Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Victoria, Australia as they live through this difficult time. Bishop Hart of Melbourne is offering a special mass on Feb 12th. The land “down under” is an amazing place, but the good people of Australia are challenged by some pretty extreme weather. Right now it’s the floods in the North and the Bushfire and drought in the South. Special greetings to the Marist Brothers of Melbourne and Sydney with whom I visited a couple of years ago and all the young adults involved in the National Justice Festival. I pray and hope your families and friends are safe.
