Indigenous missions

17 Dec 2012 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

Indigenous missionsThere are many ways of seeing missions. Catholics describe the heroism of men and women who leave their own lands to bring the gift of faith to people who have never heard of Christ.

Faith as a journey

23 Sep 2012 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

Faith as a journeyPilgrimages have been a central part of the Catholic faith since its earliest days. The physical journeys we take in the name of Christ mirror and enhance the spiritual journeys we take as we seek to follow His example.

Catholics and the environment

01 Aug 2012 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

Catholics and the environmentDiscussion of the environment can be a turn off. The topic is vast and complicated, and it raises high passions.

The Church and education

30 Apr 2012 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

The Church and educationCatholic education has changed significantly since Jesus' followers set out into the world to teach people about faith. As it continues to evolve, diversify and respond to the times, its deeper aspects remain.

A vocation to god

04 Mar 2012 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

A vocation to godWhen Jesus called people to follow him, they were asked to give up the worldly things they prized in order to give themselves fully to something far greater. Since that time, religious vocations have been about providing an example for society of what is truly meaningful in our lives.

The importance of being good

12 Dec 2011 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

The importance of being good Christianity is essentially a path to goodness, learning to express God's love for us in our actions towards others. For saints like Mary MacKillop, goodness was such an ingrained habit that it seemed to come naturally in their words and deeds.

Our response to refugees

09 Oct 2011 | Fr Andrew Hamilton sj

Our response to refugeesHow we respond to refugees is determined by our response to all strangers who come to us in need. As Christians, our response is guided by Biblical stories such as the exile of the Jewish people and their gratitude to God for finding them a home. In the same way, we are called to share what we have with others, and to be grateful for the gifts that they share with us.

A faith that does justice

03 Aug 2011 | Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ

A faith that does justiceSocial justice is at the heart of our faith. If God loves each person equally, then He must also want each of us to have an equal opportunity to flourish in this world. This can only happen if we place the needs of others, particularly those on the margins, at the centre of our concern.

Religion’s relationship with science

09 May 2011 | Fr Andrew Hamilton sj

Religion's relationship with scienceWhen we think of science and religion we often think of conflict. We think of people like Christopher Hitchens and Richard Dawkins claiming that science has disproved the claims of religion, and of Christians who argue against them. We also think of our own acquaintances who believe that modern science has made religion obsolete.
