For a more in depth treatment, Scott Hahn has a beautiful and biblical explanation of the Papacy here.

Also, the movie, God’s not Dead is still showing at Innaloo and Morley. God's not Dead Session times for Innaloo for tomorrow are 11:00, 4:30, 6:15.  If anyone wants to join us for the 6:15 session, please let me know!  Movie review here.

We also need to join Bishop Anthony Fisher of Parramatta’s prayer crusade for Christians being martyred for their faith in Iraq and Syria.  Fast, pray, go to Adoration and read the article in The Australian here.  And translate your prayers into action here with a donation!
