Dear friends,

With this email, I draw your attention once more to the Scripture Summer School. Our “target” audience is wide: anyone in ministry, people involved in Bible study and lectio, catechists and religion teachers, ministers of the word and so forth. All three presenters are experienced in dealing with different levels.

Scripture Summer School: The Fire of the Spirit

The Summer School takes place in Clonliffe College, at the end of June. Details: http://www.tarsus.ie/page22/. The flyer is enclosed with this email. If you have the chance, perhaps you could add the flyer to your web page and/or include details in the parish newsletter. The flyer could also be printed and displayed. Thanks in advance for any help.

Booking can be made directly with Mary Dent: mary.dent@dublindiocese.ie. The Summer School is filling up nicely but places are limited. If the cost is likely to prevent anyone from attending, then please get in touch with me and we can figure out something.

Readings

As always for the feasts, great care is taken with the choice of readings. The account of the Lord’s Supper from Paul is the earliest to come down to us. It could be that the particular context in Corinth—tensions and exclusions—might speak directly to our various contexts today.

Music

Perhaps some musical expression/meditation would be helpful for the feast. Duruflé’s setting of Ubi Caritas is unsurpassed and Byrd’s setting of the Ave Verum is surely one of very best ever devised.
