The Messenger | November 2019 ADD TO CART
€1.75 + p&p
Popular horticulturist and writer Helen Dillon makes a welcome return to the pages of Messenger, with her gardening column. This month she encourages us to ‘take stock’ of our garden and maybe introduce new elements for the coming year. With ongoing conflict in the Middle East, David Neuhaus SJ encourages the Christian voice to be one for justice, peace, equality, pardon and selfless love. Defending young people today with their commitment to climate change and social justice, Kevin Hargaden says this in no ‘snowflake generation’. Our RE:Link supplement looks at the 2019 Junior Certificate RE exam question on Images of God. Plus all our regular features such as cookery, crossword, prayer, young readers pages and much more.
