St. Gabriel is a saint who is very close to God. He is called the “Angel of God”. God trusted St. Gabriel so much that he was sent by Him to tell Mary that she would be the mother of Jesus.
(Nicole – Bunscoil an Chlochair)
Prayer for Prisoners
Lord, you offer freedom to all people. We pray for those in prison. Break the bonds of fear and isolation that exist. Support with your love prisoners and their families and friends, prison staff and all who care. Heal those who have been wounded by the activities of others, especially the victims of crime. Help us to forgive one another, to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly together with Christ in his strength and in his spirit, now and every day. Amen
Advent
“Advent is a time of waiting, conversion and of hope”
The Advent Wreath
Placing four candles on green fronds has become a symbol of Advent in may Christian homes, especially in Germanic countries and in North America.
The Advent wreath, with the progressive lighting of its four candles, Sunday after Sunday, until the Solemnity of Christmas, is a recollection of the various stages of salvation history prior to Christ’s coming and a symbol of the prophetic light gradually illuminating the long night prior to the rising of the Sun of justice.
Beannú Fleasc Aidbhinte
Beannaímid fleasc an tséasúir beannaithe seo, ciorcal gan briseadh de láithreacht Dé. Is geall le lámh é sínte amach go fáilteach chúinne agus chun an chine daonna. Solas é don saol go léir. Go labhra an fhleasc seo linn i gcónaí faoi Dhia atá farainn gach lá. Go n-osclaímid doirse ár gcroí do Dhia gach lá dar shaol. Go mbeannaí Dia uilechumhachtach sinn go léir, anois agus i gcaitheamh na hAidbhinte. AMEN
Crann Iese
An Cruthú agus an Titim
1. Inseann an chéad siombail scéal an chruthaithe. Deir Leabhar Geineasas linn gur chruthaigh Dia neamh agus talamh, agus go bhfaca sé go raibh sé go maith.
2. Chuir an nathair nimhe cathú ar Ádhamh agus Éabha, ár gcéad athair agus ár gcéad mháthair, an toradh coiscthe a ithe.
3. Cuireann an t-úll a bpeaca i gcuimhne dúínn.
Ardaigh do chroí, a Iosráél, Chugat thiocfaidh Emanúél.
Na Patrarcaí
1. Roimh an Díle, ghlaoigh Dia ar Naoi a chlann agus na hainmhithe go léir a shábháil. Thóg sé an áirc. Comhartha dhílseacht Dé an bogha síne.
2. B’é Ábrahám athair losác. Cuireann Dia triail ar Ábrahám agus tá seisean sásta a aon mhac a ofráil go humhal do Dhia. Cuireann an altóir, an t-adhmad agus an tine umhlaíocht Ábrahám i gcuimhne dúinn.
3. Chonaic lacób i dtaibhreamh dréimire a thaispeánann an ceangal eadraínn agus Dia.
Ardaigh do chroí, a Iosráél, Chugat thiocfaidh Emanúél.
An Dli agus na Fáithe
1. Is é Maois an leanbh tréigthe sa bhascaod a thogh Dia le pobal Dé a threorú ón sclábhaíocht isteach sa tír tairngire. Cé gur mharaigh Maois féin Éigipteach, ghéill sé do Dhia agus ceapadh é chun na Deich n-Aitheanta a thabhairt dúinn.
2. Bhí gairm ar leith ag na fáithe le bealach an Tiarna a réiteach. Le séideadh adharc reithe mar thrumpa ghlaodar an pobal le chéile le héisteacht le briathar Dé a bhí scríofa ar scrolla.
Ardaigh do chroí, a Iosráél, Chugat thiocfaidh Emanúél.
Teaghlach Dháibhí
1. Aoire ab ea Dáibhí, mac lese, a ghlaoigh Dia le bheith ína Rí. Bhí Dáibhí easumhal do Dhia mar pheacaigh sé go trom, ach dhein sí aithrí agus scríobh sé a lán de na sailm a nochtann a aithrí agus a ghrá do Dhia. Cuíreann an chruit in iúl gur ceoltóir é, an choróin agus an réalt gur rí é.
2. Eoin Baiste an fáidh mór deiridh. B’é a mhisean an bealach a réiteach d’Íosa tríd an bpobal a ghlaoch ar ais óna bpeacaí. Cuireann an sliogán i gcuimhne dúinn gur bhaist sé Íosa.
3. Rugadh Seosamh de theaghlach Dháibhí. Ba é siúinéir Nasarat é, duine fíréanta.
4. Bhí Muire luaite le Seosamh. Cuireann an lile agus na réaltaí in iúl a naofacht agus a misean le bheith ina máthair ag Emanúél, an té atá le teacht.
Ardaigh do chroí, a Iosráél, Chugat thiocfaidh Emanúél.
Jesse Tree – Family Tree of Jesse
Creation and Fall
1. Our first symbols tell us the story of creation. The Book of Genesis tells us that God created the heavens and the earth, and that He saw it was good.
2. Adam and Eve, our first parents, were tempted by the serpent to eat the forbidden fruit.
3. The apple reminds us of their sin.
Rejoice, rejoice, O Israel! To you shall come Emmanuel.
The Patriarchs
1. Before the Flood, God calls Noah to save his family and all the animals. So, he builds the ark. The rainbow is the sign of God’s faithfulness.
2. Abraham was the father of Isaac. God tests Abraham who is prepared to give up his only son in obedience to God. The altar, wood and fire recall Abraham’s obedience.
3. In his dream Jacob saw a ladder showing the link between God and ourselves.
Rejoice, rejoice, O Israel! To you shall come Emmanuel.
The Law and the Prophets
1. Moses is the abandoned baby in the basket who was chosen to lead God’s people from slavery into the promised land. Although he himself murdered an Egyptian, he obeys God and is chosen to bring us the 10 Commandments.
2. The prophets had a special vocation or calling to prepare the way of the Lord. By sounding the ram’s horn like a trumpet they called the people together to listen to God’s word written on the scroll.
3. David, the son of Jesse, was a shepherd who was called by God to be King. David went against God by sinning seriously, but repented and wrote many of the psalms showing his sorrow and love for God. The harp tells us of his music, and the crown and star show him as king.
Rejoice, rejoice, O Israel! To you shall come Emmanuel.
The House of David
1. John the Baptist is the last of the great prophets. His mission was to prepare the way for Jesus by calling people to give up their sins. The shell reminds us that he baptised Jesus.
2. Joseph was born of the House of David. He was the carpenter of Nazareth and an upright man.
3. Mary was engaged to Joseph. The Manger and stars symbolise her holiness and her mission to be the Mother of Emmanuel, he who is to come.
Rejoice, rejoice, O Israel! To you shall come Emmanuel.
