The value of diversity

13 Aug 2017 | Madeleine Hamilton

The mood was subdued at the gates of our small Catholic primary school one afternoon in June this year. Ten per cent of our school’s students have an autism diagnosis, and for their parents who had read Pauline Hanson’s comments to the Senate that day, those familiar feelings — dismay at the ignorance and lack of empathy of some people, worry for the future, and defiant pride in their diverse children — had been activated yet again.

Our Catholic tradition is filled with devotions to Mary: the Miraculous Medal, Our Lady of the Rosary, Mary Helper of Christians, Our Lady of Lourdes, etc. We could go on. But Australian Catholics magazine thought we’d explore some lesser known Marian devotions that we don’t hear as much about.


A place of welcome and peace

23 May 2017 | Catherine Marshall

The healing has begun for a group of refugee children in a school in Western Sydney.


A leading light

23 May 2017 | Michael McVeigh

If the Catholic Church is to address issues that led to the abuse crisis, it will need to keep listening to people like Kathleen McCormack. The member of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors says education is vital in building global safer communities for children.
