Reconciliation & Journey of Healing Eucharist

Wel­come to our wor­ship this morning!

Even in utter des­pair the Psalm­ist finds hope, telling us that with the Lord there is mercy, for­give­ness, and ample redemp­tion. May we real­ise this, know­ing that we can start with a clean slate in God’s eyes, if we would only put our trust in the divine mercy.

The Pro­fes­sion of Faith used in this liturgy is from the Abori­gin­al Cath­ol­ic Min­istry, Mel­bourne. The oth­er pray­ers are from the liturgy that the Nation­al Abori­gin­al and Torres Strait Islander Cath­ol­ic Coun­cil (NATSICC) developed for Sorry Day, 2004, from the WA Recon­cili­ation Inter-Faith Work­ing Group, and from the Abori­gin­al Cath­ol­ic Min­istry, Victoria.

Introit Hymn: TIS 668 – Touch the Earth Lightly

  1. Touch the earth lightly,use the earth gently,
    nour­ish the life of the world in our care;
    gift of great wonder,
    ours to surrender,
    trust for the chil­dren tomor­row will bear.
  1. We who endanger,
    who cre­ate hunger,
    agents of death for all creatures that live,
    we who would foster
    clouds of disaster,
    God of our plan­et, fore­stall and forgive!
  1. Let there be greening
    birth from the burning,
    water that blesses and air that is sweet.
    health in God’s garden,
    hope in God’s children,
    regen­er­a­tion that peace will complete.
  1. God of all living,
    God of all loving,
    God of the seed­ling, the snow and the sun,
    teach us, deflect us,
    Christ recon­nect us,
    using us gently, and mak­ing us one.

The Sen­tence:  Be imit­at­ors of God, as beloved chil­dren, and live in love, as Christ loved us and gave him­self up for us.                    Eph­esians 5:1–2


Rect­or: We begin today’s liturgy by togeth­er acknow­ledging the tra­di­tion­al cus­todi­ans of the land on which we gath­er today.

(Acknow­ledge­ment of Country)

We acknow­ledge the Eora as the ori­gin­al cus­todi­ans of this land where we are gathered this morn­ing. We pay our respects to their Eld­ers, past and present, and to Abori­gin­al people liv­ing in our com­munity today. We com­mit ourselves to act­ively work along­side Indi­gen­ous people for recon­cili­ation and justice.

The Col­lect     (we pray together)

God of justice and forgiveness,
Guide us as we con­tin­ue on our jour­ney of Recon­cili­ation — a jour­ney about both heal­ing the past and shap­ing the future. Grant us the cour­age to speak out against the injustices that our Indi­gen­ous broth­ers and sis­ters con­tin­ue to suf­fer. Help us to see with new eyes, to listen to the stor­ies of our Indi­gen­ous broth­ers and sis­ters and to feel with a heart of com­pas­sion. Help us to build right rela­tions with each oth­er based on truth and justice.
We ask this pray­er through Christ our Lord. Amen.


First Read­ing                                                              Pro­verbs 8: 1–4; 22–31

A read­ing from the Book of Proverbs
Does not wis­dom call, and does not under­stand­ing raise her voice?
On the heights, beside the way, at the cross­roads she takes her stand;
Beside the gates in front of the town, at the entrance of the portals she cries out:
‘To you, O people, I call, and my cry is to all that live.  The Lord cre­ated me at the begin­ning* of his work,  the first of his acts of long ago.

Ages ago I was set up, at the first, before the begin­ning of the earth.
When there were no depths I was brought forth, when there were no springs abound­ing with water.  Before the moun­tains had been shaped, before the hills, I was brought forth — when he had not yet made earth and fields, or the world’s first bits of soil.

When he estab­lished the heav­ens, I was there, when he drew a circle on the face of the deep, when he made firm the skies above, when he estab­lished the foun­tains of the deep, when he assigned to the sea its lim­it, so that the waters might not trans­gress his com­mand, when he marked out the found­a­tions of the earth, then I was beside him, like a mas­ter work­er; and I was daily his delight, rejoicing before him always, rejoicing in his inhab­ited world and delight­ing in the human race.

