In the continuation of this conversation which we will publish next Thursday, Fr Eugene begins to provide some of his insights into Aboriginal spirituality and the different ways in which the indigenous people relate to one another, to their land, and to the spiritual forces they perceive shape their life.

With the text by Fr Eugene Stockton accompanied by beautiful colour paintings by Terence O'Donnell, This Land, Our Mother explores the spiritual journey of the newcomers to the land of Australia. "We newcomers to this land, whether ourselves or our forebears, have physically crossed the sea, but many have not completed the crossing spiritually. We need to learn how Aborigines feel for the Land and so come home to Our Land, Our Mother".
