Please, sorry, thank you: International Day of Peace (21 September)

Wednesday 16 September 2020

Fr Andrew Hamilton SJ
 
The international day of peace is always timely. Unfortunately so. There is no end to wars and disputes between nations and between groups within them that take lives, devastate towns and impoverish nations. Peace is something that everyone wants, but most wars begin when one group or another tries to impose peace on its own terms, writes Andrew Hamilton. 

'Forgive. It is the way of God to our hearts' (Homily, 24th Sunday in OT)

Homily: 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Year A) | Like just about every married couple, my mum and dad had their moments. Usually it was a flare up triggered over something each had said or did without thought or intent. And just about always it was all over pretty quickly. Mum and dad seemed to have absorbed into their married life the Pauline dictum: “Do not let the sun set on your anger.” (Eph 4.26)