For the word of the Lord                                             Thanks be to God

Psalm:  133.1- 4

1  Behold how good and how | lovely – it | is:
when broth­ers | live to-| geth­er – in | unity.

2  It is fra­grant as oil upon the head * that runs down | over – the | beard:
fra­grant as oil upon the beard of Aaron *
that ran down over the | col­lar | of his | robe.

3  It is like a | dew of | Hermon:
like the dew that falls up-| on the | hill of | Zion.

4  For there the Lord has com-| man­ded – his | blessing:
which is | life for | ever-|  more.

Glo-| ry to | God: Fath­er | Son and | Holy | Spirit;
As in the be-| gin­ning so | now; and for-| ever. | A-| men


Second Read­ing                                                          2 Cor­inthi­ans 5: 17–19

A read­ing from Paul’s Second Let­ter to the Corinthians

So if any­one is in Christ, there is a new cre­ation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!  All this is from God, who recon­ciled us to him­self through Christ, and has giv­en us the min­istry of recon­cili­ation; that is, in Christ God was recon­cil­ing the world to him­self,* not count­ing their tres­passes against them, and entrust­ing the mes­sage of recon­cili­ation to us.

For the word of the Lord                                             Thanks be to God

Dur­ing the Gos­pel Pro­ces­sion — Good­ness is stronger than evil

Gos­pel acclamation: 

 Alle­lu­ia, alle­lu­ia, alle­lu­ia, alleluia!
God was in Christ, to recon­cile the | world to him | self:
And the Good News of recon­cili­ation he | has en | trus­ted to | us.
Alle­lu­ia, alle­lu­ia, alle­lu­ia, alleluia!


The Gos­pel                                                                  Mat­thew 5: 1–10

The Gos­pel of our Lord Jesus Christ accord­ing to Matthew

X Glory to you, Lord Jesus Christ

When Jesus* saw the crowds, he went up the moun­tain; and after he sat down, his dis­ciples came to him.
Then he began to speak, and taught them, saying:
‘Blessed are the poor in spir­it, for theirs is the king­dom of heaven.
‘Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.
‘Blessed are the meek, for they will inher­it the earth.
‘Blessed are those who hun­ger and thirst for right­eous­ness, for they will be filled.
‘Blessed are the mer­ci­ful, for they will receive mercy.
‘Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.
‘Blessed are the peace­makers, for they will be called chil­dren of God.
‘Blessed are those who are per­se­cuted for right­eous­ness’ sake, for theirs is the king­dom of heaven.

For the Gos­pel of the Lord                  Praise to you Lord Jesus Christ

Hymn after the Ser­mon- TIS 607: Make me a Chan­nel of Your Peace

Make me a chan­nel of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me bring Your love,
Where there is injury, Your par­don Lord,
And where there’s doubt, true faith in You.

Oh Mas­ter, grant that I may nev­er seek,
So much to be con­soled as to console,
To be under­stood, as to understand,
To be loved, as to love with all my soul.

Make me a chan­nel of your peace,
Where there’s des­pair in life let me bring hope,
Where there is dark­ness — only light,
And where there’s sad­ness, ever joy.

Oh Mas­ter, grant that I may nev­er seek,
So much to be con­soled as to console,
To be under­stood, as to understand,
To be loved, as to love with all my soul.

Make me a chan­nel of your peace,
It is in par­don­ing that we are pardoned,
In giv­ing to all men that we receive,
And in dying that we’re born to etern­al life.

Oh Mas­ter, grant that I may nev­er seek,
So much to be con­soled as to console,
To be under­stood, as to understand,
To be loved, as to love with all my soul.

Make me a chan­nel of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me bring Your love,
Where there is injury, Your par­don Lord,
And where there’s doubt, true faith in You.

