Defence Sunday 2020 homily

“Veterans long for the love of family, friends, mates, communities and even our nation, but true healing only comes from the love of God…In the decades since I last went to war, I have worked with those wounded in body, mind and spirit.

Rob Sutherland in this Defence Sunday homily
