You have learned how to survive, whether on your own lands, or scattered among the towns and cities. Though your difficulties are not yet over, you must learn to draw on the endurance which your ancient ceremonies have taught you. Endurance brings with it patience; patience helps you to find the way ahead, and gives you courage for your journey. - St John Paul II, Alice Springs 1996
O sacred heart of Jesus, I place my trust in thee, Whatever may befall me, Lord, though dark the hour may be; In all my woes, in all my joys, though nought but grief I see, O sacred heart of Jesus, I place my trust in thee.
When those I loved have passed away, and I am sore distressed, O sacred heart of Jesus, I fly to thee for rest. In all my trials, great or small, my confidence shall be Unshaken as I cry, dear Lord, I place my trust in thee.
This is my one sweet prayer, dear Lord, my faith, my trust, my love, But most of all in that last hour, when death points up above, O sweet savior, may thy face smile on my soul all free. Oh may I cry with rapturous love, I’ve placed my trust in thee.
Today was the annual Walk of Witness marking the start of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. After starting at St James Anglican Cathedral, the crowd then went to the council chambers to pray for #Townsville. #walkofwitness
