The Messenger | June 2019

The June issue of Messenger covers a range of topical subjects. Addressing the theme of solidarity with those who are most poor and neglected – the focus of the Pope’s intention for June – FR VINCENT SHERLOCK writes that we need to do better by those who have fallen on or were born into hard times; KEVIN HARGADEN distinguishes the migrant from the tourist or the pilgrim as being driven by necessity rather than seeking a destination or pursuing the journey; there is a thought-provoking article on the need for care within the Christian community for the separated and divorced; and to mark the month of the Sacred Heart, FR ALAN HILLIARD proffers a new view of the Heart of Christ today.

RE:LINK, our resource supplement for RE studies, covers religious groups in the time of Jesus Christ as an exam revision topic. The June Messenger also includes an article about Edel Quinn, continuing our series on women who have influenced Church and state life plus regular articles such as art, cookery, crossword, prayer, young readers pages and much more.
