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: 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.


PrayerBlog: My pet loves and hates

19 Apr 2017 | Peta Yowie

Whenever I hear the fireworks, I don’t think of celebration, for it sounds like someone’s bombing the hell out of us, and I think of all those in war torn countries. On New Year’s Eve it doesn’t sound like the end of the year, it sounds like World War 3.


PrayerBlog: Denial

12 Apr 2017 | Peter Evans

A poem reflecting on the three times Peter denies Jesus on Good Friday.


PrayerBlog: Lent and pilgrimage

23 Mar 2017 | Peter Hosking, SJ

Lent is a time of preparation. It should not be all gloomy but rather a time to reach out for God in new ways. In some ways it is a type of pilgrimage.


PrayerBlog: The Gift of Happiness

19 Mar 2017 | Andrew Hamilton

The International Day of Happiness is a quirky celebration.  Most international days celebrate groups of people – women, children, journalists, refugees etc. Or they point to quite specific qualities that we need in order to flourish:  mental and physical health, peace, asylum etc. They encourage us to be attentive to particular groups of people who are impeded from flourishing as human beings, and to act to ensure that society provides for their needs.


PrayerBlog: Be bold for change

06 Mar 2017 | Rachel McLoughlin IBVM

One of my heroes is at the heart of the Church; Mary Magdalene, recently justly reinstated as 'Apostle to the apostles'. On International Women's Day, we connect with her courageous witness and declaration ‘I have seen the Lord’. 


PrayerBlog: From Cape to Cake

01 Mar 2017 | Paul White

A reflection on the Aussie Camino in honour of St Mary MacKillop


PrayerBlog: Sundays in the City

22 Feb 2017 | Peta Yowie

I've been attending church a lot lately, but it's what happens after that has been changing me. In church I don't put much in the collection bowl, often just a gold coin, but when I walk the city streets later, that's when I give.
