Kerry Diocesan Turkana Project
Having heard from Sr. Margaret the difficulties the children are currently experiencing there, our Mission Committee decided to ask the Confirmation children in Kerry to help the children of Turkana.
All candidates are invited to make a contribution to the Missionary work in Turkana. Sr. Margaret Twomey has been chosen to be the recipient of the funds this year. Turkana is a desert country. They experience terrible drought. The people are mostly nomads, where the men take their sheep, goats, cows and camels to pasture where ever they can find grass and water. The women and children are left at home with little food or water. The children are very malnourished. The donations from the children of Kerry will be used for the children only, for food, medicine and educational purposes. Further details on http://www.dioceseofkerry.ie
Mothers’ Day – 18ú Márta 2012

Beannacht & Machnamh
Blessed are you, Lord our God, giver of life:
give your strength and wisdom, your compassion and understanding to the mother of this family.
Blessed are you, Son of God, eternal wisdom:
give your knowledge and truth to the children of this family.
Blessed are you, Holy Trinity, eternal and almighty:
shadow with your protecting wings the absent/departed members of this family.
Let us pray:
Father, we want to live as Jesus, Mary and Joseph,
in peace with you and with one another.
By following their example in mutual love and respect may we come to the joy of our home in heaven through Christ our Lord. AMEN
In Onóir Phádraig Naofa 2012
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. A Thiarna, éist linn.

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.
A Thiarna, éist linn.

Tá rian na Naomh ar thír na hÉireann,
Rian geal Phádraig, soiscéal Dé.
Buíoch sinne, muintir Phádraig,
Leanaimis i gcónaí é.
