Spend Holy Week With Jesus: Downloadable Daily Reflection
Last edited 31st March 2015

At the heart of our faith is the Paschal mystery: the Passion, death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus Christ. All of salvation history leads up to and goes forth from these saving events. We call this “Holy Week” because Jesus’ public ministry culminates with His suffering, death, and resurrection.

Who Am I? A Reflection for the Beginning of Holy Week
Last edited 29th March 2015

On Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week, we remember how much the Son of God loves us. He loved us to Death, and to His Resurrection which gives us hope. Pope Francis challenges us to ask ourselves "Who am I?" this week. Who am I before Jesus... am I like Judas? or like the Disciples who slept while Jesus was suffering? Am I like Pilot, washing my hands from those in need? Am I like Simon of Cyrene, a comfort of Christ? Watch this video reflection as we begin the holiest week of the year... Holy Week.

What's your WYD story?
Last edited 23rd March 2015

How does an event like World Youth Day impact on a young person’s life? Every pilgrim has a different story….. Fr Paul Kim, St Mary of the Cross MacKillop Parish Warnervale, was a young seminarian in South Korea back in 2008 when he won a writing competition that earned him a ticket to World Youth Day celebrations in Sydney, Australia. After graduating high school in 2001, Fr Paul entered the seminary at 19 years of age. Whilst searching for God in his vocation and practising his faith, he still felt he was struggling because of his young age and was looking for a ‘turning point’ in his journey.
