Good News: We’re still in the middle of the story

By Father Cathie Caimano | May 23, 2022

We’re reading from the Book of Revelation in the Easter season. It makes me wonder how much we think about the first and the last words of the Bible. The first ones are very well known: ‘In the beginning…’, Genesis 1:1. But I’m not sure we know the end as well: ‘the grace of the…

Good News: God calls us beyond what divides us

By Father Cathie Caimano | May 16, 2022

In the Acts of the Apostles we read a story of Peter having a vision and when she sees all sorts of food and hears God’s voice saying, ‘Get up Peter kill and eat.’ As someone has been a vegetarian for about 40 years this is not seem like good news to me at first…

Good News: We Can Witness to God’s Miracles

By Father Cathie Caimano | May 9, 2022

Miracles are definitely Good News! In the Acts of the Apostles, Tabitha (also known as Dorcas) has died an her friends are mourning. Peter goes up to where she has been laid, he prays, and she rises from the dead! It’s a very early church miracle. And it’s easy to believe that these things only…

Good News: Conversion is for us all

By Father Cathie Caimano | May 2, 2022

Good News: Resurrection is the light by which we see everything

By Father Cathie Caimano | April 18, 2022

I believe it was CS Lewis who said, ‘I believe in Christianity as I believe in the sunrise. Not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.’ During the Easter season (the next 50 days!) we remember that is the Resurrection of Jesus Christ that provides that light – which…

Good News: We can be extravagant in our worship

By Father Cathie Caimano | April 4, 2022

In this week’s Gospel, Jesus says, ‘the poor will always be with you.’ This doesn’t sound like good news! But I think what he’s really saying – he’s speaking to his disciples about a woman using costly perfume to anoint him – is that it’s ok to be extravagant in our worship. Because it’s Jesus…
