Interview with Paul Riordan about VIDES
On this weeks programme John has a chat with Paul Riordan.
Paul from Waterford worked for a few years in the Financial Services in Dublin before deciding to volunteer with Vides after chatting to a friend.
He tells us his story of helping others in the 'City of Hope' in Zambia and working in a resource centre in Lesotho. He shares how much he received from those with whom he shared his gifts with, as he said the world would be so much better to live in if we all shared what we have.
Interview with Paul Riordan excerpted from main programme HERE.

Gospel - John 21:1-19
When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my lambs.” A second time he said to him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Tend my sheep.” He said to him the third time, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter felt hurt because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” And he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep. Very truly, I tell you, when you were younger, you used to fasten your own belt and to go wherever you wished. But when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands, and someone else will fasten a belt around you and take you where you do not wish to go.” (He said this to indicate the kind of death by which he would glorify God.) After this he said to him, “Follow me.”
