The New Cherryfield was where an enemy would drop his bomb on 8 December, if he wanted to cripple the Irish Jesuits. Fr Assistant Antoine Kerhuel was there with the Provincial John Dardis, half of his Consultors and a good gathering of the well and the wobbly, to offer the first Mass in the new chapel, with Brendan Comerford SJ on his first outing as Province MC. After John’s homily, Antoine blessed the gathering and the building, and managed to silence briefly an obstreperous alarm. Robust Jesuit singing was enhanced by a young orchestra from Clongowes.
BBC Radio Ulster held an interview with Fr. Federico Lombardi SJ, director of the Vatican Press Office, on Sunday 4 May. He talks about the Papal visit to the U.S., the perceived change in Pope Benedict’s image, and a possible Papal visit to Northern Ireland. It was broadcast during their Sunday Sequence programme, and can be heard on their playback facility here (starting at 53 mins). Fr Lombardi was also interviewed in Rome recently by BBC journalist Martin O’Brien. Fr Lombardi’s earlier interview about the Jesuit mission to be at the frontier of faith and culture can be seen here on H2O Catholic News.
