How should we live?

A recent article prompted me to think outside the usual way of seeing things in relation to lifestyle choices and care of our common home.  Among many valuable thought provoking points made in the piece, I have chosen to mention those which struck a particular chord in relation to continuing to walk lightly on the Earth. There is a  need to ...

Light in today’s wilderness..

Nano Nagle carried the light of her lantern, and the light of the Gospel into the darkness, desolation and discrimination endured by the people of God in Ireland under the Penal Laws. ‘Because the world still needs the Gospel and Nano’s lantern light, it is timely to remember Pope Francis’ challenge to go beyond the comfortable spaces, places and territories ...
