Choirs of angels

01 Feb 2017 | Kate Moriarty

Getting a gig at the parish for a new choir isn’t always easy. Sometimes you have to start as the undercard. 


Reviving an ancient tradition

01 Feb 2017 | Jemimah McMurray

When I think of millennials and church music, upbeat tunes and remixes come to mind. But for some young Australians, it is the most ancient traditions that breathe new life into the liturgy.


Finding the beat

01 Feb 2017 | Fatima Measham

There is a series of moments in a parent’s life when their child presents as a person in his or her own right. Like when their son or daughter learns to say ‘no’, or expresses a preference for something, or displays behaviour that has not been taught or modelled.

A letter to Bob Dylan

01 Feb 2017 | Michael McGirr

Looking back on our favourite music is a good way of remembering our lives.


The loss of a beloved one

01 Feb 2017 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

This Lent, Madonna magazine will take readers on a special journey through the Easter story, using a series of daily meditations on the Gospel story. Here is the first entry.


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.
