March 2019 Issue 3


Palm Sunday recalls Jesus' somewhat solitary walk.

There is much shouting of hosannas and waving of hands but no real understanding of what is going on. Life, death and eternity are being integrated. That is what is going on.

Our condolences are with our brothers and sisters in Christ of the Greek Orthodox Church of Australia and New Zealand. Greek Orthodox Archbishop of Australia and Primate of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of Australia Archbishop Stylianos Harkianakis passed away on Monday evening 25 March aged 84.
