Machnamh

Don’t let your life slip through your fingers
by living in the past.
By living your life one day at a time,
you live all the days of your life.

Don’t give up when you still have
something to give.
Nothing is really over until
the moment you stop trying.

Don’t be afraid to admit
that you are less than perfect.
It is this fragile thread that binds
us to each other.

Smaoineamh

When we put ourselves in God’s hands, we open ourselves to enjoy the full grace of God’s protection. We resemble the birds of the air and the lilies of the field. And we are able to live life, to celebrate the present moment.
Entrust the past to God’s mercy, the present to his love and the future to his providence.

Machnamh

Love, they say, is patient,
love, they say is kind.
It sees beyond another’s faults
for love, they say, is blind.

Love will not diminish
or rust or fade with years,
but it will gain its strength
from time, from laughter, joy and tears.

Love is God’s own gift to us,
a present from above.
He gives us peace, he gives us joy,
but first he gives us love.

Pastoral Ministry Course 2017 – 2018
A Pastoral Ministry Course, run by the Diocese of Kerry will be held in Dingle in the Autumn 2017 and Spring 2018. 4 Saturdays in the Autumn and 4 Saturdays in the Spring, one day per month. Anybody interested should contact Fr. Joe or the Presbytery on 066-9151208 as soon as possible. The course is open to all involved in Parish Ministry as well as any other parishioners. We will be in touch shortly with those who have indicated that they would like to take part.

Stations – Invitation
Celebrating the Station Mass in the home enables us to share our faith at the table of the Eucharist inviting the Lord’s blessing on our community. Gathering after the Mass, meeting and chatting with neighbours is also an important part of the occasion. We welcome anyone who would like to host a station Mass in their home this Spring season. To arrange a date, please contact the Parish Office 066-9151208.
Smaoineamh

To love an enemy goes clean contrary to human nature. Only God can help us to love in the way Christ asks of us. When Christ asks us to be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect, the perfection he is talking about is the perfection of love. God loves his children unconditionally. He loves them not because they are good but because he is good.

Oh ever immaculate Virgin, Mother of Mercy,
Health of the Sick, Refuge of Sinners,
Comfortess of the Afflicted, you know my wants, my troubles, my sufferings.
Look upon me with mercy.
When you appeared in the grotto of Lourdes,
you made it a privileged sanctuary where you dispense your favours, and where many sufferers have obtained the cure of their infirmities, both spiritual and corporal.
I come, therefore, with unbounded confidence to implore your maternal intercession.
My loving Mother, obtain my request.
I will try to imitate your virtues
so that I may one day share
your company and bless you in eternity. Amen.

Smaoineamh

The Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, is the world day of the sick. We remember all our sick, in hospitals, nursing homes and at home. Lourdes in the south west of France is a place where love heals. Everyone is touched in some way by such genuine love and care. The difference that such love can make is something that touches everyone who visits Lourdes. We can help to ensure that God’s love is shared and received. All of us are instruments of God’s healing love. We pray for our sick today and we also include all those who look after our sick as well.

The most important thing about each of us
is our capacity for goodness.
We can be a source of light,
We have hands that can care,
eyes that can see,
ears that can hear,
tongues that can speak,
feet that can walk,
And above all hearts that can love.
Lord, help us to believe in our own goodness,
and to let the light of that goodness shine.
On seeing this light others find their way,
And you will be glorified.

Blessing of Throats
Blessing of throats after all Masses this, Saturday and Sunday.

Using two crossed and unlighted candles, the priest touches the throat of each person, saying:
Through the intercession of Saint Blaise, bishop and martyr,
may God deliver you from all ailments of the throat
and from every other evil: + in the name of the Father,
and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Parish Pastoral Council Meeting, Thursday, February 9th at 8pm in The Presbytery.

World Day of the Sick
Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes, next Saturday, February 11th, blessing and anointing of the sick before and after both Vigil Masses.
Smaoineamh

Jesus said to his disciples, ‘You are the salt of the earth; you are the light of the world’. Both are still vitally important today. What was Jesus saying when he used these two images? He was telling his disciples that they have a vital role to play in the world through their good deeds.
When religious practice is divorced from life a vital element is missing. It is like salt that lost its taste, or a lamp that no longer give light.

Machnamh

God of love, show us our place in this world
as channels of your love
for all the creatures of this earth,
for not one of them is forgotten
in your sight.
Enlighten those who possess
power and money that they may
avoid the sin of indifference,
that they may love the common good,
advance the weak,
and care for this world in which we live.
The poor and the earth are crying out.
O Lord, seize us with your power and light,
help us to protect all life,
to prepare for a better future,
for the coming of your Kingdom
of justice, peace, love and beauty.
Praise be to you! Amen.

