€1.75 + p&p
In the March issue of Messenger CATHERINE DEVITT highlights the environment, one of the principal concerns of Pope Francis’ papacy as she alerts us to the chronic lack of clean water in many parts of the world; DAVID STEWART SJ writes about Rutilio Grande SJ, and how his courage and vision, as well as his violent murder, inspired his confrère and friend, St Oscar Romero; PADDY MONAGHAN addresses the challenges of Catholic evangelisation among Irish youth in his article on Alpha Ireland. And as we approach Lent, RONAN BARRY shares a number of resources for the Lenten journey towards Easter plus our RE:LINK supplement suggests sharing the precious commodity of our time with others as a form of Lenten preparation. March Messenger continues our series on women who have influenced Church and state life with an article on Venerable Nano Nagle, foundress of the Presentation Sisters and includes regular articles such as art, cookery, crossword, prayer, young readers pages and much more.
