If you were hiding from the sun last night, still recuperating from the weekend you may have come across a very interesting documentary on RTÉ.
The Judas Iscariot Lunch focused on thirteen former missionary priests from rural Ireland, revealing why they joined and left the ministry, while talking about intimacy, faith, religion and life before and after the Church.
If you didn’t, it’s well worth watching on the RTÉ Player, just take a look at this clip to see why:
