Where is God in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic?
How can church communities survive and even prosper in times of restriction?
What will be the lasting effects on church life?
A new book from Maynooth and published by www.messenger.ie offers a variety of reflections from the perspectives of theology, scripture, philosophy, ethics, liturgy, pastoral, and canon law. It aims to assist those searching for spirituality during these difficult times.
One of the chapters has a connection to the centre, but all are readable and helpful as we reflect. This might form an interesting bookclub or shared reading group for some.
Contributors to the text include Tom Casey SJ, Anne Codd PBVM, Pádraig Corkery, Jeremy Corley, Philip Gonzales, Michael Hurley, Gaven Kerr, Nóirín Lynch, Aoife McGrath, Michael Mullaney, Neil Xavier O’Donoghue, Kevin O’Gorman SMA, Noel O’Sullivan, Jessie Rogers, Salvador Ryan, and Michael Shortall. The volume also includes an interview on the pandemic originally given to the Tablet by Pope Francis.
There will be a launch on May 19th organised by the Sacred Heart Messenger office.
The book is available for €9.95 here.
