Mercy notes: Mercy in Spirituality

26 Jan 2016 | Peter Fleming

The experience of God's mercy is a fundamental part of our Christian faith. It is the belief that Jesus Christ our judge is, before that, our merciful liberator. 


Mercy prayer: The Ignatian Reconciliation Examen

26 Jan 2016

An examen is a prayerful reflection on recent events in our life to find where God has been present to us, and to discern where God is leading us. 


Mercy and the saints: St Agnes and the spiritual mercy of God

26 Jan 2016 | Peter Fleming

Believing in the mercy of God doesn’t mean we continue to sin with the knowledge that God will forgive us for anything we do. It’s a belief that living in sin is simply not appealing because it separates us from God.

Wining and dining with Jesus

03 Nov 2015 | Peter Fleming

So many of our Gospel stories are centered around food. When Hollywood’s master of suspense, director Alfred Hitchcock, wanted to disorientate his friends by playing a practical joke on them, he would invite them to dinner, then serve a meal in which every item of food on their plates was blue. Later, when asked why he had dyed the food blue, he replied, 'Because blue is the one colour food is not.'


A letter to...Colonel Sanders

03 Nov 2015 | Michael McGirr

Dear Colonel Sanders,

I hope I am not being rude but I was surprised to read that you lived to 90 years of age. Even though you started KFC, you must have eaten at other places as well. It is curious that a person who was famous for his neat beard and immaculate white suit should choose to create an empire out of greasy chicken. You must have had a good dry-cleaner.
