The Messenger | July 2019 ADD TO CART
€1.75 + p&p
The Pope’s intention for July is that justice may prevail in the world and that those that administer it do so with integrity. PETER MCVERY SJ challenges us all to think about what a just society would look like; KEVIN HARGADEN reflects on how we can build a pro-life society in an Ireland that has repealed the eighth amendment and CATHERINE DEVITT highlights the moral obligation we have to quickly move away from fossil fuels to a low carbon economy. RE:LINK, our resource supplement for young people looks at Religion and the Arts, focussing on some classical and modern interpretations of religious art. The July issue also includes our regular articles on art, cookery, crossword, prayer, young readers pages plus our series on women who have influenced Church and state life, which this month features Mary Aikenhead, founder of the Sisters of Charity.
