spirit_level_01_0.jpgGerry O’Hanlon, S.J., of the Jesuit Centre for Faith and Justice, appeared on Joe Duffy’s Spirit Level on RTE last Sunday morning, May 24th. Gerry was on a panel with Breda Power (Sunday Times columnist and broadcaster) and the Rev Stephen Neill, Church of Ireland Rector of Cloughjordan in Tipperary. The discussion, recorded the previous Sunday, focused on the inter-face between the recession and religion: was it true that more people were returning to Church as a result of the recession, and, if so, was this a good thing? Joe Duffy himself, foot encased in plaster due to a recent accident, was an urbane facilitator of the discussion, which, in the usual manner of these programmes, ranged far and wide.
