The presence of God

19 Mar 2018 | Fr Andrew Hamilton

Easter gives us hope and is the fulfilment of God’s promise to be present in our lives.

From big things, even bigger things may grow

05 Feb 2018 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

While the decade since the Apology to Australia’s Indigenous has not lived up to the historic event’s promise, hope for a better future continues.

Messengers of God

05 Feb 2018 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

Prophet HannahThe Old Testament prophets spoke out when society had gone down the wrong track, and moved away from God's plan for the Jewish people. Today's prophetic voices do much the same thing.

Prayer blog: Light and darkness

15 Nov 2017 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

If a trouble-struck government decided to hold a plebiscite for people to choose between Light and Darkness, Light would win in a landslide. But in fact, our natural condition is to live in shadow and to protect ourselves against the light. 

Explorations: A journey into freedom

01 Nov 2017 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

Freedom is a central theme for Christians – from Jesus’ proclamation that he came to free the oppressed, to current debates around the role of religion in our society. Where does our understanding of the term come from, and how does it shape the way we live and engage with people who are different to us? 

Catholic Teacher Blog: Social Justice Sunday - September 24

24 Sep 2017 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

If you want to stay happy and healthy you need to draw on the skills of cooks and dieticians. You also need them to stick to their own skills. Ask a dietician for a happy recipe and you may eat miserably. Ask a pastry cook to care for your diet and you may become a cardiac disaster.

Catholic Teacher Blog: Suicide Prevention Day - September 10

09 Sep 2017 | Andrew Hamilton SJ

Suicide affects all groups in society. Teachers, doctors, miners, church ministers, and police have all grieved for colleagues who have taken their own lives, and have friends who have survived the suicide of family members. They can put faces to suicide.

Communities in the Church

09 Aug 2017 | Andrew Hamilton SJ

Human beings have always been in two minds about connecting with one another. We long for connection, but when we do connect we often fight and destroy one another. As a result people have always dreamed of islands where they and their close friends can be safe and have surrounded their castles with moats to shut others out. 

Catholic Teacher Blog: World Humanitarian Day - August 19

09 Aug 2017 | Fr Andrew Hamilton

World Humanitarian Day was instituted to remember people who have served in humanitarian missions and especially those who have lost their lives in the course of their service. It is an opportunity to call to mind the people who have gone before us, and especially to honour our martyrs. These include Christians who were killed because of their faith or because they recognised how precious each human being is regardless of race or religion, and dedicated their lives to serve them when they were under threat. They both inspire us and keep us honest.

Catholic Teacher Blog: Indigenous Peoples of World Day - August 9

02 Aug 2017 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

United Nations Days are like Saints Days in the Catholic Calendars. They are reminders of the wider world beyond our own homes, cities and nations, often reminders of the violence inflicted on good people, and are also occasions for thanksgiving and celebration.
