Saturday October 11th, All Hallows College, Dublin: Teresa of Avila - Doctor of the Soul

Dear All

Just a quick notification... especially to readers in Ireland... that I will be leading a day for the Irish New Monasticism Group at All Hallows, Dublin this Saturday. One of the group's convenor is Dr Bernadette Flanagan, a good friend and great organiser so I am sure the day will be a good launch for the Teresa Quincentenary events that start this week. Below is some information from their website, the link to which I attach below.
Also, many congratulations to my old friends Father Gerry W Hughes SJ and Dr Philip Newell for 2 excellent new books: 'A Cry of Wonder' (Gerry) and 'The Rebirthing of God' (Philip). I am just in the process of reviewing both and will put them up here shortly. Philip's book was launched in London yesterday at a great event at the Scottish Church on Pont St near Kensington. It was good to see Philip again and catch up with his news. I am hoping we can invite him to do some work with us in the near future... watch this space. I visited Gerry in his nursing home in Boscombe over the summer and it was good to see him full of the Spirit as he enters a new phase in his life.

Best wishes
