We are such a broad church with people whose approach to belonging to the Catholic Church varies. I have no doubt that we are continually in need of the presence and guidance of the Holy Spirit, so that the diversity of views and ways of being Catholic do not divide us.
Our weekend readings for the feast of The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi), served to remind me that we need to be nourished by receiving Holy Communion so we can be sent out to nourish our world.
We have just returned home from spending a few days on the Gold Coast, visiting some of our children and grandchildren. The new M1 is a wonderful road, especially after travelling north for so many years during its construction. We are very blest, in Australia, to be able to travel such distances in relative safety.
