    Clare Deignan

    Dear Charlotte, When I was in Year Two, my teacher Mrs Newhard taught my class that we could meet with Jesus in our hearts at anytime, anywhere. My seven-year-old mind imagined meeting Jesus in a deep red room shaped as a heart.  In my mind, it had heavy curtains and a velvet couch, similar to…

    Michael McGirr

    An attentive moment

    Andrew Hamilton SJ
