It is said that our Australian landscape is the face of God,
turned to us and inviting us in. I stand and let its God
energy fill my spirit and drive away any winter blues. As
for the pigeons -- the battle continues.

Savarin is a rich yeast cake, usually ring-shaped and often soaked in a liqueur-flavour ed
syrup. In this recipe a sweet quince syrup is used. Quinces are a tar t but tasty fruit which
must be cooked before eating. Once cooked, the flesh turns rosy pink and a rich, sweet
flavour develops. I hope you will try this delectable dessert.
To make the savarin
Mix the yeast with half the warm milk
and 1 teaspoon of the sugar. Leave in a

When you see in a
table of contents
of an anthology of
the Pope's words,
you know the
be fur ther
by "On Football as a
Metaphor for Life", "On Priests Who
Stray" and "On Tango".
Compiler s Collazo and Rogak have
trawled books , letter s and ser mons of
Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Archbishop, then
Cardinal, in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
They have assembled a vast selection of
pithy statements on a wide variety of
subjects and while the collection invites
readers to dip in and out, the cumulative
effect is an accessible but comprehensive
picture of Pope Francis .
Many of the entries don't have a
specifically religious, much less Catholic,
flavour, but there is plenty of evidence of
wit, wisdom and a cer tain brio.
Preachers seeking to bolster their
argument will find a ready source of
quotable quotes -- but will likely be
distracted as topics as diver se as "On
Baptising the Children of Single Parents",
"On His Fir st Tweet" and "On Par ties
and Par tying" claim their attention !
"On Power", Pope Fr ancis says , "If the
most power ful used all his power to
ser ve and to pardon, he who used his
power for any thing else would end up
And what does he have to say "On
Tango" ? "I like tango. I danced it when
I was young. . . .tango is something that
gives me great pleasure. . ." This collection
too will bring great pleasure.
