Michael Paul Gallagher SJ returned from Italy to Ireland recently to spend some of the summer, and already the author of over ten books on spirituality, culture and fundamental theology is busy giving interviews on his latest book, Faith Maps: From Newman to Benedict XVI. On Sunday 27 June he gave a wide-ranging interview to William Crawley, on BBC Radio Ulster’s well known Sunday Sequence programme (15 mins in). On 1 September at 7.30pm he will give a public lecture in Gardiner Street Church entitled ‘Translating Newman for Today’. And on 18 September he will give a presentation in Milltown Park marking the 25th anniversary of the spiritual direction ministry, Anamcharadas. His talk, ‘Where are we now? What hope for faith?’, will offer a Powerpoint meditation with images on emerging languages for Christian faith, after a time of trouble and turmoil.
