Even Hurricane Katrina Couldn't Keep this Nun Out of New Orleans
Last edited 27th August 2015

For Sister Greta Jupiter, SSF, it was an odd sensation driving through New Orleans East in the months after Hurricane Katrina. Her neighborhood was quiet. The power, out. Gone was the familiar white noise of birds chirping. There was no traffic, save for military and first responders.

Last edited 10th August 2015

Takashi Nagai was a soldier, doctor, university lecturer, husband, father, and a Nagasaki atomic bomb survivor who may become a saint in the Catholic Church. Although almost unknown outside Japan, he was a major figure in post-War Japan. His only biography in English, A Song for Nagasaki, was written in 1988 by an Australian priest who worked for many years in Japan. It is an extraordinary story of a man of immense spiritual and intellectual depth.

How Can 'Non Indigenous' Australians Engage in Indigenous Justice? It’s Pretty Black and White
Last edited 8th July 2015

My year four teacher sold me a lie, and yours probably did too… It wasn’t that she was a bad person; after all, she was just passing on to me what had been passed on to her. To a room full of impressionable young minds, her words hit my ears with unsettling confidence. ‘Australia was discovered by Captain Cook, and on 26th January 1788 Australia was established as a nation.’ There was, of course, a problem with this story. At best, it was a thin story, a partisan and discriminatory representation of our history, at worst it was intentional deception. A lie. And a lie that changed everything.
