A letter to Bob Dylan

01 Feb 2017 | Michael McGirr

Dear Bob Dylan, I respond to much in the way of correspondence. Even the committee that awarded you the Nobel Prize for Literature didn’t hear much back from you and a letter from me is hardly in the same category. 


A concerted effort

01 Feb 2017 | James O’Brien

At the age of eight I began to learn how to play a small cello. Alex Zivkovic, an accomplished cellist, would be my teacher for 15 years. In meeting the Zivkovic family, musicians through seven generations in Serbia and now Australia, I was to have a connection to living musical history. In their house Beethoven’s spirit came alive.

How can we as Catholics better embody the mercy of God in the way we live out our faith in the world?


Mercy notes: Mercy in the Church

31 Oct 2016 | Peter Fleming

Doctors are devoted to mercy and St Luke was a member of that profession. No surprise then, that his gospel contains a wonderful sequence of parables of mercy. In Chapter 15 he gives us the stories of the Lost Sheep, the Lost Coin and – most famous of all – the parable of the Prodigal Son.

A letter to Mother Cabrini

31 Oct 2016 | Michael McGirr

Dear Mother Cabrini, I am writing to you with an idea for a TV mini series. It is called Saint and the City and will be based around your life. 


Home Truths: Little Drama Boy

31 Oct 2016 | Kate Moriarty

It was going to be the best Christmas yet. For the first time, we were hosting Christmas. And Harry was old enough for the nativity play.


Unguarded moments: Acts of mercy

31 Oct 2016 | Ann Rennie

I was happy this year to tick the ‘Catholic’ box on the census to be counted as an Australian for whom faith matters.


Pope Francis and the challenge of being church today 

31 Oct 2016 | Bishop Vincent Long
