Easter 2017 

          ( No Mass on Easter Sunday Evening) 


From Father Nev

18-3-18 – A United Kingdom

This week I’ll be attending the Clergy Convocation. I’m speculating this year that after the heaviness of the Royal Commission we’ll be looking at ways we can avoid a similar situation through better accountability practices. Other conversations will probably include Proclaim 2018 here in Brisbane and also the latest updates around the Plenary Council in 2020.
This week I was watching a movie called A United Kingdom. The story centres around the incredible love between a white English woman Ruth and a black Botswanan man (Seretse Khama) studying in London. Seretse just happens to be the king incumbent to Bechuanaland. It’s a powerful story of their love to fight against the geo-politics in Africa and England in the mid-20th century. Ruth struggles with the cultural shock of becoming a white Queen to an African tribe. She must fight against the prejudice of the being white and being judged as a colonialist. There is also the poison of apartheid emerging in South Africa sweeping across neighbouring countries. Seretse becomes physically separated from his wife and must trust others in order to protect his wife and the future of his country. He must be clever in dealing with the British government’s unjust agenda. He is also faced with confronting his uncle to find a peaceful solution to be endorsed as the rightful heir to lead their nation. I found this story equally confronting and inspiring. I was challenged by the complex situations they were part of but lifted up by their powerful resolve to persevere and act with conviction rather than shrink in fear. Ruth is eventually accepted by the Botswanan people and she learns how to fight for her husband. Seretse learns to lead and serve his people from abroad in a position of humility. Eventually their love brings them back together, ushering in a new and radical direction for Botswana.
This film makes me think about the covenantal love between God and Israel referred to in Jeremiah. It demonstrates that whether we’re married, single, a priest or a religious, when we follow God we become a team that is unstoppable. Deep within Ruth and Seretse, Go d had written on their hearts what they would show the world. I was speaking to a lovely couple and I reminded them that they minister the sacrament of love to each other each day and maybe just as importantly they show everyone the stability and dynamism of marriage. As Christ learnt to obey his Father so too may we develop the grace to surrender more and more to his sovereign rule. Help us Lord to die to our past, our weakness and our self and rise to live for you.
Blessings Fr Nev

Brisbane Archdiocese Video Series – The Mass



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.
