A Meditation for Those Who Feel Alone and Discouraged
Last edited 30th July 2015

Every now and again in times like these, times of cultural confusion, times when so many Catholics have fallen away from the practice of the faith or are so breezily dissenting, think of the prophet Elijah at his lowest moment. He was in a cave, anxious and fretting, so depressed he could barely eat.

Life Matters: God’s Final Word on the Subject
Last edited 20th July 2015

There are few evils in this world that tear me apart like abortion does. I’ve prayed with women who were contemplating it; some didn’t do it, others did. I’ve held crying women in my arms for hours, days, and even years after they have had an abortion. There are no words I can find to describe the pain that an abortion causes – to the mother, the father, the baby, or the Lord.

Wrestling Truth
Last edited 16th July 2015

I’m on a journey. Sometimes the road is easy. Sometimes it’s not. There are days I’m strolling in the sunshine and there are days I’m crawling through a thunderstorm. When it’s good, it’s really good. I have joyful companions who know and accept me. When it’s bad, I feel alone and isolated and I’m certain the world hates me.

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.
