Lent – The Joyful Season

In his 2011 Message for Lent, Pope Benedict examines each of the Sunday Gospels for the Season: The First Sunday of the Lenten journey reveals our condition as human beings here on earth. The victorious battle against temptation, the starting point of Jesus’ mission, is an invitation to become aware of our own fragility in order to accept the Grace that frees from sin and infuses new strength in Christ – the way, the truth and the life (cf. Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults, n. 25). It is a powerful reminder that Christian faith implies, following the example of Jesus and in union with him, a battle “against the ruling forces who are masters of the darkness in this world” (Eph 6: 12), in which the devil is at work and never tires – even today – of tempting whoever wishes to draw close to the Lord: Christ emerges victorious to open also our hearts to hope and guide us in overcoming the seductions of evil.  – Message for Lent 2011

  • Lent is the traditional season for renewal and penance. In addition to the season of Lent, Irish Catholics are invited to observe each Friday of the whole year as days of penance.
  • The link between Friday and penance is extremely ancient and is even reflected in the old Irish word for ‘Friday’, An Aoine (the fast).

Lenten Worksheets for children and parents available at back of Church.

In Onóir Phádraig Naofa 2011

Céad míle fáilte do ghach duine atá ag teacht inár measc le haghaidh Lá ‘Le Phádraig.

Déantar Lá Fhéile Pádraig a cheiliúradh ar fud an domhain le mórshiúil agus taispeántais agus ainmnítear daoine agus áiteanna ina onóir. Insítear scéalta agus cantar amhráin faoi Phádraig, ach is annamh a thugann siad léargas dúinn ar an Duine féin.

 

Is sa dá dhoiciméad a scríobh sé féin, an “Confessio” agus an “Litir Chuig Coroticus” a fhaighimid léargas ar Phádraig mar fhear:

  • Le creideamh láidir;
  • A thug maithiúnas dá naimhde
  • A rinne nascadh idir chultúir.

 

In aois sé bliana déag bhí Pádraig ina sclábhaí ag aoireacht caorach ar thaobh sléibhe i bhfad óna chairde agus óna mhuintir. Bhí sé uaigneach, fuar, ocrach. Cad a dhéanfá dá mbeifeá sa riocht sin? Cad a rinne Pádraig? Deir sé féin gur chuir sé a mhuinín i nDia agus gur tháinig Dia i gcabhair air. Fuair sé misneach agus sólás agus bealach éalaithe sa deireadh.

 

Guímis ar son ógra an lae inniu atá uaigneach, buartha, éadóchasach.

A Dhia, cuir i gcuimhne dóibh go dtabharfaidh tusa misneach, dóchas agus neart dóibh má ghuíonn siad chugat, dála mar a rinne Pádraig agus é ina dhéagóir. A Thiarna, éist linn.

Fuair Pádraig droch-íde in Éirinn agus bhí áthas air nuair a d’éirigh leis éaló. Bhí an-áthas ar a mhuintir nuair a d’fhill sé abhaile agus d’impigh siad air gan imeacht uathu arís. Ach i mbrionglóid san oíche chuala sé muintir na hÉireann ag impí air filleadh ar ais, rud a rinne sé.

 

“D’fhill le soiscéal grá dúinn

Ainneoin blianta i ngéibheann.”

Dála mar a rinne Íosa, bhí Pádraig ábalta maithiúnas a thabhairt dá naimhde agus a shaol a chaitheamh ag freastal orthu. Chothaigh sé athmhuintearas agus síocháin.

A Dhia, cabhraigh linne agus le muintir an domhain uile maithiúnas a chleachtadh agus comhoibriú le chéile ar son na síochána.

Bhí Pádraig eolach ar an reiligiún Ceilteach a cleachtadh in Éirinn. Bhí meas aige ar na dea-thréithe a bain leis an reiligiún sin agus rinne sé nascadh idir nósanna a bhí acu agus an Chríostaíocht, m. sh. idir Tine na Bealtaine agus Tine na Cásca. Chuir Pádraig siombail na Croise, siombail na Críostaíochta leis an gciorcal, siombail na gréine, agus sin an bunús atá leis an gcros Cheilteach.

 

A Dhia, cabhraigh linn a bheith neamhchlaonta i leith daoine agus cultúr atá neamhchosúil lenár gcultúr féin. Taispeáin dúinn na tréithe agus na nósanna maithe a bhaineann leo, ionas go mbeimis ábalta maireachtáil le chéile go síochánta.

Tá rian na Naomh ar thír na hÉireann,

Rian geal Phádraig, soiscéal Dé.

Buíoch sinne, muintir Phádraig,

Leanaimis i gcónaí é.
