    ~ Have a happy week, Fr Paul

    Dear friends, It has been announced during the week that the New South Wales Parlia-ment will introduce a draft Bill allowing terminally ill people to voluntari-ly end their lives, with the bill receiving cross-party support. The Bill would give access to medically-assisted euthanasia to people over 25 who are expected to die within a year. The draft laws have cross-party support and will be introduced to the NSW parliament in coming months. Broken Bay Bishop Peter Comensoli, who is the bishop's delegate for life issues, believes it's a dangerous move and warns it could be a slippery slope. "There's all sorts of changes that will come about," Bishop Comensoli said. "The doctor-patient relationship changes, our attitude towards the vul-nerable changes, the government and the medical profession get into the business of killing. All that changes with this legislation." Bishop Comensoli said the Bill could undermine family relationships and change attitudes about helping people as they're dying. And he fears it would lead to Australia following countries such as Hol-land, Belgium and Canada, where euthanasia is legal. "Belgium for instance now allows children as young as 12 to be eu-thanised," he said. "It is not because they are necessarily dying. In Holland there is no long-er a requirement that someone be terminally ill. This is already happen-ing." Voluntary euthanasia and assisted suicide are currently illegal in all Australian states and territories. ( quotes from Broken Bay Diocese Web-site).

    Background on the Gospel Reading

    Todays Gospel is a continuation of last weeks Gospel: Jesus is speaking to his disciples at the Last Supper.

    In todays reading Jesus offers encouragement to his disciples, who will soon see him crucified. He reassures them that even though he will leave them, he will not abandon them. Instead he will send them the Advo-

    cate, the Holy Spirit, through whom the disciples will continue to live in union with Jesus.

    Jesus uses the term Advocate to describe the Holy Spirit, whom the disciples will receive. Another word used

    to describe the Holy Spirit is Paraclete, a legal term meaning one who offers defense for another. Note that

    Jesus says that he will send another Advocate. Jesus himself is the first advocate, interceding for his disci-

    ples with the Father. In todays reading Jesus contrasts his impending departure with the permanence of the gift of the Holy Spir-

    it. Jesus will leave to return to the Father, but the Holy Spirit will remain with the disciples.

    Through the gift of the Holy Spirit, the disciples will come to know and appreciate the unity of the Son and

    the Father. They will also understand that they too participate in the communion between the Father and

    the Son: On that day you will realize that I am in my Father and you are in me and I in you (John 14:20). Todays reading is one example of the contrast that Johns Gospel presents between the community of disci-

    ples, to whom God will reveal himself, and the unbelieving world, which will remain in darkness. The unbe-

    lieving world cannot accept the Spirit of truth, whom the disciples will receive. Only through the Spirit will

    Gods revelation and love be known.

    Festival of Food

    To celebrate Pentecost on Sunday 4 June, the Birthday

    of the Church, Regina Coeli

    Parish will be holding a Festi-

    val of Food. To register your

    cultural dish please pick up a

    pink form and return it by 28 May. There will be no morning tea after the 8.30am Mass this month.

    10 Rules of Life:

    I will live the present moment to the fullest. I will discern between God and Gods works.

    I will hold firmly to one secret: prayer.

    I will see in the holy Eucharist my only power.

    I will have only one wisdom: the science of the cross.

    I will remain faithful to my mission in the Church

    and for the Church as a witness of Jesus Christ. I will seek the peace the world cannot give.

    I will carry out a revolution by renewal in the Holy

    Spirit.

    I will speak one language and wear one uniform:

    charity. I will have one very special love: the Blessed Virgin

    Mary.

  • First Reading Acts 8:5-8. 14-17

    A reading from the Acts of the Apostles

    Philip went to a Samaritan town and proclaimed the Christ to them. The people united in welcoming the

    message Philip preached, either because they had

    heard of the miracles he worked or because they saw

    them for themselves. There were, for example, unclean

    spirits that came shrieking out of many who were pos-

    sessed, and several paralytics and cripples were cured. As a result there was great rejoicing in that town.

    When the apostles in Jerusalem heard

    that Samaria had accepted the word of God, they sent

    Peter and John to them, and they went down there,

    and prayed for the Samaritans to receive the Holy Spir-it, for as yet he had not come down on any of them:

    they had only been baptised in the name of the Lord

    Jesus. Then they laid hands on them, and they re-

    ceived the Holy Spirit.

    The Word of the Lord

    Responsorial Psalm

    (R.) Let all the earth cry out to God with joy.

    1. Cry out with joy to God all the earth,

    O sing to the glory of his name.

    O render him glorious praise. Say to God: How tremendous your deeds! (R.)

    2. Before you all the earth shall bow;

    shall sing to you, sing to your name!

    Come and see the works of God,

    tremendous his deeds among men. (R.)

    3. He turned the sea into dry land,

    they passed through the river dry-shod.

    Let our joy then be in him;

    he rules for ever by his might. (R.)

    4. Come and hear, all who fear God. I will tell what he did for my soul:

    Blessed be God who did not reject my prayer

    nor withhold his love from me. (R.)

    Second Reading 1 Pt 3:15-18

    A reading from the first letter of St Peter Reverence the Lord Christ in your hearts, and always

    have your answer ready for people who ask you the

    reason for the hope that you all have. But give it with

    courtesy and respect and with a clear conscience, so

    that those who slander you when you are living a good life in Christ may be proved wrong in the accusations

    that they bring. And if it is the will of God that you

    should suffer, it is better to suffer for doing right than

    for doing wrong.

    Why, Christ himself, innocent though he was, had died

    once for sins, died for the guilty, to lead us to God. In the body he was put to death, in the spirit he was

    raised to life.

    The Word of the Lord

    Gospel Acclamation

    Alleluia, alleluia!

    All who love me will keep my words, and my Father will love them and we will come to

    them.

    Alleluia!

    Gospel Jn 14:15-21

    A reading from the holy Gospel according to John

    Jesus said to his disciples:

    If you love me you will keep my command-

    ments.

    I shall ask the Father,

    and he will give you another Advocate to be with you for ever,

    that Spirit of truth

    whom the world can never receive

    since it neither sees nor knows him;

    but you know him,

    because he is with you, he is in you. I will not leave you orphans;

    I will come back to you.

    In a short time the world will no longer see me;

    but you will see me,

    because I live and you will live. On that day

    you will understand that I am in my Father

    and you in me and I in you.

    Anybody who receives my commandments and

    keeps them

    will be one who loves me; and anybody who loves me will be loved by my

    Father,

    and I shall love him and show myself to him.
