In the news
The media this week have covered at least three Jesuit items besides Tony O’Riordan’s advocacy of female offenders, detailed above. The Irish Catholic featured John Dardis’s tribute to the two Jesuits murdered in Moscow. The Enniscorthy Echo listened to Elizabeth Foley alerting congregations to the continuing vitality of the Sacred Heart Messenger – Elizabeth is on its marketing staff. Finally Belvedere’s commemoration of the 1918 Armistice was noticed not just by RTE’s coverage of the Mass on 9 November, but by radio host Pat Kenny, who welcomed Oliver Murphy and two of his Transition Year students to his radio programme on Armistice Day.
