Series of Lenten Talk on the: Dominican Spirituality

For the readers in Ireland, this Tuesday we will start the series of Lenten Talk on the: Dominican Spirituality aimed at for Young Adults (20-40 yr.).

The idea is to inform young people who are interested in the specific aspects of the Dominican Spirituality, and to explain why it is so relevant to the world. After Easter there will be a follow up for people interested in the shape of a prayer meeting to continue to walk on the path of St. Dominic.

The dates and topics are:

23 February:
- St. Dominic a man for today - Fr. John Harris OP
2 March:
- “To praise. To Bless.” Dominican Prayer - Fr. John Walsh OP
9 March:
- Intelligent faith, our faith deserves to be understood - Fr. Ciaran Dougherty
16 March:
- Sacra Predicanda (Holy Preaching): giving to others the fruits of our contemplation - Br. Luuk Jansen OP
23 March: 
- Living Dominican Spirituality as a lay person in the modern world - Geraldine Flanagan (Lay Dominicans)

The talks will be held @ 8:00 pm in: 
St. Catherine’s Chapel (entrance on Upper Dorset Street)
St. Saviour’s Dominican Priory
9-11 Upper Dorset Street
Dublin 1

See also the Event on Facebook for more information for those of you who are signed up to that.

I wish you well Bro Luuk - but take care who you take guidance from! I was so seriously distressed at how the Dominican Retreat Centre in Cork was trivialising the Eucharist at their first Lenten Lectio Divina last Thursday - the only good thing I can say about it was there were no young people at it! So distressed that I went and sought out a priest at Pope's Quay the next morning to express my concern. There were two beautiful old priests blessing the faithful with relics of St Martin de Porres and one of them listened very attentively. Of course he explained Lectio Divina was a many centuries old tradition in the Church. But I raised grave objections to how the role of the priest is being sidelined by these lay-lead, half-baked novus ordo new-agey renditions of the Mass. Please remind them that having tea and biscuits in the middle and then going back and passing around the "bread and wine" is going against everything the Pope is trying to lead us back to in the Mass of the Ages.

I hope the Dominican Order will also remind Bishop McMahon of his duty towards the education of children in catholic schools!!

Thank God there are young men like you who are Witnessing to Christ:)
