28th September 2014 - VIDES - 26th Sunday in Ordinary time (Year A)

On this weeks programme John is joined by Sr Dympna Clancy from VIDES to talk about the work which is a group of volunteers who have given time abroad and who share their experience with those wishing to offer their services for limited periods working with the Salesian sisters in development projects abroad.

We have our regular Sunday gospel reflection as well as some other odds and ends. You can listen to the podcast of this weeks programme HERE.


VIDES (Voluntary International Development Education and Service)which is an international association supported by the Salesian Sisters which consists of groups of volunteers who give time abroad and who share their time and their gifts for limited periods working with the sisters in development projects abroad.
Vides Ireland continues to operate and invite volunteers to make contact if they are interested in giving time abroad. The Irish delegate is Sr. Dympna Clancy who can be contacted at dymclan@eircom.net or phone 086-3708652 or 061-348510

We hear from two returned Vides volunteers who have returned from Zambia and hear their story and experience of working in the City of Hope outside Lusake - Maire Ni Choistealbha and John Reidy.

Gospel - Matthew 21: 28-32

"What do you think? A man had two sons; and he went to the first and said, `Son, go and work in the vineyard today.' And he answered, `I will not'; but afterward he repented and went. And he went to the second and said the same; and he answered, `I go, sir,' but did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?" They said, "The first." Jesus said to them, "Truly, I say to you, the tax collectors and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you. For John came to you in the way of righteousness, and you did not believe him, but the tax collectors and the harlots believed him; and even when you saw it, you did not afterward repent and believe him."
