Father Philip Alesin

I’m Father Philip Alesin, a Priest of the Catholic Diocese of Ekiti, Nigeria. Born on 9 January 1977, my journey to the priesthood started at St John of the Cross Spiritual Year Seminary in Nigeria in January 1997. In continuation of my formation, I proceeded to the Seminary of Saints Peter and Paul, Ibadan, Nigeria (an affiliate of the University of Ibadan, Nigeria and Pontifical Urban University, Italy) in October, where I completed bachelor’s degrees in Philosophy and Sacred Theology in 2001 and 2005 respectively. I was raised to the Order of Deacons in December 2004 and ordained a Priest on 13 August 2005. After working in my diocese for nine years, I was offered a place of study at the University of Glasgow, Scotland to do an MSc in Global Security on a Commonwealth Shared Scholarship jointly sponsored by the University and the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID) from September 2014 to September 2015. Upon completing my program, I went back home to continue my priestly ministry until last April, when I began my PhD studies at The University of Queensland’s School of Political Science and International Studies, thanks to a generous UQ international scholarship. I am grateful to Archbishop Mark Coleridge and the Vicar General, Monsignor Peter Meneely, for giving me the opportunity to stay at Holy Family Catholic Parish, Indooroopilly, as Priest in Residence, so that I may continue serving God’s people as a priest of the Catholic Church during my doctoral studies at UQ. I’m equally appreciative of the warm welcome I’ve received from the Parish Priest, Father Neville Yun. May God reward your labour of love. Amen. Father Philip Alesin

22-9-19 – 7 Tips for a Happy Marriage (Part II)

Hi everyone, Continuing last week’s talk on marriage tips from Pope Francis. 5. Ask Jesus to multiply your love: “Give us this day our daily Love”. You can’t forget to pray. The Pope gave the couples the following advice based on the ‘Our Father’ prayer. “The Lord can multiply your love!! He has an infinite reserve! He gives you the love that stands as a foundation of your union and each day he renews and strengthens it. And he makes it even greater when the family grows with children … Ask Jesus to multiply your love. When we pray the ‘Our Father we normally say “Give us this day our daily bread”. When it comes to marriage, we can say: Give us this day, our daily love. This is the prayer for married couples and spouses. Teach us to love one another, to will the good of the other! The more you trust in him, the more your love will be”forever”, able to be renewed and it will conquer any difficulty.” 6. Three important phrases that should be often repeated by married couples and in the family: MAY I? THANK YOU. I’M SORRY… Living together is an art, a patient, beautiful, fascinating journey. It does not end once you have won each other’s love… Rather, it is precisely there where it begins! The journey of every day has a few rules that can be summed up in three phrases … MAY I? THANK YOU. I’M SORRY… MAY I? This a polite request to enter the life of another with respect and care. One should learn how to ask: may I do this? Would you like for us to do this? In short, to ask permission means to know how to enter with courtesy into the lives of others. How do I enter with courtesy into the lives of others? THANK YOU. In your relationship, keep alive the awareness that the other person is a gift from God – and for the gifts of God, we say thank You. Likewise we should say thanks for everything regarding our beloved spouse. Do we know how to say thank you? I’M SORRY. Let us learn to acknowledge our mistakes and to ask for forgiveness. “Forgive me if today I have raised my voice”; “I’m sorry if I passed without greeting you”; “Excuse me if I was late”; “If I spoke too much without listening”; “excuse me if I forgot”; “I’m sorry I was angry and I took it on you”. Apply this phrases with your children and watch your family grow. 7. Forgiveness is the key to happiness. Learn to love your spouse with their defects with the idea to help them grow. The pope gives this warning. Nobody is perfect. So the key to happiness he said is forgiveness. We all know that the perfect family does not exist, nor a perfect husband, wife or mother-in-law. It’s us who do exist, sinners. Jesus knows us well and shares with us this secret: Never let the day end, without apologising. 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.
