Bishop Terry Brady confirmed thirteen young people at St Canice’s this morning. In addressing the newly confirmed, Bishop Terry used the example of Australia’s next saint, Eileen O’Connor by dwelling on her example of holiness and saintliness that she demonstrated in the very short life. – (Eileen was the Founder of Our Lady’s Nurses of the Poor.)
Before confirming the eight candidates, Bishop Terry spoke directly to the young people about the importance of the Sacrament they were about to receive. And, with his usual approachable style, all of us had much to learn from his words of encouragement
