Wisdom for the Synodal Journey

Jessie Rogers reflects on wisdom as allowing a space for God’s newness, the paschal mystery being a reminder that God works in surprising ways. It calls us to embrace the wisdom of vulnerability.

The road is made by walking. Wisdom is found in responding to the Lord’s invitation to journey with the Spirit, with one another and ultimately with all of creation as we co-create a future which is God’s dream for the world.’

A Mystic for Moderns

Caryll Houselander and the Art of Suffering Well

Joshua P. Hochschild introduces the life and work of the author of The Reed of God. He says of the mid-twentieth-century British theological and spiritual writer that she became what she conceived Christ to be: ‘a poet of great compassion’.

Dominican Women of Hope

Elisabeth Healy, O.P., tells of how the Dominican Sisters of the Cabra Congregation discover reasons for hope as they look into the signs of the times. Recognising that change and adaptation are a necessary part of life, they foster unity and commit further to their preaching calling.

In Praise of Finland

David Begg analyses the achievements of Finland, recognised as the happiest country in the world, measured by such indicators as perceptions of corruption, generosity, freedom to make life choices, healthy life expectancy, social support and GDP per capita. His analysis is particularly relevant in view of Finland having endured two grinding wars with the Soviet Union and being again under threat because of the Russian invasion of neighbouring Ukraine.

The more relational approach found in quantum mechanics, in contemporary organic philosophy, and in general systems theory provides a rich new foundation for re-appraising our image of God.
