The other day I finally made it into Sydney during the day; I took the RiverCat ferry from Parramatta to Circular Quay which is right beside the Opera House.As the ferry drew near the city the harbour widened and the final approach to the quayside was quite spectacular, passing under the harbour Bridge and passing alongside the Opera House - which is magnificent.
The glittering buildings of the CBD had been so recently the focus of the Church's life during WYD, especially Sydney's noble Cathedral.
These pictures will evoke great memories for those who took part in that event. Grace has rained down on this new city; visited as it has been by the two great architects of the New Evangelisation. I am already beginning to meet and make contact with many of Christ's agents here.
