On Thursday 8th of May our guest was Gerry O’Hanlon SJ. As a systematic theologian, Gerry shared with us some of his thoughts about the Church today, in Ireland and elsewhere.  His down to earth insights helped us to broaden our perspective on the Church and its mission in the world.  He set Pope Francis’s approach to reform in a clearer light.  We felt strengthened in our belief that the Spirit continues to be at work in the Church as a whole, and renewed in our desire to attend to the Spirit in our lives and concrete situations and missions.
