Fr Dan Carroll - Reflecting on the Salesian centenary in Ireland 1919 - 2019 (Programme excerpt)

On this weeks programme Fr Dan Carroll joins John and Shane to share about the Salesian order founded by St John Bosco which is celebrating its centenary in Ireland in 2019. The Salesians came to Ireland in 1919, on the invitation of Dr Louis Hallinan, the Bishop of Limerick. On the feast day of the Immaculate Conception, 8th December 1919, four Salesians, led by Fr Sutherland, arrived in Copsewood House, Pallaskenry, Co. Limerick. They opened an Agricultural College, the first foundation of the Salesians in Ireland. Fr Dan takes us through who Don Bosco was, and the history and current ministries of the Salesians in Ireland as they mark this important milestone in their history but also look to the future.

SacredSpace102fm - 27 October 2019 - November: Death, dying, grief and remembrance

On this weeks programme we reflect on November as the month of memory and how we remember and pray for our Holy Soul's - those of our families "who have gone before us marked with the sign of faith". Shane leads us in a reflection on facing death, grief and remembrance. Using scripture, poetry and music we pause in the rush of the life, to pause and think and remember about the one constant in life. 

We have our regular catch up with the Saints of the Week and a short reflection on this weeks Sunday gospel Luke 18:9-14
