Pope Francis TED Talk - Why The Only Future Worth Building Includes Everyone...
Pope Francis has recorded his own TED Talk which you can view here. Perhaps having watched for yourself, you may see relevance to view this - or a part thereof - with a group of students in the classroom also?
Brendan O'Regan has many suggestions for the month ahead; see his recent bulletin here and the full FaithArts Website for further inspiration.
May, the Month of Mary
As we begin the month, where we honour Mary in a special way, take a look at this article fromThinking Faith: A Timeless Magnificat. Gerard Manley Hopkin's poem referenced in the article; The May Magnificat, is shared here by Brother Richard Hendrick on Instagram

Kind regards,
