    A balancing act

    Chris Gleeson SJ. 10 March 2017

    I pen this editorial on a superb day at Sevenhill where, as one retreatant has quipped, the Australian Jesuits’ DNA resides. As so often happens, I am writing with the light of some inspiration I have just received on the Combined Jesuit School Councils’ Retreat

    Don't judge

    Susie Hii. 10 March 2017

    We are advised when doing the awareness Examen, coined by St Ignatius of Loyola, to practise being non-judgmental. Instead of judging events as good and bad, some people categorise them as ‘highlights’ and ‘lowlights’.

    The healing touch

    Peta Edmonds. 10 March 2017

    Walking into St Ignatius Church today, I feel God. I breathe in and smell the polished wood. It makes me think of an ark that has never sailed

    Education: Giving Wings To the Soul

    Chris Gleeson SJ. 10 March 2017

    In early July this year, I listened to some moving stories about education. We were hosting some guests from Jesuit Commons: Higher Education at the Margins – a consortium of Jesuit universities and colleges established in 2006 – which now offers higher education to camp-based refugees in ten different sites around the worl

    The Greatest Gift of All

    Staff. 10 March 2017

    This time of the year can often seem to revolve around gifts, and by gifts I mean presents, gloriously wrapped in boxes with expensive cards and ribbon. Yet the paradox is that as Christians, we celebrate the birth of one who was laid in a manger, whose parents had to travel by donkey and had no place to stay once they arrived in Bethlehem.

    Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network

    David Braithwaite SJ. 09 March 2017

    Homo homini lupus – ‘man is a wolf unto man’ – is one of those lapidary phrases that has been passed down to us in a most interesting lineage. Originating with Plautus, the Roman poet, and approvingly cited by Thomas Hobbes in Leviathan, and later by his spiritual heir Sigmund Freud in his Civilisation and its Discontents, it is a phrase that captures a deeply pessimistic, and sadly, popular view of human nature

    God in the Top End

    Peta Edmonds. 09 March 2017

    When I first arrived in Darwin, my family took me for fish ‘n’ chips at Cullen Bay. We sat in the grass before the beach and ate golden snapper. As I watched the sun go down, the sky went from blue to pink to a dark purple: God the artist at his canvas
