Unguarded moments: Living the good life

12 Dec 2012 | Ann Rennie

There's a big difference between the 'good life' we're sold in commercials, and the good life God calls us to live.

In the Christmas edition of Australian Catholics, we look at why Catholics go on pilgrimages in search of God.


Unguarded moments: Going away to go home

23 Sep 2012 | Ann Rennie

In the Middle Ages the idea of a pilgrimage was to travel to a shrine or renowned place of worship. This was usually undertaken on foot, in a group, and is well documented via the colourful characters found in Chaucer's Canterbury Tales.


Editorial: What makes a good education?

30 Apr 2012 | Fatima Measham

A letter to: Fr Schneider

30 Apr 2012 | Michael McGirr

Dear Fr Schneider,
I know you won't be looking for this letter as it is not in your nature to ask for praise or thanks. Maybe I need to write it more than you need to read it.


Unguarded moments: At the heart of learning

30 Apr 2012 | Ann Rennie

I loved school. I loved my school, in particular, the school that saw me through from six-year old prep to 18-year old prefect. This was one of the places I learned to be me, to make life-long friends, to build my faith, to believe that the world was waiting for me to take my place in it.


Editorial: What is it that touches your heart?

04 Mar 2012 | Michael McVeigh

What is it that touches your heart? Earlier this year, the international leader of the Society of Jesus Fr Adolfo Nicolas was asked by a young Australian, 'What advice would you give to a young person trying to discern their career or occupational path, who has an interest in serving the poor, but does not necessarily want to dedicate their entire life to this service?'


A letter to: Charles Dickens

04 Mar 2012 | Michael McGirr

Dear Mr Dickens,
I am writing belatedly to wish you many happy returns for your two hundredth birthday and to thank you for all those wonderful books which have been part of my life since I was at school.


Unguarded moments: Picking up the call

04 Mar 2012 | Ann Rennie

When we're doing what God wants us to do, we know it at the depths of our being.
