Liturgy of the Word in the Lockdown
Fr Adrian Graffy has prepared two talks considering the first two readings from the Old Testament in the Liturgy of the Word at the Easter Vigil. The first talk, ‘Easter Genesis’, examines the first chapter of Genesis, and, with reference to Laudato Si of Pope Francis, points to the relevance of the text for today. The talk on ‘the Binding of Isaac’ in Genesis 22, the second reading, opens up reflections on a difficult text, which, as well as providing insights into the paschal mystery, also has something to offer for inter-faith relations. Please use and circulate as you see fit. Thank-you.
