Online exclusive: R U OK? Day

17 Aug 2016 | Fr Peter Hosking SJ


Thursday 8 September is R U OK? Day. The occasion reminds us that checking in with friends and family is one of the most important things we can do to help a person who may be dealing with mental health issues.

True love: A step-by-step guide

10 Mar 2016 | Michael McVeigh

God sees every person in the world as special. So for God the relationships we form with each other are equally precious. This means we need to approach the people we’re attracted to ways that respect both their dignity and their vulnerability. Because true love isn’t just the end goal of a romantic relationship – it’s the road we follow to get there.


Explorations: The business of relationships

10 Mar 2016 | Andrew Hamilton

Relationships are more than transactions where one thing is exchanged for another. Ideally, relationships are places where people are generous in what they give of themselves, and are also generous in what they forgive in others.

Listening with mercy 

10 Mar 2016 | Clare Deignan

It has been 150 years since Mary MacKillop founded the Sisters of St Joseph, committed to supporting families in need across Australia. Continuing in that tradition, MacKillop Family Services reaches out to families in a variety of ways, including out-of-home care, disability and education services, parenting, youth and substance abuse programs and integrated family support. But the workers there believe all the services, support and programs in the world can’t begin to help a family, if no one is willing to listen to their story.
