The love Jesus encourages us to have in today’s Gospel is a very particular love, He tells us not just to love one another, but “to love as I have loved you”, this is sacrificial love, where he laid down his life that we might live. This love is shown in deeds and not words.

Sacrificial love is not a warm and fuzzy feeling, it is a practical way where our love is judged by our gentleness, kindness and patience with each other.

May the ANZACS help us to embrace sacrifice in a way that leads to life.

A Prayer from Father Pedro Arrupe SJ (1907-1991)

Nothing is more practical than finding God, that is, than falling in love in a quite absolute, final way. What you are in love with, what seizes your imagination, will affect everything.

It will decide what will get you out of bed in the morning, what you will do with your evenings, how you will spend your weekends, what you read, who you know, what breaks your heart, and what amazes you with joy and gratitude.

Fall in love, stay in love and it will decide everything.


Farewell to our Parish Secretary, Ashleigh

After a happy year here at the Richmond Catholic Parish, Ashleigh, our parish secretary, has decided to accept an offer of employment from the Catholic Archdiocese of Melbourne. She says “I’ve obtained great satisfaction from my time here and will miss everyone as it was a pleasure working with the whole parish team.” The people she has served joyfully, especially the parish team, express their gratitude to you. “We wish you Ashleigh, future joy and happiness in your new role in the city. Come back and see us soon!” – Father Gaetan
