Prayer Blog: Dancing to God's Tune

11 Jun 2016 | Genevieve Nicoll

I am a huge fan of Flamenco. Wikipedia tells me that it is an art form native to the Spanish regions of Andalucia, Extramadura and Murcia. However, I first witnessed the drama and passion of Flamenco in Barcelona while backpacking around Europe. In an underground basement style theatre with chairs packed around a stage, I fell in love.

Prayer Blog: Modern day Jesus

27 May 2016 | Susannah Bishop

I enjoy musing on what a modern day Jesus would look like. Perhaps wearing skinny jeans and sporting a dreadlock or two. I can picture his Facebook profile: dutifully linked to Twitter and Instagram, posting regular snippets of modern day wisdom to his modern day followers, sending friend requests to Pete Fisher, Matty Taxton. 

PrayerBlog: Lentil Stew and the Bible

12 May 2016 | Beth Doherty

Bowls of lentil stew may not be what many consider the stereotyped Christian dish. There aren’t (as far as I’m aware) any Gospel passages where Jesus tucks into some lentil stew with his latest catch, although assumedly he did at some point. 

PrayerBlog: Steps in prayer

07 May 2016 | Peta Edmonds

Lately I pray from my Grandmother’s morning and evening prayer book. One of the lines from my favourite prayer is for a quiet mind and a clean heart. I kneel on a little green elephant cushion (elephants were my Grandma’s favourite animal) with a posture of a straight back and a bowed head, a bit like the posture you adopt in the writing process. First I pray from the heart and then I read a prayer from the book.

04 May 2016 | Brendan Nicholls

In 'Amoris Laetitia: Families – Love and Marriage', Liturgy Coordinator Brendan Nicholls breaks down Amoris Laetita to help readers digest the document and further illuminate its wisdom. 

PrayerBlog: When the Pope went to Lesbos

25 Apr 2016 | Andrew Hamilton

There is so much to like about Pope Francis’ journey to Lesbos. There is also so much for us as Australians to be humbled by.  He undertook his travel at a time when the people seeking protection on Lesbos began being put into enclosed camps, facing deportation to Turkey and perhaps return to the mortal danger from which they fled.

PrayerBlog: Four Insights from Amoris Laetitia

20 Apr 2016 | Michael McVeigh

Pope Francis’ latest exhortation has come out just in time for me, as I prepare to be married in June.

While many have focused on the aspects to do with the divorced and remarried, and couples in crisis, I’ve chosen to focus my reading more on what the Pope is saying in the exhortation about our relationship with God and with each other.

PrayerBlog: When 'Alleluia' Is Not Our Song

09 Apr 2016 | Susannah Bishop

Easter is that season where ‘Alleluias’ are plenty, where the dazzling figure of a levitating Christ, shows his open but bloodless wounds across churches. And why wouldn’t we celebrate? It is all so bright and joyous! Soon enough we will go back to the tried roads of ordinary time, when we go back to having God in heaven, death below and us wandering somewhere in the middle.

PrayerBlog: Do you love me?

28 Mar 2016 | Susie Hii

‘Do you love me?’  Jesus asked Peter three times, to Peter’s annoyance (John 21: 15- 17).  

PrayerBlog: Giving to the giver

26 Mar 2016 | Steph Unger

I'm well loving Easter this year... It's just really special this time around for some reason. As Lent drew to an end and I entered Holy Week, I was relishing this time of the year more than ever. I work as a youth minister in a parish, and I’m finding myself inspired and touched by the gift of young people, their insights, and our faith.
