Prayer blog: Becoming more human

22 Nov 2017 | Michael McVeigh

Reconciliation with creation isn’t just about changing the way our society uses resources and impacts on the environment. It’s also about reconsidering how we live in the world and relate to each other as individuals.


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. 


Prayer blog: Ripples

08 Nov 2017 | Brendan Nicholls

Throughout November the Church remembers those who have died and rest eternally with God. Here is one way you can remember them each day. 


Prayer blog: Eradication of Poverty Day

15 Oct 2017 | Andy Hamilton SJ

We usually think of poverty as something that afflicts third world nations. But it is also present in Australia – shamefully so, in a nation of great wealth. We can see its effects in the lives of Indigenous Australians, with their poorer life expectancy income and educational opportunities, and greater likelihood of addiction, hospitalisation and jailing.


Prayer blog: Prayer and peace

24 Sep 2017 | Fr Ian Radvan, SJ

Those of us with ready access to various media are aware that we are being bombarded from every side with reports of violence: domestic violence, murders, robberies, suicide bombers, diplomatic spats, war, street protests, sexual abuse and even in nature.


Prayer blog: Pope Francis encourages devotion to the Sacred Heart

19 Sep 2017 | Philip Kosloski

On Saturday Pope Francis received a delegation from the Society of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart. He gave a short address and specifically mentioned their devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, encouraging them to 'return to your first and only love.'


Prayer blog: How about that weather?

11 Sep 2017 | Brendan Nicholls

It certainly has been a wet year. At Saint Ignatius College we have been flooded twice and survived a recent close call. We have spent many lunchtimes indoors as ‘the heavens opened’ during break times. Our football oval still has an average of two centimetres of water over the entire surface and the road near our school was 30cm under water for a second time last week.


PrayerBlog: Making meaning in our lives

16 Aug 2017 | Peter Hosking, SJ

Finding joy during the darker times will come easier if we practise finding meaning in the little things every day.


PrayerBlog: The Treasure Within

01 Aug 2017 | Susie Hii

A beggar had been sitting by the side of a road for over thirty years. One day a stranger walked by.


The Strength and Blessing of Indigenous Family Life

27 Jun 2017 | Australian Catholic Bishops

The following is an edited excerpt from the Pastoral Letter from the Australian Catholic Bishops for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Sunday 2017:

Just a few months ago an Aboriginal Elder in the Kimberley, well advanced in years and at that time in poor health, wrote a letter a few weeks before his death. It was written in copperplate style, in blue ink on thin note paper and was several pages long. His instructions were that the priest at his funeral might share the letter with the mourners in attendance at the church.
