Buildings and foibles at Toowong
'If Peter Quin were here, he would probably make some comment about being all 'massed out'. We celebrated the wonderful funeral for Peter on Friday 2 December. On 3 December we were in St Stephen's Cathedral with Archbishop Coleridge formally marking the centenary of the arrival of the Jesuits at Toowong. This evening, we celebrate the last Eucharist of the centenary year, the second Sunday of Advent.' Address by Fr Frank Brennan SJ

Each Mass makes me ask why they would want to celebrate Christmas. And each highlights for me the difference between our cultural celebration of Christmas and its Christian roots.
