Healing Country – July 18 Liturgy
In our liturgy we will be listening to the homily that Fr Frank Brennan SJ gave at the start of NAIDOC week. Reflecting on the focus for the week of ‘Heal Country’ he states that “There’ll be no healing of the country, there’ll be no constitutional recognition, and there’ll be no truth telling unless more of us hear the same call that Jesus heard and that is, “The spirit came into me and made me stand up.”
World Environment Day 2021
