What is war good for?

29 Jan 2015 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

Once people saw war as simply a fact of life, like hurricanes and earthquakes. They feared it and prayed to be delivered from it, but did not stop to think whether it was right and wrong. It was as natural for human beings to go to war as it was for lions to kill deer that crossed their path.

Responding to suicide as Catholics

12 Aug 2014 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

For most of us it mercifully remains a mystery why people can reach a point when they end their lives rather than continue living, writes Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ. We should talk about the life of people who have taken their lives, remember the gifts God gave them, feel sympathy for the suffering they had, celebrate their generous acts, and trust in our God who loves them even more than we do.

Respect

28 May 2014 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

Respect is an important but sometimes puzzling concept. Like a form of currency, we feel entitled to it for ourselves and others, but can earn or lose it by our actions. Yet even the most morally bankrupt of us have an innate dignity as human beings that can never be lost. Respect, then, is a starting point for all our relationships.


Laughter in heaven

03 Mar 2014 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

Does God laugh? Does God have a sense of humour? Can God take a joke? Strange questions, we might think, if we feel ourselves to be swimming in a sea of blue jokes and cynical comedians.


In the Church with Pope Francis

08 Jan 2014 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

Everyone knows that Pope Francis is different. When he was elected no one would have expected the new Pope to go back to the guest house with the other Cardinals in a bus or to celebrate Holy Thursday at the Juvenile Gaol, let alone wash the feet of young men and women, Muslim and Christian, with tattoos and without.
