‘Later I realised that this was the most powerful moment of the journey for me. Here I was, a stranger who had wandered in from the Tibetan plateau in the need of shelter and comfort, and I was offered both in abundance. We had no word in common but without the benefit of language it is the non-verbals that click into place: body language, gesture, mime, eye contact, facial expressions, basic intuition. The condition of being human is universal I discovered and the underlying impulse to reach out and connect transcends the barriers of race, language and geographical location.’
A beautifully written collection of essays on incredible journeys across the seven continents by writer and broadcaster Marguerite Mac Curtin.

In Seven Voices of Joy we hear from seven characters from the Advent story.
Each voice is unique. Each voice has a different tempo, feeling and resonance. Each contains comfort, inspiration and, above all, hope. This sensory prayer book is for individual or group use and combines a mixture of Franciscan and Augustinian spirituality. The reader is invited to gaze on an image, read the reflection (in English or in Irish) and listen to how their soul responds.

In the aftermath of 9/11, which highlighted the dark alliance between religion and violence, there was a new realisation among policymakers around the world of the significance of religion as a factor in global affairs. We are faced with almost daily evidence in newspapers and on radio, television and social media platforms of the capacity of religion to do much good but also to do great harm. The phrase ‘the paradox of religions’ has been used to describe this dual effect. The Politics of God: The Rise and Rise of Political Religion examines the rise of political religion and its global impact, particularly in light of the Russo-Ukrainian War that has caused Europe’s largest refugee crisis since WWII. More so than at any time before in history, it is now recognised that religions, in their beliefs, doctrines and practices, are involved in much that is divisive and harmful. But at the same time they are involved in much that is extremely good.

‘The nativity scene is akin to a living Gospel rising up from the pages of sacred Scripture. As we contemplate the Christmas story, we are invited to set out on a spiritual journey, drawn by the humility of the God who became man in order to encounter every man and woman.’ (Pope Francis, Admirabile Signum, 1). In this typically heart-warming apostolic letter, Pope Francis explores the meaning of the nativity scene, its origins, and the untold importance it has for society today. With references to the first nativity scene, attributed to St Francis of Assisi in Greccio, Italy, Pope Francis explores the history of the crib and its profound and everlasting symbolism. He also explores its implication for Christians today, at a time when, despite great wealth and prosperity, so many in society are told that there is ‘no room at the inn’.
