An Anzac Day Reflection

An Anzac Day Reflection

On 25 April, the people of Australia and New Zealand stop to remember all those who have died in battle, defending our nations. Known as 'ANZAC' day, we honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War I.

Visit this article from the Archdiocese of Melbourne website, for a reflection on why Catholic's should commemorate ANZAC day, written by Fr Peter Steele: "Anzac Day need not remind us only of healthy young men dying, quite close to the site of ancient Troy, most of a hundred years ago. Anzac Day can, and should, remind us of the battle between love and death which is everybody’s scenario, however placid their circumstances, and however benign their temperaments."
