The following is an edited excerpt from the Pastoral Letter from the Australian Catholic Bishops for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Sunday 2017:
Just a few months ago an Aboriginal Elder in the Kimberley, well advanced in years and at that time in poor health, wrote a letter a few weeks before his death. It was written in copperplate style, in blue ink on thin note paper and was several pages long. His instructions were that the priest at his funeral might share the letter with the mourners in attendance at the church.

We’ve just passed the shortest day of the year, the winter solstice and the end of exams. Teachers had one week to frantically mark all the papers and complete the lengthy process of report writing. As we all become a little run down, we will also inevitably see an increase in illness across the College as the winter cold and flu season begins. Just in time for the holidays!

I once heard a psychiatrist say that people who believe in God have a delusion. I felt sorry for him that he does not have faith in God.

The world is full of bad news. Trump’s policies of hate; Brexit’s divisiveness in the UK, the reduction of the rights of vulnerable women in Russia; the continuing devastation in Syria; Australia’s current refugee policy and even the unwelcoming nature of some of our parishes, have made me shocked, angry and sad.

Whenever I hear the fireworks, I don’t think of celebration, for it sounds like someone’s bombing the hell out of us, and I think of all those in war torn countries. On New Year’s Eve it doesn’t sound like the end of the year, it sounds like World War 3.

Lent is a time of preparation. It should not be all gloomy but rather a time to reach out for God in new ways. In some ways it is a type of pilgrimage.

The International Day of Happiness is a quirky celebration. Most international days celebrate groups of people – women, children, journalists, refugees etc. Or they point to quite specific qualities that we need in order to flourish: mental and physical health, peace, asylum etc. They encourage us to be attentive to particular groups of people who are impeded from flourishing as human beings, and to act to ensure that society provides for their needs.

One of my heroes is at the heart of the Church; Mary Magdalene, recently justly reinstated as 'Apostle to the apostles'. On International Women's Day, we connect with her courageous witness and declaration ‘I have seen the Lord’.
