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.

Weekly Reflection

One afternoon summer, a car bomb exploded in a commercial district of Baghdad. Ten people were killed and many more were injured. Unfortunately such destruction is not unusual in the Iraqi capital. But there was something unusual that happened that afternoon. As the police and medical personnel were cordoning off the area, a man appeared in a black suit, his long hair combed back. He unfolded a small chair and sat down. Then, in the midst of the smoke and the rubble, he began to play his cello. The man was Karim Wasfi. He was the conductor of the Iraqi National Symphony Orchestra. As Mr. Wasfi played his cello, people stopped and began to listen. Many cried, and some prayed. This image of beautiful music being performed in a scene of destruction captures at least in part the ministry of Jesus.

During his life Jesus walked the cities of Galilee looking for those who were suffering and in need. In today’s gospel he opens the ears of a man who is deaf. Jesus’ mission was to bring the presence of God’s love into the lives of people that were wounded by disease and hopelessness. Now unlike Jesus, you and I cannot open the ears of the deaf or make the blind to see. But, like Mr. Wasfi, we can choose to bring goodness and beauty into situations that are marked by loss and despair.

We are not always able to protect our children from the influence of peer pressure. We cannot assure that they will avoid being bullied in their relationships. But we can make sure that they know that they are people of great value and have a dignity that no one can take away. We cannot eradicate poverty or unemployment in our society. But we can choose to place ourselves in settings where we meet the poor and the unemployed, listen to their stories, and share stories of our own. We cannot protect the people we love from the pain of sickness or the fear of dying. But we can sit at their bedside, remembering the good times, and showing them our love.

Like a musician playing the cello in a scene of devastation, we can choose to bring beauty and goodness to situations of suffering and to people without hope. And every time we take a stand for dignity and love, we not only help others. We also take up Jesus’ mission to manifest God’s love to the world.

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!!
