A matter of judgement
The inherent problem of capital punishment is that being a matter of life and death it demands that there be no error of judgement, but requires of each judge the omniscience, omnipresence and omnipotence of God.

Scholarship and activism meet in Frank Brennan SJ
His arguments defy categorisation as generally Left or Right and he crosses party politics in a refreshing way.  He is the quintessential reasonable man.

Armistice Day, on November 11,

reminds us of the wastefulness of war and the overwhelming joy of peace when arms are laid down.
No wonder that the peace-makers earn one of Jesus' Beatitudes.
Wars start with the rumblings of resentment, or unforgiven injuries in a person’s heart.
Let us bring to prayer the people who stir our displeasure and say to them:
Go in peace.  I have no quarrel with you.