Pro­fes­sion of Faith

We believe in God as our Father
who moth­ers us with com­pas­sion and love,
the cre­at­or of light, desert, dark­ness and rain,
of oceans, cit­ies, rainforests,
and of all that breathes in this our Aus­trali­an land.
We believe in Jesus, gift of our God,
who jour­neys with us,
who chal­lenges and calls us, the community,
to build justice and live in peace.
We believe in the Spir­it that breathes life in a cre­at­ing force.
We believe in Jesus, born of a Vir­gin Mary, whose life,
death and resur­rec­tion resounds in us
through com­munit­ies gathered to break bread
and share wine.
We believe in the story of the proph­ets, old and new,
and our Cath­ol­ic tra­di­tion and in the cel­eb­ra­tion of all saints.
We believe in our peace­ful world,
and our role to live the Gospel
with our broth­ers and sisters.

Pray­ers of the People

Lov­ing God,
On this day we acknow­ledge the Abori­gin­al and Torres Strait Islander people through­out Aus­tralia. We turn to you in pray­er and seek the help of the Holy Spir­it as we com­mit ourselves to jour­ney­ing togeth­er in a spir­it of Reconciliation.

We pray in thanks­giv­ing for the way in which Indi­gen­ous peoples have cared for the land. Enable us to work togeth­er to pre­serve our fra­gile environment.

We pray for a bet­ter under­stand­ing and respect between all peoples of our coun­try. Help us as we grow to appre­ci­ate one anoth­er. In your eyes, we are one. Help us to see you, Lord, in each per­son cre­ated by you, so we may freely love and accept one another.

Lord hear us.

Lord hear our prayer. 


Pray­er for the Jour­ney of Heal­ing (we say together)

Dear God

We who have come from every land give thanks for Australia;
this earth that feeds us;
the shores that bind us;
the skies that envel­op us in freedom.

We stand togeth­er, united as one people:
proud of our abil­ity to work together;
grate­ful for our gifts;
nour­ished by our diversity and our harmony.
Yet we turn to the ori­gin­al people of this land
and see, too, what we have taken.

We weep for their loss of free­dom, of coun­try, of children -
even of their very lives
We stand in awe at their sur­viv­al, and in debt for their land.
We have shad­ows in our his­tory which, if unfaced, dimin­ish us.
We have taken without asking;
Our nation has taken without asking;
Lives are wounded.
We see the pain, feel the sor­row and seek forgiveness.
Let us look back with cour­age; see the truth and speak it.
Let us look around with com­pas­sion; see the cost and share it.
Let us look for­ward with hope; see what can be and cre­ate it.
Give us cour­age to face the truth; com­pas­sion to share the burden,
strength to play our part in the healing,
and hope to walk for­ward to a place of justice.
With cour­age, com­pas­sion, strength and hope, we will walk togeth­er on the jour­ney of healing.

Cel­eb­rant:       Almighty God who has prom­ised for­give­ness to all who turn to him in faith, X par­don you and set you free from your sins, strengthen you in all good­ness and keep you in etern­al life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen

We stand for the Greet­ing of Peace

Cel­eb­rant:       We are the body of Christ
All:      His Spir­it is with us.

Cel­eb­rant:       The peace of the Lord be always with you,
All:      And also with you.


Offer­tory Hymn: TIS 658 — I The Lord of Sea and Sky (Daniel Schutte 1947)

  1. I, the Lord of sea and sky,
    I have heard my people cry.
    All who dwell in dark and sin,
    My hand will save.
    I, who made the stars of night,
    I will make their dark­ness bright.
    Who will bear my light to them?
    Whom shall I send?

    Here am I, Lord.  Is it I Lord?
    I have heard you call­ing in the night.
    I will go Lord, if you lead me.
    I will hold your people in my heart.

  1. I, the Lord of snow and rain,
    I have borne my people’s pain,
    I have wept for love of them.
    They turn away.
    I will break their hearts of stone,
    Give them hearts for love alone,
    I will speak my words to them.
    Whom shall I send?
  1. I, the Lord of wind and flame,
    I will send the poor and lame,
    I will set a feast for them,
    My hand will save.
    Finest bread I will provide,
    ‘Til their hearts be satisfied,
    I will give my life to them.
    Whom shall I send?


 At the Offer­tory: As well as bring­ing candles, the con­greg­a­tion are invited to bring red, black & yel­low paper hands (avail­able with the candles at the back of the church) and place them in the con­tain­er at altar, as a sym­bol of Reconciliation. 


