Prayer blog: Eradication of Poverty Day

15 Oct 2017 | Andy Hamilton SJ

We usually think of poverty as something that afflicts third world nations. But it is also present in Australia – shamefully so, in a nation of great wealth. We can see its effects in the lives of Indigenous Australians, with their poorer life expectancy income and educational opportunities, and greater likelihood of addiction, hospitalisation and jailing.


Prayer blog: Prayer and peace

24 Sep 2017 | Fr Ian Radvan, SJ

Those of us with ready access to various media are aware that we are being bombarded from every side with reports of violence: domestic violence, murders, robberies, suicide bombers, diplomatic spats, war, street protests, sexual abuse and even in nature.


Prayer blog: Pope Francis encourages devotion to the Sacred Heart

19 Sep 2017 | Philip Kosloski

On Saturday Pope Francis received a delegation from the Society of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart. He gave a short address and specifically mentioned their devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, encouraging them to 'return to your first and only love.'


Prayer blog: How about that weather?

11 Sep 2017 | Brendan Nicholls

It certainly has been a wet year. At Saint Ignatius College we have been flooded twice and survived a recent close call. We have spent many lunchtimes indoors as ‘the heavens opened’ during break times. Our football oval still has an average of two centimetres of water over the entire surface and the road near our school was 30cm under water for a second time last week.


PrayerBlog: Making meaning in our lives

16 Aug 2017 | Peter Hosking, SJ

Finding joy during the darker times will come easier if we practise finding meaning in the little things every day.


PrayerBlog: The Treasure Within

01 Aug 2017 | Susie Hii

A beggar had been sitting by the side of a road for over thirty years. One day a stranger walked by.


The Strength and Blessing of Indigenous Family Life

27 Jun 2017 | Australian Catholic Bishops

The following is an edited excerpt from the Pastoral Letter from the Australian Catholic Bishops for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Sunday 2017:

Just a few months ago an Aboriginal Elder in the Kimberley, well advanced in years and at that time in poor health, wrote a letter a few weeks before his death. It was written in copperplate style, in blue ink on thin note paper and was several pages long. His instructions were that the priest at his funeral might share the letter with the mourners in attendance at the church.


Faith Matters – Hilarious

25 Jun 2017 | Brendan Nicholls

We’ve just passed the shortest day of the year, the winter solstice and the end of exams. Teachers had one week to frantically mark all the papers and complete the lengthy process of report writing. As we all become a little run down, we will also inevitably see an increase in illness across the College as the winter cold and flu season begins. Just in time for the holidays!


PrayerBlog: Doubts and Delusions

14 Jun 2017 | Susie Hii

I once heard a psychiatrist say that people who believe in God have a delusion. I felt sorry for him that he does not have faith in God.


PrayerBlog: Joy in a World of Grey

27 Apr 2017 | Mia Nicholls

The world is full of bad news. Trump’s policies of hate; Brexit’s divisiveness in the UK, the reduction of the rights of vulnerable women in Russia; the continuing devastation in Syria; Australia’s current refugee policy and even the unwelcoming nature of some of our parishes, have made me shocked, angry and sad.
