Up and coming on Sacred Space 102fm

Just to give you our listeners (and readers) an idea what is coming up in the next few weeks on the show as we head into the end of the Autumn in October, the end of one liturgical year and the beginning of another.

One of the up coming highlights is our interview with the Josephite Sisters about the canonisation of Australia's first native saint, Blessed Mary MacKillop, which we blogged about previously. We hope to broadcast around the time of the canonisation in Rome on the 17th October 2010.

October is the month which is dedicated to the Rosary and also to the Missions with Mission Sunday taking place on 24th October 2010 with the theme this year of "Together in Mission". Sacred Space 102fm is going to have a number of interviews with various missionaries during the month, both lay and religious, with interviews with members of the Volunteer Missionary Movement, and VIDES Erin who give a lay perspective on the changed understanding of mission in this era of declining religious vocations. We will also have a discussion about mission and the Pope Benedict  XVI's message for Mission Sunday and a reminder about the Pontifical Missionary Societies in Ireland known as World Mission Ireland on Mission Sunday itself.

We also continue our series of interviews with priests and religious this month focusing on the Salesian Family with interviews with Fr Koenraad Van Gucht SDB, chaplain at University of Limerick and Sr Dympna Clancy FMA about her work in and around Limerick city and with VIDES Erin.

Coming up in the following weeks after that, we will have an interview with John Pridmore who speaks to us about his journey from gangland to promised land, secondary teacher and avid walker John McCrohan introduces us to the Camino de Santiago (The Way of St James) in northern Spain and we have up coming pieces about the mystic Julian of Norwich and an introduction for Irish listeners to the shrine of Our Lady of Walshingham in England.

Of course we will continue with the central focus of our programmes, our weekly reflection on the Sunday Gospel reading; as well as some inspirational music, chat, what’s on locally and not so locally including radio and tv, Sacred Space 102fm's recommended books from Irish publishers Veritas and Columba all presented by John Keily, our regular panelists and invited guests.

Looking forward to you joining us each Sunday morning between 10am and 11am on West Limerick 102fm and online.

Thanks for listening!

John, Lorraine and Shane
