The Church in the Ploughing Fields
Bishop Denis Nulty, who comes from a farming background, has been at the 2015 ploughing championship. He has a great love of the land and where Pope Francis talks of the need to get out into the battlefields he talks about needing to get out into the ploughing fields. The theme for the year is to “love tenderly and walk humbly with our God” and they shared their tent with Accord, IMU and Vocations Ireland. Bishop Nulty also came up with a plan to introduce a poem for the ploughing, to find people’s favourite farming poem. He explains more to Miriam Gormally.
