TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: World harmony and peace

March 29, 2022 Teresa Brierley

On the Sunday of this fourth week of Lent, some of us would have heard the reading from Luke’s Gospel (15:1-3,11-32) about the Prodigal Son, while others may have listened to the reading from John’s Gospel for Year A, about the man born blind and whose sight Jesus restored.

TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: Communal hope

March 22, 2022 Teresa Brierley

It is hard to imagine that it is already the third week of Lent.

TUESDAYS WITH TERESA: Love your enemies

February 22, 2022 Teresa Brierley

Over the past couple of weeks, I have managed to catch some of the highlights of the Winter Olympics.
