C&SI - From Croagh to Syria and back again: a vocation story - 2 Oct 2022 (S02E46)

Here on C&SI we have had an intermittent series of interviews where men and women in religious life have shared their stories with us. On this weeks podcast we are delighted to welcome back to Limerick Fr Seamus Madigan who has completed a period of service as a chaplain in the Irish Defence Forces and who now returns to take up a parish appointment in Limerick diocese. Seamus shares with us his journey in religious life with the Salesians, the move to being a diocesan priest and then the rather unusual role of serving as a chaplain to the defence forces in the midst of the national decade of centenaries including the commemoration of the 1916 Rising in 2016. He also shares with us about his recent sabbatical and the next steps as he takes up his new role.

In addition to our chat with Fr Seamus, we also have our regular saints of the week, reflections and lectio divina on the Sunday gospel.

C&SI - Exploring the Season of Creation - 25 Sept 2022 (S02E45b) (Podcast Excerpt)

As we journey through the Season of Creation 2022, John and Shane are joined on this weeks podcast by Sr Betty Baker to speak and reflect on this years focus and theme of  “Listen to the Voice of Creation”. “I have heard their cry…I know their sufferings…Come, now! I will send you…I will be with you” (Ex 3: 1-12). The burning bush is the Symbol for the Season of Creation 2022.

Season of Creation 2022 - Listen to the Voice of Creation
The Season of Creation is marked throughout the Christian world from 1 September to 4 October (Feast of Saint Francis of Assisi) and celebrates the joy of creation as well as encouraging awareness-raising initiatives to protect the natural environment.

The theme for the Season of Creation 2022 is “Listen to the Voice of Creation”. “I have heard their cry…I know their sufferings…Come, now! I will send you…I will be with you” (Ex 3: 1-12). The burning bush is the Symbol for the Season of Creation 2022. Today, the prevalence of unnatural fires are a sign of the devastating effects that climate change has on the most vulnerable of our planet. Creation cries out as forests crackle, animals flee, and people are forced to migrate due to the fires of injustice. On the contrary, the fire that called to Moses as he tended the flock on Mt. Horeb did not consume or destroy the bush. This flame of the Spirit revealed God’s presence. This holy fire affirmed that God heard the cries of all who suffered and promised to be with us as we followed in faith to our deliverance from injustice.

In this Season of Creation, this symbol of God’s Spirit calls us to listen to the voice of creation, to the voices of those who suffer the impacts of climate change, to the voices of those who hold generational wisdom about how to live gratefully within the limits of the land. These are voices of the Earth. The global Christian family is called to awaken to the urgent need to heal our relationships with creation and with each other and to encourage our parish communities to do the same, “for we know that things can change!” (Laudato Si’, 13).
