Mercy notes: Mercy in Spirituality

26 Jan 2016 | Peter Fleming

The experience of God's mercy is a fundamental part of our Christian faith. It is the belief that Jesus Christ our judge is, before that, our merciful liberator. 


Mercy prayer: The Ignatian Reconciliation Examen

Mercy and the saints: St Agnes and the spiritual mercy of God

26 Jan 2016 | Peter Fleming

Believing in the mercy of God doesn’t mean we continue to sin with the knowledge that God will forgive us for anything we do. It’s a belief that living in sin is simply not appealing because it separates us from God. 


A short history of reconciliation

26 Jan 2016 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

While the forgiveness of sins was a part of the earliest Church, the sacrament of reconciliation took some time to develop. 


The divine guilt trip

16 Dec 2015 | Peter Day

To some of us it’s a time to pause, to reflect, to stand in awe. But to the vast majority of us it’s the silly season: a time of over-eating, drinking, buying, selling, worrying, partying, beaching, and pressured family gatherings. And don’t the silly season preachers love it; out of hibernation they come to herald their version of the good news - news that is best delivered away from pulpits and outside of Sundays. And what a persuasive, well-packaged homily it is: a seductive narrative that draws so many in: ‘CHRISTMAS IS A TIME FOR GIVING.’ 


Prayer blog: Making 'Xmas' more Christian

09 Dec 2015 |  Michael McVeigh

Celebrating Christmas in different parts of the world can be an interesting experience. One year, I was visiting my sister in Dubai. It was an amazing experience to visit bright shopping malls, covered in tinsel and other non-religious festive decorations, playing non-religious Christmas tunes, with not a Christian symbol in sight. The celebration was there, and there was a significant warmth to it. But it had become something very different in the majority Muslim culture - Xmas, or Christmas without Christ.
