The theme of the day is ‘Discovering the Face of Christ’ and Mgr Keith Barltrop, director of CASE will also be speaking. In the publicity for the event, he has given an introduction to this apostolate:
"It has often been said that the difficulty modern people have with faith is not so much about the arguments for or against it, but with the difficulty of imagining God's presence in our highly secularised world. The work of Radiant Light is a perfect answer to that problem. Elizabeth Wang's art helps us make "the longest journey", from head to heart, by picturing what this presence might be like in a variety of situations. Radiant Light thus continues the great tradition of the Church from earliest days in using contemporary art to instruct us about God's truth and attract us to his beauty, leading us on to heartfelt adoration and to awareness of his being with us and all people from moment to moment."The day will be held at the Harpenden Public Halls, Southdown Rd, Harpenden, Herts, AL5 1PD. This is 5 minutes walk from Harpenden station - trains from St Pancras.
Coffee are from 10.30am; the main events and lunch are in the Halls from 11.00am to 2:30pm; followed by Mass at 3pm in Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Rothamsted Ave, Harpenden. Entry is free and all are welcome. Take along a packed lunch or buy sandwiches nearby.
This autumn the Radiant Light website will be re-launched with over 600 free high-quality pictures available for use in schools, catechesis, and evangelisation.
