On tonight's programme, giving up sweets for lent is one thing but just how far would you go to make a sacrifice. That's after the news.

On the Leap of Faith this week: we'll talk with English Anglican priest and broadcaster, Peter Owen-Jones, about the contrast in lenten activities between people today and many years ago.   

RTE Drama producer Kevin Reynolds joins us to talk about a documentary he has recorded with Fr Michael J Kelly. Fr Kelly is this month celebrated on a new Irish Stamp for his work of over 50 years in the fight against HIV/AIDS in his naturalised country of Zambia.

The World Innovation Summit for Health (WISH) is an initiative of the Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development. The most recent event was held in Rome last December and we spoke with the CEO of Wish Sultana Afdhal from her home in Doha as she explained how the event highlighted commonalities in Muslim and Christian approaches to palliative care.
