May – the month of MARY

Mother Mary – The Little One Who Understands

“Every day Mary is in constant contact with the ineffable mystery of God made man, a mystery that surpasses everything revealed in the Old Covenant. From the moment of the Annunciation, the mind of the Virgin-Mother has been initiated into the radical “newness” of God’s self-revelation and has been made aware of the mystery. She is the first of those “little ones” of whom Jesus will say one day: “Father, … you have hidden these things from the wise and understanding and revealed them to babes.” (Mt. 11:25).”

The Petrine Office

Barque of Peter

The World is a flood of confusion.  Only one Boat that can sail safely through. The sail is Jesus. It’s pilot is Peter.  It’s rudder, the Word of God. It is the Catholic Church.  I am the Way, the Truth and the Life  (John 14:6)

Follow the Lord and you will be led out of darkness, for He is the light.  For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light. (Psalm 36:9)  But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a consecrated nation, a people set apart to sing the praises of God who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. (1 Peter 2:9)

“ … the barque of the Church is not mine but [Christ’s], nor does the Lord let it sink; it is he who guides it, surely also through those whom he has chosen, because he so wished.  This has been, and is, a certainty which nothing can shake. ”

Pope Benedict XVI, last General Audience, February 27th, 2013; Vatican.va


Fratelli Tutti (The third encyclical of Pope Francis) As the Parish of Saint Peter, Surry Hills supports the person and teachings of his successors who, as Bishops of Rome, hold the Petrine office.

Partaking in the Eucharist commits us to others, especially the poor, teaching us to pass from the flesh of Christ to the flesh of our brothers and sisters, in whom he waits to be recognised, served honoured and loved by us.
