Homilies: Solemnity of St Mary of the Cross (Mary Mackillop)

My homily for the Solemnity of St Mary of the Cross (Mary Mackillop) as preached during the live-streamed 9.30am Mass from Sacred Heart Cathedral, Hamilton.

The readings proclaimed were 1 Kings 17:8-16; Colossians 3:12-17; Matthew 6:25-34.

“Rely on the providence of God in all things, putting God’s kingdom – God’s agenda – before anything that might distract from working for God’s kingdom and God’s justice. As St Mary did, so we are called to do.
