The Messenger | August 2019

‘Please’, ‘Thank you’ and ‘I’m Sorry’ – three phrases we should all make greater use of in our everyday lives, says Pope Francis. Reflecting on the visit of the Holy Father to Ireland 12 months ago, Patricia Carroll considers how families, in our media-driven and materialistic world, can be the communities of love they are meant to be; Sr Stanislaus Kennedy urges us to learn to identify, and thereby eliminate, casual and everyday racism that exists in our society; Br Rickard Hendrick offers practical help on mindful meditation. Our RE:LINK supplement for teens and young readers, asks Are You #WOKE? – alert to injustice, especially racism. Plus lots more!
