As the countdown to Christmas continues we have two things on our mind, money and evil.
We meet author Martina Lehane Sheehan who in a response to the commercial activity of Black Friday has organised Bright Friday. Monks, musicians, poets and mindfulness practitioners will hold a free day of calm and reflection in opposition to the increasing dominance of ‘Black Friday’, the annual shopping frenzy which often sees customers queuing and physically competing to get bargain deals.
Social campaigner and mindfulness practitioner Sr Stan Kennedy will lead the line-up which includes Mark Patrick Hederman OSB, John Waters and Martina Lehane Sheehan.
