THROUGH THE EYES OF OUR CRUCIFIED SAVIOR: BECAUSE HE
GIVES DIRECTION WHEN WE ARE IN DANGER OF LOSING DIRECTION
Fr Frank Santucci OMI
Conversion and discernment are not once-off events. We have major moments of understanding and
conversion and commitment to a life direction and lifestyle – but these have to be renewed on a constant
basis. Each day we need to renew our commitment. Each day we need to allow the Savior to look at us
and to renew us in our journey. Admittedly it gets easier as one practices and grows in habits (and in
age), but we can never let down our guard.
For the first years after his conversion, Eugene struggled to maintain its effects. The following prayer is
found in his notebook of that period:
For a perfect conversion.
How still imperfect, my God, is my conversion; the root of sin lives on in me; the
thoughts and memory of the world are still powerfully at work; the things I have
renounced retain their hold on my imagination, and reawaken threatening
images.
My heart, still weak, is quite disturbed by it, and in the midst of this disturbance
it feels all its passions coming back to life; it takes but little for it to be ensnared.
Is this what it is to belong perfectly to God? My inconstancy in the little good I
do, my God, is no less humiliating for me;
full of good desires, I am often satisfied with their formulation, almost all my
zeal is used up in the making of plans;
I fluctuate between yielding to grace and to my own desires, while time flows
by, I journey swiftly towards eternity, and I am always the same.
Shall I all my life be the plaything of the enemy of my salvation? Make firm, my
God, my inconstancy, wholly change my heart; inspire within me, for my
salvation, the same zeal I showed for losing myself. Sicut enim exhibuistis
membra vestra servire … iniquitati … ita nunc exhibete … servire justitiae (Rm
6, 19) [ed. For just as you presented the parts of your bodies as slaves… to lawlessness … so
now present them… to serve righteousness.
Prayer for a perfect conversion, EO XIV n 24
“The church is not a theological classroom. It is a conversion, confession, repentance, reconciliation,
forgiveness and sanctification center, where flawed people place their faith in Christ, gather to know and
love him better, and learn to love others as he designed.” Paul David Tripp
RESPONSORIAL PSALM:
GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:
Keep me safe, O God; you are my hope
Alleluia, alleluia!
Be watchful, and pray constantly,
that you may be worthy to stand before the Son of Man.
Alleluia!

ARCHDIOCESAN NOTICES
As we continue to find ways across the Archdiocese to engage with and respond to Pope Francis’ Encyclical Laudato Si’, I write to extend an
invitation to you and your parish to participate in the People’s Climate March. This event is a national and global day of action on climate
change, which the Archdiocese and other Christian faith communities are supporting. It will be held in Adelaide on Sunday, November 29th on
the eve of the United Nations Conference of the Parties (COP21) meeting in Paris, where world leaders will gather to decide on the future steps
to address the urgent matter of Climate Change.
The March will be a significant event and is an opportunity for us to join with other multifaith communities in a public way to show our
commitment to renew and deepen our response to being caretakers of God’s creation. With other multifaith leaders I will be leading the March
which will commence from the Torrens Parade Ground at 11am. It will be a family friendly, ‘whole community’ event, concluding with a festival in
Victoria Square.
I recognise that the timing of the March, on the First Sunday of Advent, will conflict with the celebration of Mass in many parishes and
communities. I would however appreciate you promote this march for those who are able might be present and participate in a concerted effort
of solidarity. Parish banners are encouraged.
Further information is available through Chancellor, Heather Carey on 8210 8210.
With regards,
Fr Philip Marshall
Vicar General
