Africa, St Patrick's Missions 
September/October 2023, Vol. 88 No. 6

Our September/October issue is out now. In this issue we start by celebrating the Season of Creation (September 1st to October 4th). This year’s theme is “Let Justice and Peace Flow”. On page two we feature “A Four Director Prayer” that was composed for this year’s Season. We hope it will speak to you wherever you are. In this issue Fr Emmanuel Obi fulfils a very special wish for a friend from South Sudan, and Amanda Dutra de Rezende introduces us to Ramilda (featured on the cover) from Tamaniquá, Amazonas, Brazil, a lay woman chosen by Bishop Altevir to be the official church administrator for her area. Ramilda travels by boat to visit families and administer the sacraments. Eddie Longworth looks at the relationship between sport and politics; we celebrate Society jubilees and ordinations; John Cassidy continues his Seven Popes; and Fergal Browne gives us a very interesting insight into a local chapel in Ballingarry, Co Cork. We have all our regular contributors to welcome us into the autumn. We hope you enjoy our September/October issue.
