Listen to What the Spirit is Saying
In October 2021, the Catholic Church in Australia will gather for the first Plenary Council to be held since the second Vatican Council.

Entrusting Australia to Mary Help of Christians
O Immaculate Mary, Help of Christians, Queen of heaven and earth, and tender Mother of humanity, at this time when a pandemic threatens all your children, we entrust to you our nation, Australia, and all who live in this country.
We commit to your intercession all the members of our community, beginning with the weakest ones, from the unborn to the sick, the disabled and the elderly.
We commit to you our families, our young and old, and all who are vulnerable, those who are quarantined or anxious.
We entrust to your Immaculate Heart those who have lost their livelihood or employment, our pastors and other essential service workers, and our leaders at this time.
We implore your intercession especially for the protection of doctors and nurses and those who minister to the contagious sick in this crisis.
Reign over us, Mother of God, and teach us how to make the Heart of Jesus reign and triumph in us and around us, as it has reigned and triumphed in you!
