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.

The value of diversity

13 Aug 2017 | Madeleine Hamilton

The mood was subdued at the gates of our small Catholic primary school one afternoon in June this year. Ten per cent of our school’s students have an autism diagnosis, and for their parents who had read Pauline Hanson’s comments to the Senate that day, those familiar feelings — dismay at the ignorance and lack of empathy of some people, worry for the future, and defiant pride in their diverse children — had been activated yet again.

Catholic Teacher Blog: World Humanitarian Day - August 19

09 Aug 2017 | Fr Andrew Hamilton

World Humanitarian Day was instituted to remember people who have served in humanitarian missions and especially those who have lost their lives in the course of their service. It is an opportunity to call to mind the people who have gone before us, and especially to honour our martyrs. These include Christians who were killed because of their faith or because they recognised how precious each human being is regardless of race or religion, and dedicated their lives to serve them when they were under threat. They both inspire us and keep us honest.
