Fr Richard Keane - A Vocational Journey
SS102fm has asked various priests and members of religious life to share their vocational stories over the years and this week we were delighted to welcome Fr Richard Keane (curate in Newcastle West) to the "Come & See" Studio in Ardagh to share his vocational journey with us.
Fr Richard originally from Limerick city and ordained for the diocese in 2002 is undertaking a new ministry for the diocese in the next few weeks as he undertakes studies in canon law for the diocese at the University of St Paul in Canada.
You can listen to the interview with Fr Richard excerpted from the main programme HERE.
Gospel - John 6: 60 - 69
When many of his disciples heard it, they said, ‘This teaching is difficult; who can accept it?’ But Jesus, being aware that his disciples were complaining about it, said to them, ‘Does this offend you? Then what if you were to see the Son of Man ascending to where he was before? It is the spirit that gives life; the flesh is useless. The words that I have spoken to you are spirit and life. But among you there are some who do not believe.’ For Jesus knew from the first who were the ones that did not believe, and who was the one that would betray him. And he said, ‘For this reason I have told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted by the Father.’ Because of this many of his disciples turned back and no longer went about with him. So Jesus asked the twelve, ‘Do you also wish to go away?’
Simon Peter answered him, ‘Lord, to whom can we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and know that you are the Holy One of God.’*
