Pope Francis has appointed a new Archbishop of Sydney, Archbishop-elect Anthony Fisher.
This photo taken on another occasion at St Mary’s Cathedral a while ago captures the man perfectly. He has a great intellect and a great heart for God and for people. And he’s funny. He once began a homily with that quote about pretzels from Seinfield, remember it? “These pretzels are making me thirsty!”
What more can you want?

In other news of less widespread importance but vital to my mum, I’m currently being featured on the CRADIO website (Sydney’s Catholic online radio), talking a bit about myself, faith, and family life. You can click through and listen here. Please keep in mind that I’m not used to being on the ‘other’ side of an interview – but I think it’s ok!
If you’re visiting this blog from the CRADIO website – WELCOME! I hope you enjoy looking around here, and you’re welcome to subscribe or join my Facebook page so we can stay in touch.
The interview tells a bit more about me that I haven’t had time to write here. Hopefully it reveals where I’m coming from in my work on this blog and in other places. There is much work to be done to bring peace to our world and I really believe it starts with families – with what we mothers and fathers do day in, day out. And, most importantly, how we do it.
It goes for 25 minutes, I hope you enjoy it. CRADIO regularly produces interesting and inspiring podcasts and interviews from around Australia and overseas and I was very honoured to be invited to chat with the lovely Sarah Juszczak.
Also, here is the HILARIOUS piece on living with kids by comedian Michael MacIntyre which Sarah refers to at the beginning of our interview. It made me cry, in a good way. You’ll have to click through here.
The sun is shining, it’s the last day of school term here – Happy Days! Have a great, blessed weekend.
