Downunder Plain Catholics

Those of us who are Plain Catholic in the Southern Hemisphere are now in our spring season. Our conversations with our Plain Catholic brothers and sisters in the Northern Hemisphere always includes the phrase: "Oh that's right, you're opposite us in the seasons!" Right now the Oz Plain Catholics and the Kiwi Plain Catholics are planting tomatoes, beans and other spring veg. Our Northern Hemi cousins are putting their gardens to bed and planting the brassicas.

It's easy to be wrapped up in our own hemispheres isn't it? We need always to encourage each other to remember the other and how everyone is a unique and precious gift of God regardless of whether they are difficult or easy personalities. Let's remember St. Thérèse of Lisieux and her total abandonment to God and His Holy Son, Jesus. She reminds us to always come out of our own hemispheres and to enter into the greater mystery of our Faith.

God bless you all everywhere in this old world.

And it often seems odd to us that they are in a different season to us!
