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.

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?'

Unguarded moments: Christmas refuge

24 Dec 2011 | Ann Rennie

We know through our Christmas story that within weeks of his birth, our saviour Jesus Christ was forced to undertake a perilous journey to escape persecution. There must be a special place in His heart for refugees today.


Letter to Steve

12 Dec 2011 | Michael McGirr

A letter to Steve Dear Mr Jobs,
Perhaps it would have been better to have sent this letter before you died but you had such a knack for developing communication gadgets that I am sure you will find a pod or a pad or something in the afterlife to enable you to download messages from earth. I hope that should be upload.

It's a happy coincidence that this edition on science and religion comes out shortly after the beatification of Pope John Paul II.