Hymn dur­ing Com­mu­nion;  Behold, behold I make all things new



Pray­er after Eucharist 

Holy God, in this sac­ra­ment we have received the body and blood of your Son whom we proudly pro­claim as light of the world and sun of justice. Hear our pray­er that we might always walk in that light and work for justice and recon­cili­ation of all people in our land. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.

We pray togeth­er the Clos­ing Prayer:

Cre­at­or of all things,
both seen and unseen.
Make us strong as we seek;
speak to us in your great wisdom.
Grant us your help and guidance.
Teach us to love all people
regard­less of race or col­our or belief.
May we listen with great care
to the heart­beat of this land
and to its people
who cared for it so well
and for so long.
May the peace these people and their land
have always enjoyed
con­tin­ue to be strengthened and preserved
by all who wish to come and be part of
this coun­try and its Ancient Dreaming. 

(Used with the per­mis­sion of Eliza­beth Pike, 1998).

Dur­ing the final hymn the col­oured hands from altar are taken out in the pro­ces­sion, for the chil­dren to plant around the coastal Bank­sia in the Jour­ney of Heal­ing garden.


Final Hymn: TIS – 416 – Great God your Spirit

(Tune: Jer­u­s­alem by Charles Hubert Parry; Words by Alan Gaunt 1935)

  1. Great God your Spir­it like the wind
    unseen but shak­ing things we see
    will nev­er leave us undisturbed.
    Ful­fil our dreams or set us free
    until we turn from faith­less fear
    and prove the prom­ise of your grace
    in justice, peace and daily bread
    with joy for all the human race.
  1. Lord, shake us with the faith of love
    to rouse us from our dread­ful sleep.
    Remove our hearts of stone, and give
    new hearts of flesh to break and weep
    for all your chil­dren in distress
    and dying for the wealth we keep.
    Help us pre­vent while we have time,
    the blighted har­vest greed must reap.
  1. And then, in your compassion,
    give your spir­it like the gentle rain
    cre­at­ing fer­tile ground from which
    your peace and justice spring like grain;
    until your love is satisfied,
    with all cre­ation freed from pain,
    and all your chil­dren live to praise
    your will ful­filled, your pres­ence plain.

 We have held our Recon­cili­ation and Heal­ing Ser­vice at St Luke’s since 2005.

“Com­mu­nic­a­tion is the key. Cre­at­ing dia­logue between those of oth­er faiths as well as those from oth­er cul­tures is recon­cili­ation at its best.” Dr Elsie Heiss.

Incor­por­ated into our Sunday ser­vice is a chance for us to acknow­ledge the tra­di­tion­al cus­todi­ans of the land on which St Luke’s is built, and to offer our pray­ers for Recon­cili­ation with the Indi­gen­ous people of Aus­tralia. Our liturgy includes pray­ers developed by the Nation­al Abori­gin­al and Torres Strait Islander Cath­ol­ic Coun­cil (NATSICC).

In the place of the Ser­mon, we invite an Abori­gin­al guest to talk to us. Our guest and speak­er this year is Wir­ad­juri Eld­er, Dr Elsie Heiss.

Elsie vis­ited us in 2010 and talked about her per­son­al jour­ney. This time, she has chosen to talk about Spir­itu­al­ity. For those of us who remem­ber Elsie’s last vis­it, this is a won­der­ful oppor­tun­ity to deep­en our rela­tion­ship and under­stand­ing.  For new­comers, it is a chance to meet one of the very import­ant Eld­ers of Sydney’s Abori­gin­al Cath­ol­ic Ministry.

Ori­gin­ally from Cowra, for many years Elsie has lived in the Bot­any Bay area, where she takes an inspir­a­tion­al lead­er­ship role in the Recon­cili­ation Church at La Perouse. Awar­ded the 2003 NAIDOC Com­munity Award, she was named NAT­SIC­C’s Eld­er of the Year In 2009, and ganted an Hon­or­ary Doc­tor of Arts by the Uni­ver­sity of Notre Dame the fol­low­ing year.
