Church and State

Today I arranged for the Australian government to pay me for going to church. I'll be on annual leave for the entirety of Holy Week. They can hardly argue with my supporting documentation! It's a great blessing, and I am very thankful.

Please remember Dom Christopher Andrews OSB, and his brother monks of Clear Creek in your prayers. I think Father would only approve of photos of himself online if they served as a lasting reminder to pray for him. He sang Mass beautifully on Sunday - and his Latin was quite French. Please pray for him.

Our next visitor will be the Very Rev John Berg, FSSP Superior General of the Priestly Fraternity of St Peter. Father will be in Melbourne from the 16th-22nd of February (Chair of St Peter). He will preach at Burke Hall and St Aloysius' on Quinquagesima Sunday, 18th February, celebrating the Solemn Mass that morning at 11am at St Aloysius'. There will be a pre-Lenten picnic following, with Solemn Vespers and Benediction at 4pm. Deo gratias.

What a clever idea! I think I'll book my Annual Leave around important feasts. :)
