The island of Malta has in recent years come under scrutiny with regard to its position as a point of entry into Europe for asylum seekers and refugees attempting to flee Africa via the Mediterranean. Grant Tungay SJ, who spent the summer working there with the Jesuit Refugee Service, describes the plight of those who arrive in Malta under such circumstances, and the legal and political issues surrounding their situation.
Bishop Greg O'Kelly describes the fascinating life of Jesuit priest Donald MacKillop (the younger brother of Australia's first saint, Mary MacKillop), who died on 2 Feb 1925.
