A 4 minute plus video of the procession during the 

recent "Walk With Mary"

that took place on 7th April.

The "walk" had been preceded by Holy Mass at St Patrick's Cathedral with Archbishop Peter A. Comensoli and was and was followed by Evensong at St Paul's Cathedral with Bishop Lindsay Urwin.

A Plan of Action

Our late Holy Father, Saint John Paul II  said in his    visit to Fatima in 1991, “The new condition of the people and of the Church is still dangerous and unstable. Therefore, Mother, we need you and ask that you reveal your love to each one of your children and to the nations” (cf. May 13)Our Lady of Fatima is  associated with some of the most significant historical and spiritual events of the last century. The truth of the apparitions was demonstrated through the amazing  miracle of the sun in which on October 13th, 1917 everyone in a crowd of approximately 100,000 witnessed an incredible solar phenomenon.

This phenomenon was witnessed by both believers and atheists alike and was so dramatic that most of those present  thought it was going to be the end of the world.  The effect on those who witnessed this miracle was profound.  People converted.   Our Lady of Fatima predicted the end of the First World War and the beginning of the Second World War. Our Lady  predicted the spreading of the errors of atheistic  Communism throughout the world.  Our Lady predicted the assassination attempt on St John Paul II.  This took place on the Feast of Our Lady of Fatima, 1981.  Subsequently Pope John Paul II consecrated the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  The then surviving visionary the Servant of God, Sister  Lucia Santos explained that this act prevented a nuclear war that would have otherwise have occurred in 1985, and that this consecration also led to the fall of communism in the former Soviet Union.  

God wants to give all of us an important and personal message through Our Lady  and remind us of  timeless and unchanging divine realities.  

Firstly God indicated that His victory would come through Our Lady.  It is as if God has entrusted these times to Her and is pleased to be victorious through Her.

She told us that in the end Her Immaculate Heart would triumph. 

Secondly and most importantly Fatima comes to us with a warning, a loving warning, but nevertheless a warning.  In one of the visions Our Lady opened her hands and in doing so the three visionaries saw the fires of hell and many, many souls going there because no one is praying for them.  It was revealed that most of the souls going there are doing so because of sins of impurity.

In our evil age in which sexual promiscuity is promoted as well as all forms of deviant sexual behaviour, it is good for us to remember that this is all part of the final battle between God and the enemy.  Let us stand on the right side of history and be part of His victory by remaining pure, humble and with His grace let us dare to say holy, as we await the promised triumph of the Immaculate Heart.  

What else can we do?  We can pray, make sacrifices for poor sinners, we can wear the scapular and pray faithfully the powerful rosary daily.  Also please do join us on the 14th to make a beautiful and pleasing tribute that will bring great blessings upon us.  Weather permitting a procession will also take place.  Please do join us.

A Beautiful Afternoon
for Christ Our King 

To prepare us and to help us in this time of need he gave the world 5 wonderful gifts which include Divine Mercy Sunday, The Divine Mercy Image, The Chaplet of Mercy, and “The Hour of Mercy”, and the special graces for those who spread His unfathomable Mercy.  


The Novena and Feast has always been an extraordinary source of grace for all who attend.  This year promises to be a most memorable and blessed one with a very special Polish Priest coming out to Australia for the very first time:  Fr Kasper Gorski.  

It commences in the evening of Good Friday.  Please see the back page, coming events for information regarding the time and venue etc. 

Jesus told St Faustina that on that day, (that is the Feast of Mercy), “the floodgates of my mercy are opened, and I pour out a whole ocean of graces upon those souls who approach the font of My mercy.”

In preparation for the Feast of Mercy Jesus gave Saint Faustina an extraordinary Novena commencing on Good Friday running for nine consecutive days. He gave her specific instructions on how to conduct the novena and even the intentions for those nine days. It is a very powerful Novena. Jesus declared “by this novena I will grant every possible grace to souls”. (Diary 796) Saint Faustina writes, “Jesus is commanding me to make a novena before the Feast of Mercy, and today I am to begin it for the conversion of the whole world and for the recognition of The Divine Mercy” (Diary 1059)

Jesus, regarding the Novena explained:

On each day you will bring to My Heart a different group of souls, and you will immerse them in this ocean of My mercy, and I will bring all these souls into the house of My Father.”  (Diary 1209) 

Jesus loves us so much and this Novena is so important to Him.  He has made fantastic promises to all who do the Novena.  But as with all prayers it isn’t simply a matter of doing,  the power of the novena is determined by the amount of love and confidence we have in Jesus when we do it.  That is why it is so important to come and share in the grace of the Novena organised by the Combined Societies of Mary.  You will be in a prayerful and faithful environment and your efforts will be multiplied by those around you.  


Our preparation and our ability to receive all the graces God wants to give us will no doubt be greatly assisted through the presence of a highly recommended, International Divine Mercy Priest, Fr Kasper Gorski from the Archdiocese of Warsaw. 


Please spread this good news far and wide and be a blessed apostle of Divine Mercy.
