Father Paddy Rushe and Patrick Logue have started a new podcast series as an initiative for Lent 2022, with the aim of breaking open the Word of God.

This new project, by ‘Patrick & Patrick‘, is underpinned by the belief that, “lay Catholics, in particular, should become more immersed in the Word of God. The Holy Bible is God’s Word addressed to us here and now, and speaks to us here and now. Through it, God wants to develop a living relationship with His people.”

Speaking about the new podcast series, Father Paddy Rushe said, “I am especially proud that we have been able to create an episode in response to the War in Ukraine, as The Word of God should be able to speak to our everyday experience.  The prayer at the end of this episode is one for Peace, and it’s well worth a listen at this difficult and challenging time for the world”.

Father Paddy Rushe is Parish Priest of Monasterboice, Co Louth, in the Archdiocese of Armagh. Ordained in 1996, he has served as National Vocations Director, and as College Chaplain with the Dundalk Institute of Technology, in addition to his role as Assistant Pastor and currently, as Pastor of a parish. His close friend, Patrick Logue ,is a married lay-Catholic living in Co Louth, who studied Scripture to Masters level in Saint Patrick’s College, Maynooth, and has held various positions in pastoral leadership for the Archdiocese of Armagh, and the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference.

With multiple short episodes a week, the podcasts are designed to highlight some of the important themes in the Psalms and to give listeners the confidence to allow God’s Word touch their heart and influence their lives.

People can access the podcast on Spotify, Apple or Google Podcasts – or where ever they get their podcasts – by searching for ‘PatrickPatrickPodcasts’
