16th September - Emmanuel Community - Emmanuel School of Mission

On this week's programme John is joined by members of the Emmanuel Community, Fr. Paul Glennon and Geraldine Creaton, who share their experiences of the Emmanuel School of Mission and the Emmanuel Community. We also have our regular saints of the week and Sunday gospel reflection.

Emmanuel Community - Emmanuel School of Mission

Fr Conleth Meehan (L) and Fr Paul Glennon (R) are Emmanual Community Priests for the Archdiocese of Dublin.
Back on 22nd June 2014 we had an interview with then deacon Paul Glennon, now Fr. Paul Glennon, who shared with us his on-going journey towards priesthood. Paul was then one of the 15 men ordained deacon in Maynooth on June 1st 2014 for the Archdiocese of Dublin. When Fr. Paul was ordained the Lord led him to become the chaplain to the Emmanuel School of Mission in New York. Geraldine and Fr. Paul both share their experiences of being members of the Emmanuel Community in Ireland (you can learn more about the community from our previous blog posts HERE) and their experience of Emmanuel Schools of Mission.

Gospel for the 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time - Mark 8:27-35

Jesus and his disciples left for the villages round Caesarea Philippi. On the way he put this question to his disciples, ‘Who do people say I am?’ And they told him. ‘John the Baptist,’ they said ‘others Elijah; others again, one of the prophets.’ ‘But you,’ he asked ‘who do you say I am?’ Peter spoke up and said to him, ‘You are the Christ.’ And he gave them strict orders not to tell anyone about him.
    And he began to teach them that the Son of Man was destined to suffer grievously, to be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and to be put to death, and after three days to rise again; and he said all this quite openly. Then, taking him aside, Peter started to remonstrate with him. But, turning and seeing his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said to him, ‘Get behind me, Satan! Because the way you think is not God’s way but man’s.’
    He called the people and his disciples to him and said, ‘If anyone wants to be a follower of mine, let him renounce himself and take up his cross and follow me. For anyone who wants to save his life will lose it; but anyone who loses his life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it.’
