First Holy Communion Lios Póil

Pope Benedict speaking to boys & girls preparing for their First Holy Communion (15/10/2005)


Andrea asked: “Dear Pope, what are your memories of your First Communion day”?


The Pope replied: “I would first like to say thank you for this celebration of faith that you are offering to me, for your presence and for your joy. I greet you and thank you for the hug I have received from some of you, a hug that, of course, symbolically stand for you all.

As for the question, of course I remember my First Communion day very well. It was a lovely Sunday in March 1936, 69 years ago. It was a sunny day, the church looked very beautiful, there was music…. There were so many beautiful things that I remember. There were about 30 of us, boys and girls from my little village of no more than 500 inhabitants.

But at the heart of my joyful and beautiful memories is this one – and your spokesperson said the same thing: I understood that Jesus had entered my heart, he had actually visited me. And with Jesus, God himself was with me. And I realized that this is a gift of love that is truly worth more than all the other things that life can give.

So on that day I was really filled with great joy, because Jesus came to me and I realized that a new stage in my life was beginning, I was 9 years old, and that it was henceforth important to stay faithful to that encounter, to that communion. I promised the Lord as best I could: “I always want to stay with you”, and I prayed to him, “but above all, stay with me”. So I went on living my life like that; thanks be to God, the Lord has always taken me by the hand and guided me, even in difficult situations.

Thus, that day of my First Communion was the beginning of a journey made together. I hope that for all of you too, the First Communion you have received in this Year of the Eucharist will be the beginning of a lifelong friendship with Jesus, the beginning of a journey together, because in walking with Jesus we do well and life becomes good.”

There will be no evening Masses on these Evenings in St. Mary’s Church as these Masses are open to all parishioners in preparation for Corpus Christi Sunday June 10th.

Ráth Dé ar an obair agus naoi gcéad míle fáilte dár gcuairteoirí go Féile na Bealtaine 2012.


Bealtaine na Maighdine

Bláthanna Bealtaine

Chugat a Bhanríon

Réalt na bhFlaitheas

Tú is fonn linn.

Séirse ceoil ó lúib na coille

Grástaí uait

Teacht ‘na dtuile

Fuiseog foinn bhinn

Binneas cuaiche

Laetha gréine

Síolta is luaithe

Scéimh na ngrást

Ar ghleann ‘s ar chluainín

Nuair dhamhsann ann an t-uainín

Dathanna molta Muire Máthar

Dhein an nádúir duit soláthar.

(Fothair na Manach: Caoimhín Ó Cinnéide. Coiscéim)


Queen of the May / Bring Flowers of the Rarest


O Mary we crown thee with blossoms today!
Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May.
O Mary we crown thee with blossoms today,
Queen of the Angels and Queen of the May.


Bring flowers of the rarest
bring blossoms the fairest,
from garden and woodland and hillside and dale;
our full hearts are swelling,
our glad voices telling
the praise of the loveliest flower of the vale!


Their lady they name thee,
Their mistress proclaim thee,
Ah, grant that thy children on earth be as true
as long as the bowers
are radiant with flowers,
as long as the azure shall keep its bright hue.


(Mary E. Walsh based on Traditional 13th Century

Pre-Reformation Catholic Hymn.)
