Deo Gratia - The 'Rain' has come



After two-and-a-half weeks of sweltering in the humid heat with a broken air conditioning system that was not being fixed, the clergy and lay-staff at Ballarat's Anglican Cathedral and Bishop's Registry, welcomed the rain and associated cool change that arrived late this afternoon.

Perhaps the engineers - who have not been to investigate the problem -  or, latterly,  return desperate calls - think that the church only works on Sunday and so can wait.

Perhaps they have forgotten the many people that come for a free breakfast or  a food parcel and who have also had to endure the oppressive conditions.

Suits have been shed for shorts; cassocks have been closeted for cassalbs, shoes supplanted with  sandals. Prayers are being offered for the chance to sport Boots and Brollies!
