The walk starts at 4.15am at the Muintir na Tíre Hall in Murroe, goes past The Monument and the primary school, in the back gate of Glenstal, through the grounds to the village.

Before the walk starts, Glenstal School Choir will entertain the crowd, so if you are walking, plan to be there before 4am.

Refreshments will be provided at the hall directly after the walk.

We ask that participants car pool as much as possible.  Stewards will be directing traffic, so please follow their instructions.

The road from the Five Roads-Glenstal Abbey-Muintir na Tíre hall will be closed from 3-5am, except for local traffic.

The route from the Monument to the back gate of Glenstal will be very restricted from 4.15-5am, with diversions in place.

Thought for the Week – Country music is different

No comments
In the week that Big Tom died, I am reminded of an analysis of Country Music by Malcolm Gladwell – how it touches our emotions. If you look at the top 50 Rock music songs – they tend to be generic,  repetitive and often laced with cliches. Gladwell calls them, “hymns to extroversion”.
Country music is different – it deals with the dramas of human life – relationships in trouble – marriages breaking up, people falling apart, throwing themselves off bridges, drinking themselves to death. Gladwell gives the example of ‘Golden Ring’, a song by Tammy Wynette. It is  is about a marriage that is falling apart – the song follows their wedding ring from pawn shop to pawn shop.  “Cast aside like the love that’s dead and gone. By itself it’s just a cold metallic thing…etc
Gladwell suggests it is the details in Country Music – the ‘specificity of the moment’, that touches our hearts in a way that Rock music does not – the story is real, the details sharp and we are caught up in the emotion.
Another part of the story is that rock and roll musicians are from diverse backgrounds and almost have to be generic if they are to be understood. Country music on the other hand comes from a tight knit musical community and can be specific – you are singing to people who know your world, “you can bare your soul because and they will understand – you are  among your own”.  Big Tom was from this community and they loved him.

Thought for the Week – The era of the Holy Spirit

No comments
Growing up in Ireland in the 50’s and 60’s Jesus was the centre of our spirituality.  The Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost, as it was then, was not in the picture and was rightly known as the Holy Ghost – ‘the cinderella of theology’ – ‘the forgotten God’.
Yves Cougar, one of the best known theologians of the 20th century was a participant at Vatican 2.  Having listened to the Orthodox theologians he realised he knew nothing about the Holy Spirit and claimed that we needed Vatican 3 to restore the role of the Holy Spirit in the church. It didn’t happen. And today ironically the church suffers from a fundamental problem – a lack of faith in the reality of the Holy Spirit
The Orthodox claimed that the church had opted for what they called the three great white things  and ignored the role of the Holy Spirit – the Pope dressed in white, the white host, the pure, white virgin.
The emphasis on Jesus and the downplaying of the role of the Spirit was underpinned by a powerful, unchanging, institutional church, founded by Jesus Christ and upheld by his vicar the Pope.
There was little room here for anything as  unpredictable as the Holy Spirit blowing where it will.
We  need to recover a livelier doctrine of the Holy Spirit as a divine person.  Mark Wallace maintains, ” that the most adequate response to the current crisis lies in a recovery of the Holy Spirit as a natural living being who indwells and sustain all forms of life.”  It is  making a come back as a fluid and expansive presence in the world  – we are entering a new era the era of the Holy Spirit following the era of the Father (Judaism) and of the son (Christianity) .
