At a recent training session for priests in Rome, the Catholic church highlighted new areas of sin that should feature as part of confession along with the more traditional ideas of sloth, envy, pride etc. I wondered what young people would add to the list...or take away.

Partly in response to the last post and also after a conversation with another member of the schoolswork community earlier today, just wanted to flag up a couple of really great resources you may find useful in your work. Both will be added to the Resource Toolkit.

Beckham is set to get his 100th cap for England tomorrow night as he plays in the match against France. I may not know very much about sport but this seems pretty significant. The 32 year old father of 3 who now plays for Los Angeles Galaxy team is about to become only the fifth England player to ever win 100 caps. It's made me stop and think for a moment...
