Explorations: Keeping faith real

22 Mar 2015 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

When we think of faith we often imagine people praying alone, thinking religious thoughts, and believing religious things. We imagine faith being in the mind and heart, not in doing things. Yet faith is as much about what we do as what we believe. The sacraments help keep our faith grounded in community and in action.

Our friends over at America magazine in the United States had a visit from comedian Stephen Colbert at the start of Lent. Best known for his comedy/news program the Colbert Report, Colbert is also a committed Catholic. America magazine editor Fr James Martin SJ was often a guest on Colbert's show, and took the opportunity of the visit to turn the tables on the comedian - interviewing him about his faith. 


Prayer blog: I love the Church, especially in Lent

25 Feb 2015 | Ramesh Richards SJ

Ash Wednesday’s second reading from Paul to the Corinthians invites us to be true ambassadors of Christ and the appeal is to be reconciled back to God. If you have stuffed up, acknowledge it, own it, and as Taylor Swift says, 'shake it off' through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
