13th January 2018 - SS102fm 2018 Year in Review

On this weeks programme the SS102fm undertakes our annual review of the year with a trip through what was a rather challenging 2018 in ecclesial terms. We are introduced to our blog patron saint of the year for 2019. We have our regular reflection on the Sunday gospel of feast of the Baptism of the Lord as well as some small notices and other liturgical odds and ends.  

You can listen to this weeks full programme podcast HERE.

Patron Saints for 2019

As per SS102fm tradition we were given our 2019 patron saints via the saintsnamegenerator; and the saints allocated to us this year are:

  • John - St Matthew the Apostle
  • Shane - Archangel Raphael
  • Lorraine - St Mary Magdalene
  • Anne - St Jane of Valois

And our blog patron saint for 2019 is St Albert the Great - Albertus Magnus O.P. (c. 1193 – November 15, 1280), also known as Saint Albert the Great and Albert of Cologne, was a German Catholic Dominican friar and bishop. Later canonised as a Catholic saint, he was known during his lifetime as Doctor universalis and Doctor expertus and, late in his life, the sobriquet Magnus was appended to his name. The Catholic Church distinguishes him as one of the 36 Doctors of the Church.

2018 Year in Review

On SS102fm over the last few years about mid-January has had the custom of taking a look back at the year just gone from a faith perspective looking at things globally, papal related, nationally in Ireland and locally to Limerick diocese. We also do a bit of crystal ball gazing to see what might be the things to watch out for in 2019.

You can listen to the year in review discussion excerpted from the main programme podcast HERE.

Gospel - Luke 3:15-16, 21-22

The people were filled with expectation,and all were asking in their heartswhether John might be the Christ.John answered them all, saying, "I am baptizing you with water,but one mightier than I is coming.I am not worthy to loosen the thongs of his sandals.He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire."
After all the people had been baptized
and Jesus also had been baptized and was praying,
heaven was opened and the Holy Spirit descended upon him
in bodily form like a dove.
And a voice came from heaven,
"You are my beloved Son;
with you I am well pleased."
