TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: Lest We Forget
I can think of no better words to begin this week’s message than: Lest we forget
TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: Connecting from afar
I am hoping that some of you, who were at home during the week because of the coronavirus, took time to read the daily readings in this Easter week.
TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: An Easter like no other
For me it lacked the liturgical busyness of previous Easters, with choir preparations, turning up early to practice with the choir before each of the ceremonies, the foot washing, the solemnity of the end of Holy Thursday as we place Jesus in the garden of repose, then moving into Good Friday, the adoration of the Cross, the preparation of the Cathedral space for each of the ceremonies, particularly on Holy Saturday and then the joy of the Easter Vigil, gathering outside in the dark by the fire, processing into the darkened space and welcoming in the ‘light of Christ’, before proclaiming Alleluia, Jesus is risen.
TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: Prayerful Holy Week
Here I begin Holy Week, like one we have never experienced before.
TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: A Sabbath time
This is the second weekend of not gathering as a community, with some of us going on line for the live-streaming of Mass at the Sacred Heart Cathedral with Bishop Bill.
TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: Love alone overcomes fear
The first part of this week’s message has been written by John Hayes who has a very strong interest in Social Justice and The Environment
TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: A generation of change
This message is being written from the Gold Coast, as we spent the weekend visiting our children and grandchildren, where the key topic of conversation was around COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and the impact that it is having on our global and local settings and what might eventuate over the coming weeks and possibly months.
TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: Each for equal
I am conscious of writing this message on Sunday 8 March, which is International Women’s Day (IWD) – a day where we recall and celebrate the many women in our lives, both past and present.
