As we approach the final Sunday of the Year of Mercy I couldn't help but pause for a moment and reflect on how the Lord has touched our lives this past year and poured out His abundant mercy on us all. In truth, my first thought was "Wow. Where on earth has this year gone?" My second thought was "Well, now what?"
The answer? It could not be more simple... We continue to seek His mercy. Yes, you may have to walk through an ordinary door, but the confessional will still always be on the other side.
It's been too long since we had a young person on our favourite pew at the Cathedral and thus we present to you an interview with Sebastian Porral, adventure junkie, devout Catholic and local photography student.
Sebastian is responsible for the "Works of Mercy exhibition" currently on display at the Shrine of Our Lady of Europe and so we thought the world needed to know how this came about...
Before we get started on the exhibition, talk to me about Sebastian Porral. What do you like to do?
I am seventeen years old, attend Bayside school, and apart from photography enjoy flying drones, surfing, making videos (youtube)...
