Held within the octaveToday still stands within the Easter octave. The Church marks its most important feasts and seasons this way. I think it is also doing something more.There is something about the strange liturgical stretching of time, beyond the normal measuring and the pressure of the immediate, into the prolongation of the now: this moment, this place, which has no boundaries.Through we can count and distinguish the appearances, there is really only one resurrection moment. They are all...

Originally from Belfast I joined the Jesuits in England having attended Heythrop College as a lay man from 1976-79 when the college was located in Cavendish Square.  Religious vocations are a bit of a mystery but I was most certainly influenced by the Jesuits at Heythrop both by those who taught me and by the various Jesuit scholastics who were studying there in the mid to late 1970s. As a young Jesuit I was very interested in social and political issues and also in ecumenism. I completed...
