Catholic Teacher blog: Saying sorry

14 May 2019 | Fr Andrew Hamilton

May 27 to 3 June is a week-long commemoration of significant events in the encounter between Indigenous people and later arrivals in Australia.


Parish Life blog: Day of Light

07 May 2019 | Fr Andrew Hamilton

At first sight, an international Day of Light (16 May) seems pretty soft. A nice thought, but it doesn’t seem to address any of our pressing concerns: the environment, world poverty, equality, gender equality, violence, and so on.


Explorations: Mental illness

07 May 2019 | Andrew Hamilton SJ

The Christian response to mental illness has its roots in Jesus’ healing ministry, and the belief that each person is made in the image of God. But stigma has always followed those who are mentally ill, and even today some of that still lingers.


Catholic Teacher blog: Days of diversity

06 May 2019 | Fr Andrew Hamilton

Three days have been set aside in May to celebrate diversity in various forms –  Day of Bees (21 May), Day of Cultural Diversity (22 May) and Day of Biological Diversity (23 May).


Thanking our mothers

30 Apr 2019 | Fr Andrew Hamilton

Mother's Day gives us the opportunity to thank our mothers and to reflect on the distinctive contribution that mothers make to society through their care of their children. 


Parish Life blog: May Day meanings

25 Apr 2019 | Andrew Hamilton SJ

The tension symbolised in May Day remains and indeed is sharpened by the major issue of our day: climate change.


Parish Life blog: Palm Sunday is a holy day

04 Apr 2019 | Fr Andrew Hamilton

Palm Sunday celebrations and marches remind us that the story of Jesus’ life, death and rising does not remain in the past but continues to be a compass bearing for our lives today.


Pray for doctors and their collaborators in war zones

27 Mar 2019 | Fr Andrew Hamilton

Pope Francis' prayer intention for April is for doctors and their humanitarian collaboraters in war zones, who risk their lives to save the lives of other.


Catholic Teacher blog: World Water Day

13 Mar 2019 | Fr Andrew Hamilton

To sustain our lives we need to respect the natural cycles: to protect the conditions under which rain will fall, rivers will flow and forests will grow from the source of streams to river mouth.


Catholic Teacher blog: Love counts no cost

05 Mar 2019 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

Love makes us able to celebrate the simplest and apparently most inconsequential aspects of our relationships. There is a synchronicity in Down Syndrome and World Poetry Days being on the same day as they are both about discovering depth and value in places we might see as ordinary.
