The Liturgy in Ireland: Easter Sunday in Dublin (and Fota IV)

John Sonnen has been spending Holy Week in one of my favourite cities, Dublin, Ireland, and he brings us some photos of Easter Sunday at St. Kevin's there.

[For those who would like to submit your own Easter Sunday photos for publication consideration, the next few days will be the time do it.]

Speaking of Ireland, this is a good time to raise again the Fota Liturgical Conference to be held in Cork in July:

“St. Colman’s Society for Catholic Liturgy is pleased to announce that the Fourth Fota International Liturgy Conference (Fota IV) will take place in Cork, Ireland, 9th ,10th and 11th July 2011.

The Conference will explore the topic: Benedict XVI and the Roman Missal. Drawing on a panel of expert speakers from the U.S.A., Germany, Italy, Great Britain, and Ireland, it will examine the approach of Benedict XVI/Joseph Ratzinger to understanding and appreciating the Roman Missal as one of the central texts of Catholic Worship.

The Conference will be opened by His Eminence Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke who will also give the key note address.

In preparation for the publication of the English translation of the third edition of the Missale Romanum, the Fota IV Conference will host a special one day seminar in Cork, Ireland, on 29 July 2011 to present the new English translation of the Roman Missal.

The seminar will be chaired by His Eminence George Cardinal Pell, Archbishop of Sydney, President of the Vox Clara Committee”.
