‘Gaudete et Exultate’, ‘Rejoice and be Glad,’
Fr Jim Sheehy will hold 2 talks, on Pope Francis’ recent Exhortation: ‘Rejoice and be Glad’ at An Díseart on Thursday 17th and 24th of May, 8.00pm to 9.30pm. This call to holiness of life is very much a sharing, of Pope Francis’ own spiritual life, but also, of his reflections on the holiness of so many “ordinary” people who in their daily lives seek to live by the spirit of the Gospel, especially, as set down by Jesus in his ‘Sermon on the Mount’ (Luke 6: 20 – 23) and as witnessed to in his life. There will be an opportunity for discussion and each session will conclude with a short prayer service.
