We the people of St. Patrick's Beenleigh, are a welcoming Eucharistic spirit-filled community, who are on the journey searching to be church in the world. We are committed to each other and to creating a parish that is both life-giving and challenging, respecting and reflecting our multi-cultural nature. Through our baptism we respond to the call to take the message of Jesus to all people.

Saint of the Week: 15th November St Albert the Great (1206 – 1280)

He was born at Lauingen on the Danube, in Germany, and studied at Padua and Paris before entering the Dominican Order. He taught in a number of places including the University of Paris, where St Thomas Aquinas studied under him.

He was one of the greatest philosophers of the Middle Ages, coming at the beginning of the great flowering that came with the rediscovery of the works of Aristotle. He had a great interest in science and astronomy and his learning gave him the title, as a Doctor of the Church, of Doctor Universalis, the “Universal Doctor.”

In 1260 the Pope made him Bishop of Regensburg, a post that he held for three years before resigning it. He made great efforts to secure peace between people and between cities. He died at Cologne in 1280.

Your prayers are asked for all of the following:

Weekly Reflection

It’s the 33rd Sunday in Ordinary Time, and so the Church is coming to the end of our liturgical year as well. Next weekend is the Solemnity of Christ the King, which finishes off the Sundays in the season of Ordinary Time, and then it’s on to the new liturgical year with Advent. And so the next two weeks, the Church is using this end of the year theme to mirror a greater mystery – the end of history. Today, Jesus gives us a few signs, saying that there will be wars and famine. The Book of Revelation says there will be an Anti-Christ. The Book of Malachi that we had for our first reading says that it will be a day blazing like an oven. All of these are signs of the end times. But here’s the thing: we have already had wars and famines for the past 2000 years. There always seem to be people in every generation who blatantly stand out as “anti-Christ”. What I would suggest is that we’re missing the point if we are seeking a sign or a date for the end times. The second coming of Jesus, the end of the world, transcends the logic of human history. We don’t know when, how, or why Jesus will come. We can’t figure out a date, nor should we. The point is that it will come, and is coming, and we are called to prepare. We don’t prepare by building bomb shelters or stocking up on bread and milk, but in hopeful anticipation. Sometimes in theological terms, we use the Greek word Parousia to describe the end times. But this word more literally means the welcoming or grand arrival of an important guest. That’s how we are called to approach the end – with hope and welcoming of the coming of Christ. Today’s reading gives a clear message not to be caught short on the day of judgement.

Children’s Liturgy

Children’s Liturgy As a group we gather in the MacKillop Room, listen to the gospel, sing the Alleluia and discuss what it all means for us as followers of Jesus in 2015. We usually respond to the word in a number of ways- using drama, mediation, song, drawing and creating in a meaningful way. We conclude with Prayers of the Faithful, often sharing our own prayers from the heart with each other. We often receive more spiritual wisdom from the children than that from a lot of adults!!
