Oceania - Pope's Evangelisation Intention for August 2014
Last edited 30th July 2014

In addition to asking us to pray for refugees this August, Pope Francis has also asked us to pray: "That Christians in Oceania may joyfully announce the faith to all the people of that region." So if you live in Australia, New Zealand or one of the Pacific Islands, Catholics around the world will be praying for you this month! Fr. Kubicki reflects on Pope Francis' evangelisation intention for August 2014 in this video.


Feast Day of St. Martha - 29 July
Last edited 29th July 2014

Today is the feast day of one of Jesus' closest friends, Saint Martha. Martha often gets a bad rap because when Jesus visited her house, she complained that she was doing all the work while her sister Mary sat at his feet. A lot of us can identify with Martha, and the lesson that Jesus taught us through her is so important. We should take all our worries and put them into the hands of Jesus. Watch this video for more!

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is about an encounter with God's mercy and forgiveness. It's not something to be scared of... no matter how long it's been or how big your sins.

Feast Day of Mary Magdalene, Saint of Forgiveness and Conversion
Last edited 22nd July 2014

St. Mary Magdalene was the first witness to the resurrection of Jesus. She had stood with Mary, Mother of God, at the foot of the Cross on that brutal Good Friday afternoon and had been by the side of Mary during these difficult hours. On Easter morning, she went with the other women to the tomb and it was there, in the garden near the tomb, that Jesus appeared to her. It was she who brought the news of the Resurrection to the Apostles, and Peter and John raced to the tomb to see what had happened.

Why Does God Let Us Suffer?
Last edited 18th July 2014

Pain and suffering are often peoples' biggest obstacle to faith. "If there is a God, why does he let us suffer?" They conclude there is no God, or that he doesn't care about us. Chris Stefanick points us to the truth revealed on the cross, that God is love, and suffers for us, and with us.


Can the Vatican go Viral? George Pell’s Communication Challenge
Last edited 17th July 2014

Imagine you were playing with your phone while you waited for the World Cup final to get underway and you suddenly saw a photo of the Pope Emeritus eating popcorn with the current Pontiff on your timeline. Below the photo is a tagline wishing both countries well and a quote from St John Paul II: In the very near future we may see such a radical reshaping of how we view the Vatican and it will come via the most unlikely of social media champions, Cardinal George Pell, current Prefect of the Secretariat for the Economy in the Holy See.
