TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: Building peace and harmony

February 06, 2018 Teresa Brierley

Last week, I shared with you the first part of Pope Francis’ World Day of Peace message. In that part of his message he reflected upon our need to build a culture of peace. In the second part of this message he shares some of the reasons for so many refugees, making reference to the endless and horrifying sequence of wars, conflicts, genocides and ethnic cleansings.

TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: Connecting to the Christmas Story

December 19, 2017 Comments Teresa Brierley

I write this last message for the year on Gaudete Sunday – the Sunday of joy, rejoicing and eager expectation. This day will be completed by going to Lochinvar and being part of their traditional Carols in the Cloister. What a joyous way to continue preparing for the celebration of Christmas.

DR MICHAEL SLATTERY: Advent

December 12, 2017 Dr Michael Slattery

Advent is the season of waiting; waiting to commemorate Christ’s coming at Christmas. However, this year seems to have been a year of trying to “keep up” with little time to enjoy the pleasures of “waiting” and the dreaming and contemplation that are its luxuries.
