Catholic Teacher Blog: Risk & Success

11 Oct 2017 | Brendan Nicholls

'Often the difference between a successful person and a failure is not one’s better abilities or ideas, but the courage that one has to bet on his idea, to take a calculated risk, and to act.' – Maxwell Maltz

 


Catholic Teacher Blog: Social Justice Sunday - September 24

24 Sep 2017 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

If you want to stay happy and healthy you need to draw on the skills of cooks and dieticians. You also need them to stick to their own skills. Ask a dietician for a happy recipe and you may eat miserably. Ask a pastry cook to care for your diet and you may become a cardiac disaster.


Sneaky Jesus Song: You found me

13 Sep 2017 | Brendan Nicholls

A ‘Sneaky Jesus song’ may not be a religious tune, but when you listen to the lyrics it could be mistaken for one.


Catholic Teacher Blog: Suicide Prevention Day - September 10

09 Sep 2017 | Andrew Hamilton SJ

Suicide affects all groups in society. Teachers, doctors, miners, church ministers, and police have all grieved for colleagues who have taken their own lives, and have friends who have survived the suicide of family members. They can put faces to suicide.


Catholic Teacher Blog: Child protection, compliance and conversion

06 Sep 2017 | John Honner

Jesus is reported as saying 'unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven'. Did he mean what he said or was he being idealistic? Do his words mean anything for today? I think they do, especially for Christian ministries in the light of the work of the Royal Commission and its likely recommendations for ensuring the safety of children.

Catholic Teacher: Praying the scriptures with Mary MacKillop

09 Aug 2017 | Staff

These daily scripture reflections (originally for the first eight days of August), look at the life of Australia’s first saint through the lens of the daily Gospel stories. As you contemplate the daily Gospel reading, reflect on Mary’s story, and consider how your own faith journey can be enriched by her example.


Catholic Teacher Blog: World Humanitarian Day - August 19

09 Aug 2017 | Fr Andrew Hamilton

World Humanitarian Day was instituted to remember people who have served in humanitarian missions and especially those who have lost their lives in the course of their service. It is an opportunity to call to mind the people who have gone before us, and especially to honour our martyrs. These include Christians who were killed because of their faith or because they recognised how precious each human being is regardless of race or religion, and dedicated their lives to serve them when they were under threat. They both inspire us and keep us honest.


Catholic Teacher Blog: Indigenous Peoples of World Day - August 9

02 Aug 2017 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

United Nations Days are like Saints Days in the Catholic Calendars. They are reminders of the wider world beyond our own homes, cities and nations, often reminders of the violence inflicted on good people, and are also occasions for thanksgiving and celebration.


Catholic teacher blog: A plebiscite of one’s own

26 Jul 2017 | Alice Priest

The question of marriage and its meaning is presently astir in the public domain, writes Alice Priest. But my own interest has sprung, not from the public debate, but largely from the private chambers of my own heart.
