A group of clergy from the Church of Ireland Dioceses of Cork, Cloyne and Ross pooled their efforts, and recorded the Passion Gospel – the traditional reading of the entire story of the final days and hours in the life of Jesus Christ. The many dozens of clips were recorded in each person’s own place of ministry and sent to the Bishop who pieced them together.
The narrator was Canon Dr Daniel Nuzum reading from the Chapel of Christ the Healer on the main corridor of Cork University Hospital where he is Chaplain. Bishop Colton said:
I wanted to make a special connection with the hospital as it is emblematic of our overriding concerns at the present time, as we pray for all our frontline workers in Ireland, and also, in this much used Chapel of Christ the Healer we find a place that speaks to us of God’s presence with us: God’s love, compassion and healing.
These clergy of Cork, Cloyne and Ross are all pleased to share it with you; and to invite you to hear again this Holy Week the Passion of our Lord Jesus Christ according to Saint Matthew.
