I think you showed up on my face book feed from our Diocese – not even sure now! So glad I found you. I agree with the letter you just read about the gentleman who wished he had known this as a young person. I agree. I think that is why we have lost so many people in the Catholic church. They don’t really get it. Hard to really understand what the bible is telling us unless you take in a bible study or listen to someone like you. Thanks you for what you do. I have forwarded your website… Read more »

Dear Bruce I heard you read that little email from the 60-year-old woman. I echo her sentiments exactly. I also am in my 60s and I just found you during Lent. It would have been great if you came around sooner! But you’re here now. Lol. 😊 The thing I like most about you is that you’re all the way on the other side of the world and yet you bring that Aussie down-to-earthness to a faith that can sometimes misunderstood because of a self righteous air of some. I am a convert from the Orthodox faith which I still… Read more »

Hear hear to the 60 + year old person who wrote to you. I agree wholeheartedly. If, as young people, we could have heard these views of yours, we could have turned out very closer to God.

I agree. I am 70+, and if I had heard this in my twenties maybe my life would have turned out very differently. But, better late than never!

Hi Bruce and ministry team, What beautiful message both in the introduction and the gospel passage. I have been following you since i first heard of you and you gave a evening retreat at Infant Jesus parish around the year 2000, and have always managed to attend your wonderful local retreats and since you returned to Australia due to the Covid pandemic I’ve never missed your morning walking daily with God series and the longer Sunday talks. I also agree with the comments here of those that have replied to you and i remember reading the others that were listed… Read more »

Thankyou Bruce. I have been listening to your devotional for the past year. They have so richly deepened my faith life. I rarely miss a daily devotional and look forward to receiving them each day.

Thank you, Bruce. I have been following your different series for many years now and can’t remember how I came across your website, although I think someone passed it on to me. You are so inspiring, particularly in relation to the Holy Spirit, and I have learned so much from your clear and concise way of explaining and interpreting the Bible for us.

Thank you Bruce for your Spirit filled messages about our God. I can see & hear your guidance of the Holy Spirit in you. I get overwhelmed too. I thank God for your courage, conviction & love of The Word. Bless you. 🙏🙏 I think your website was offered as a reflection site amongst our Plenary Council paperwork, for further study.

Thank you Bruce for this very relevant message today! Today I managed to write down my PERSONAL prayer for the first time in a long time! When it came to N for Nourish I opened the Bible to the scripture verses Mathew 12: 33 -37 with a sub heading of A Tree and It’s Fruits!!! When I first read the scripture verses, I was challenged to say the least!!! I thank You Lord for clarifying this scripture verses as well as the scripture passage for today!!!Through Bruce!!! May the Lord continue to BLESS you and Rosemary and all who work… Read more »

Thank you Bruce and team. As a traditional catholic, I always find our mass sermons hard to understand, and often I find myself switching off. Not with you though! You make them relevant, interesting and not too long. Well, most of the time! God bless what you do.

Always good Bruce, I love to read the comments of others, I am encouraged so many being changed and alive by your ministry. What God as given us is a gift of life on this earth and in eternity that is beyond and more valuable than anything this world can offer. I am still amazed that so many have never grasped this life with both hands or have turned away from it. There is something that Jesus said, “that hearts will become cold and they shall turn away from the light and choose darkness and death.” That has been happening… Read more »

Thank you for being so humble I enjoyed every morning listening to you!
I have been listening since Lent of this year 2021, and I totally understand what you preach, specially about the “HOLLY SPIRIT” I never knew this.
Thank you.

Dear Bruce,

I was I make a donation more every week I will try to give twice a month, for you spreading the word of God. I have been with you since Advent, and found you on Facebook, and have been with you ever since. May God Bless you and your family, I pray.

I totally agree regarding those who wrote in expressing their wish “if you’d only been there during their youth”. I attended Catholic School in a big city where catechism class was thorough, but my children were unable to as there was no such school in our town though they did attend catechism class after mass on Sundays taught by a variety of volunteers. Once a week was not near enough time to explain well or truely understand. Now though, because if you, small towns/cities where Catholic/christian schools may not exist, having your 10 minute daily clear, concise, heart felt explanations… Read more »

I use a St. Ignatius Bible. For Lent a few years ago I used my parents Bible (back in the 60’s) it took all of Lent to read it. I heard on a Religious Station in the USA about the Ignatius Bible. It is bigger, BUT the print is bigger and does not have thee’s and thou’s and you can understand the Bible better. Thank you for all you do for the Catholic Faith. GOD BLESS.

Some teachers have that special “nack” for getting through to many many more. I’ve known a couple.
You also have that God given talent. Thank you for sharing yours with the world 🌎 .

I find myself waking early, eager to learn more of the Holy Spirit. The teaching on this has been lacking through my church life. Thankyou Bruce for enriching my Christian walk as I come into a deeper connection with my Lord. You are doing a good thing indeed.

I too am wondering why I did not find someone like you before. I often look up help with guidance through lent. That is how I found you. I sure wish I knew you were talking when my children were young and still part of our “chruch” experience. Anyway, you give me hope .
If I found you at age 68 perhaps my children will find someone later in their lives.
