to the Spirit. If you start to feel a warmth or a voice speaking within your depths don’t push it away, thank God that you can feel his presence. A lot of the time when we try to communicate with God it sometimes feels like our prayers are falling on deaf ears. That may seem so, but we must learn to trust that he is indeed watching over us with unwavering love.

Just as when a ship leaves port, there is great comfort knowing that land is still in sight. There is hope that adventure is out there beyond the horizon. Equally there is the potential for danger and peril. Once we lose sight of land and all we can see is the endless horizon, we can no longer be confident of what the future holds. We are now entering the fuzzy zone of Advent. This is where we have nothing to hang onto except our faith in God. This zone is where most Catholics turn back. They are not prepared to allow God to take the reins and fill our sails with his Spirit. We tend to go back to our life of mediocrity rather than launch ourselves into the unknown.

Using the pregnancy analogy, there is not a lot of choices when a woman is pregnant. Although during the whole process there is no guarantee that a healthy baby will be born. As most parents know, so many checks are done on how the baby is going over the 9 months. We too must be mindful and reflective on how Jesus is developing in us. Even the delivery itself can be fraught with complications. Even though we celebrate Christmas soon, it may not mean that the Jesus in you will be born! It may happen in a month, six months or later. Just know and trust that God is here with us always, Emmanuel.

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.
