Prayer blog: Reconciliation balances guilt and hope

12 Feb 2017 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

Before the Apology to the Stolen Generations on 13 February 2008, many people canvassed the relative merits of symbolic reconciliation and practical reconciliation. Practical actions that will bear fruit demand listening with a humility born out of awareness of a destructive history, and taking time to listen and to build reconciliation, not simply to implement a policy. 


The key to tackling family violence

Tackling the issue of domestic violence means seriously addressing issues like porn and violence in our community.


Explorations: The music of faith

01 Feb 2017 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

Easter Reflection: Look for beating angel wings

01 Feb 2017 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

Angels today are usually seen as cuddly. They belong on wedding cakes, Christmas cards and play harps on clouds. At Jesus’ time they were serious. They were God’s messengers, bringing destruction to empires and striking fear in people.

The Church’s divine comedy

31 Oct 2016 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

Conversations about the Catholic Church are of many kinds: happy, sad, curious, tragic. They remind me of different TV shows we watch. 


Prayer blog: Becoming peacemakers

13 Oct 2016 | Andrew Hamilton, SJ

Everyone wants peace. But equally most people find conflict more interesting than peace.

 


Prayer blog: The importance of awareness days

05 Oct 2016 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

This week three apparently unrelated commemorative days follow one another: World Mental Health Day (10 Oct); World Homeless Day (10 Oct); International Day of the Girl Child (11 Oct). They are linked in telling us what is necessary if people are to find a home, are to enjoy mental health, and if women are to take their equal place in society. 


Explorations: Justice and compassion

31 May 2016 | Andrew Hamilton

Social justice is about more than offering charity. It’s asking questions about why people are in need in the first place.
