Here is this Sunday’s Parish Bulletin with the Readings for Mass.Christ the Sower

Word Format:  Year A 15th Sunday

Pdf Format: Year A 15th Sunday.

Unfortunately, space limitations prevented my adding reflections on today’s readings.  I recommend you go here for some excellent scriptural exegesis: http://www.thesacredpage.com/2014/07/the-seed-good-soil-and-understanding.html by Dr Michael Barber.

I have, however, drawn attention in the newsletter to Liberal Democrats Senator David Leyonhjelm’s intention to introduce a private member’s bill on Tuesday to ‘deregulate marriage’ so that marriages between same-sex attracted persons might become legal in Australia.  I would urge all parishioners (or anyone who reads this blog) to familiarise themselves with the Catholic position on homosexuality.  Deacon Harold Burke-Sivers gives a great summary here: http://deaconharold.wordpress.com/2013/02/04/the-truth-in-love/.  If you want to do something else practical in the meantime, sign this petition here: http://preservingmarriage.acl.org.au/.  This petition is on a Greens’ Bill currently under consideration that would recognise foreign so-called ‘same-sex marriages’ in Autralia.
