The Leap of Faith Friday November 8th, 2019

On the Leap of Faith this week, Bishop Francis Duffy, Bishop of Ardagh and Clonmacnois talks about a new listening initiative in his dioceses. Noel Sweeney reports from Cork on how Mexicans living there celebrate the visitation of deceased loved ones on the Day of the Dead. The topic of the practice of yoga by Christians engaged many recently. We talk with Father Tom Ryan, a Paulist Priest from Boston and author of several books on the use of Yoga in Christian Spiritual practice and we take a moment to remember Gay Byrne and his television series The Meaning of Life.

About the Show

In a programme for people of all faiths and none, Michael talks with those whose life experiences cause them to call on their beliefs, as he seeks to discover what religion does for people - and occasionally to them.

With regular updates from across the world’s faiths and from those that hold them, this is a thought-provoking 30 minutes of radio.

The programme is produced by Sheila O'Callaghan, the commissioning editor of the series is Roger Childs.
