Liturgy February 28, 2021

By Terry Fitzpatrick

At the centre of Jesus' teachings is the message to love our neighbour as ourselves, to see them as equal to ourselves. Our liturgy today invites us to see that despite viewing ourselves as a Christian country, we ignored Jesus' teaching and treated the First Peoples of Australia as unequal and inferior to ourselves. Therefore we were able to exploit them and steal their land. Homily by Terry Fitzpatrick
