Easter

Keep in Touch via the Media

Cardinal Nichols has recorded a special radio programme for the BBC on Easter Sunday. This will be broadcast at 0800 on all 39 BBC local radio stations. It will not be broadcast on BBC Radio 4, which will be broadcasting its usual Sunday Worship Service at that time. 

Easter Sunday

Additionally, the Cardinal will be giving the following interviews on Easter Sunday:

  • 0710 BBC Radio 4 Sunday Programme 
  • 0730 BBC Radio 2
  • 1300 BBC Radio 4 The World This Weekend

Additionally, the Daily Telegraph is publishing a reflection by the Cardinal on Good Friday. And the BBC will be covering Pope Francis’ Urbi et Orbi on Easter Sunday on its news bulletins.

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.
