Simple Professions 2018

Earlier in the year the three brothers who completed last years noviciate made their First Profession into the Dominican Order.

The brothers who spend a year in our Noviciate in Cork have now made their First Profession to continue with the next step in their life as a Dominican. In our Studium, which is in St. Saviour’s priory in Dublin, they are now studying philosophy and theology for the next few years and, with the help of God, to subsequently be ordained priest.

Please have a look at the short video of this joyful event. The photos of this event can be found here.

 

Parish Missions

In the last few months the Irish Dominicans have done a few parish mission, notably in September a mission in the Parish of Keady, Derrynoose & Madden in Co. Armagh and in the Parish of St. Peter’s in Drogheda Co. Louth in November.

On these missions a number of Dominican brothers go to a parish to lead the mission. Usually the mission consist of two or three session per day which can either take the form of the celebration of Mass or an hour of prayer with for example exposition of the Blessed Sacrament. During the week confession are heard after each session and often a whole day is dedicated to confessions where a priest would be available from de morning till the evening. Where time permitting part of the missions is also to visit local school and those housebound.

The missions are always a great source of hope and energy, and it is a privilege to be able to minister on these missions! Please keep our missions and ministries in your prayers!

Doctrine and Life – November edition

Please find below some of the articles in the November 2018 edition of Doctrine & Life.

An End to Awkward Translations of the Liturgy?

Thomas R. Whelan surveys the battles surrounding the translation of the Mass into a style of English suitable for public proclamation. While commenting on Lost in Translation: The English Language and the Catholic Mass, by Gerald O’Collins with John Wilkins, he points to the ways by which, during previous papacies, Rome took control of the translation process. He recognises that Pope Francis is now providing for the exercise of authority in the matter where it belongs, with local conferences of bishops.

Did Jesus See His Followers as a Family?

Rebecca Roberts examines the passages in Mark where Jesus calls his followers away from their own families and defines his kin group with a new set of values.

Re-vitalizing Europe beyond Its Diamond Jubilee

Patrick H. Daly describes a dialogue encounter held in Rome at the end of 2017, to mark the sixtieth anniversary of the Treaty of Rome. He addresses problems now facing the European Union and points to ways in which the Church could put wind in the EU’s sails, recognising, with Pope Francis, that dialogue is a fundamental responsibility of politics.

Can We Have God without Heaven?

Martin Henry suggests that God honours us, as it were, by letting the apparent, humble ordinariness of our lives become a fundamental ingredient in the reality of the glory of heaven.

A New Dialogue between Church and State in Health Care?

David Begg continues his series on ‘Justice Questions’.

Impartiality without Gullibility

Archbishop Richard Clarke surveys themes in the writings of Elizabeth Bowen, especially her pointing to an innate and almost certainly unintended cruelty within innocence.

Oscar Romero: Long Walk to Sainthood

Ian Linden reflects on the canonization of Oscar Romero and on the actions both of his followers and of his detractors that delayed that proclamation.

A Month to Remember

John Scally is reminded in November of the death of his cousin Oliver, and of how suffering, particularly after the death of a loved one often appears an unanswerable conundrum for those who believe in the Christian God and it often rouses us to anger.

What Makes the Gospel of John Special?
