Bishop Stuart's Easter message.

Speaking at Easter, The Rt Revd Stuart Robinson, Anglican Bishop of Canberra and Goulburn, joined other Christian leaders to call for support for asylum seekers.

"On Palm Sunday, many of us were standing with those who fled war-torn lands to find a better life in Australia. They wanted to give their children the gift of peace, compassion and an opportunity that many of us take for granted. They have been imprisoned for taking unimaginable risks on the high seas."

Bishop Stuart critised the secrecy of the detention centres, calling them prisons. "Many well-intentioned people try to keep us from seeing what is happening in those overseas prisons. Many try to keep those detained from speaking or seeking legal advice." … nobody could "be silent about behaviour that destroys people's very souls."

"On Good Friday, Jesus took our worst so that on Easter morning, we could be reconciled with him and become a people characterised by peace, compassion and a graciousness that offers others opportunities for a better life."
