Prayers please

The smell of smoke and an eery red hue have lingered since lunch time. Reports from the CFA aren’t great. The nearby fires in the Grampians doubled in size overnight, and it seems only rain can bring them under control now.

But it won’t rain before Monday, and in the meantime, a change from the north will raise temperatures and redirect the fires toward population centres. It’s going to be a long weekend, in the worst possible sense.

Many parishioners are already adversely impacted, and many more have dropped everything and joined in the effort to fight the fires, and care for the fire fighters. Keep them in your prayers!

Sent by one of our parishioners. His family evacuated on Sunday. He was hit by a falling tree yesterday so is now out of action due to concussion — much to his children's relief.

    My Prayer :

    Heavenly Father, we on bended knees implore you to have mercy on your people in the Grampians. Lord, help the fire
    fighters and the people as they fight to put out the fire. My
    Lord and My God, may it rain in the Grampians and protect
    your people, their homes, their property, their animals and
    pets. Thank you Lord, we believe that you have answered our
    prayer.

    Hope all the fires can burn out quickly and we hopefully we can get some rain soon!
    Now I think February should be called the Pope Month and should remember all the popes
    The day of Pope Bendict resign it was on St. Benedict of Aniane and the next was the feast day of St. Benedict Revelli and couple of days ago it was the Chair of St. Peter Apostle! So I think we should have month to remember all the popes who have done great things for church. I also believe we should have a month remember priest and bishops!
    St. Suitbert of Kaiserwerdt Feast day is March the 1ST the patron saint of Germany and on March 22nd is Feast of St. Darerca of Ireland! So there feast days coming too but I just want to mention some of them
    I will remember Pope Bendict not just making Mary Mackillop a saint but making John Herny Newman a saint and going to England.
    Now Bless Me Father is back on air on 7two on Sundays at 8am. Write a note and tape it!
    Finally St. Brigid of Ireland parents were bapised by St. Patrick. Her feast was on the First of Feburary. There is always something to pray for and to celebrate in our church. Maybe we should spend some time in Lent to study some some saints and some new ones!

    The jumps season starts on Tuesday week at Warrnamabool because Easter is early. Oakbank a town in South Australia have two Easter Carnival it could be there last one with the South Australia government might ban jumps races soon.
    Finally I reckon that the the next pope might come from America but I would love Fr.Richard Leonard to be pope one day he is jesuit priest at the moment!