Blessing of Throats
St. Blaise is the patron saint of sore throats and his feast day falls on Friday next February 3rd. There will be blessing of throats after all Masses next Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
The blessing is a sign of the people’s faith in God’s protection and love for the sick.
Using two crossed and unlighted candles, the priest touches the throat of each person, saying:
Through the intercession of Saint Blaise, bishop and martyr,
may God deliver you from all ailments of the throat
and from every other evil: + in the name of the Father,
and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Smaoineamh

Today we are asked to think about how we can care for our common home. God gave us the earth and the earth gives us many gifts which help us to live. It gives us water, food and energy. It gives us so much to help us care for ourselves, but Pope Francis asks us to think about how we can care for the earth. We can try to use only what we need and try to live our lives in ways that help the earth. We can do this by recycling, wasting less water and caring for plants and animals. The care we give the earth shows God how much we love him and the beautiful home he has given us.
Lord, help us to care for our common home.

We need the light of Jesus now more than ever. Fortunately the lamp Jesus lit continues to burn, a glowing goodness that illuminates the world. The light of Jesus did not come to judge us, but to save us, to show us how to live, to show us the way to the Father’s Kingdom.
Each of us can be sources of light to a darkened world. Indeed each of us is called to that task

Smaoineamh

Through our baptism we have been called to be disciples of Jesus. This is a great honour and a great privilege. We must not forget that it is a call to service. We need the Holy Spirit to touch our hearts. We must learn from John the Baptist not to make ourselves the centre of the world. We must put our gifts at the service of others, not just of ourselves.
In our society our being chosen always implies that others are not chosen. But this is not true for God. God chooses his Son to reveal to us that we too are chosen.

Lord Jesus, touch our eyes
so that we may see the signs of your presence
in our lives and in the world.
Touch our ears so that we may hear your word.
Touch our tongues so that we may profess our faith.
Touch our hands so that we may give and receive.
Touch our feet so that we may walk in your paths.
Touch our minds so that we may
understand your ways.
Touch our wills so that they may be in tune
with your will.
Touch our hearts so that we may bring
your love to one another. Amen.

From a spiritual point of view, baptism is the greatest thing that can happen to us. To be baptised is to be christened, that is, to be made like Christ. But this doesn’t happen automatically as a result of being baptised. One has to learn what it means to be a Christian, and to grow into it. This is the task of a lifetime. Towards the end of his life a saint was asked if he was a Christian, and he replied, ‘not yet’.
To live one’s baptism is to live as a disciple of Jesus.

Beginning of a New Year
Sacred Mystery,
Waiting on the threshold of this new year
You open the gates and beckon to me
“Come! Come!”
Be not wary of what awaits you
As you enter the unknown,
Be not doubtful of your ability
To grow in its joy and sorrows.
For I am with you.
I will be your guide.
I will be your Protector.
You will never be alone.
I welcome your unfailing presence
And walk with hope into this New Year.

Feast of the Epiphany of The Lord
January 6th (Holy day of Obligation) – Masses as follows.

Deardaoin 5ú – Fionn Trá, 6.15i.n.

Thursday January 5th – St. Mary’s, 8.00pm.

Friday, January 6th – Lios Póil, 10.00am.

Friday, January 6th – St. Mary’s, 11.30pm.

Smaoineamh

The start of the New Year is always greeted with enthusiasm. There is a sense of beginning a new journey, leaving old and worn roads behind us, making positive changes in our lives and looking forward in hope.
We won’t be able to change the world, we won’t be able to do a complete changeover, but we can be open to trying some small positive changes in our lives. Every day presents new opportunities but especially the start of a new year. We welcome these opportunities and for us to know that God is gently journeying with us in all our hopes, dreams and plans for this New Year.

C Is for Christ child who was sleeping on the hay.
H Is for heavenly host who worshipped him that day.
R Is for radiance on Mary’s holy face.
I Is for the lowly inn – a poor and humble place.
S Is for the star that shone to guide the shepherds there.
T Is for the Three Kings who brought him treasures rare.
M Is for the manger where he laid his little head.
A Is for the angles that hovered round his bed.
S Is for saviour who brought peace and hope on earth on the wondrous night we celebrate – the night of Jesus’ birth.
NB: Mass will be celebrated at 12noon on St. Stephen’s Day (Monday) in St. Mary’s Church.

Smaoineamh

Christmas gathers us all together in a great universal fellowship in the name of Christ. During Christmas we feel at one with everyone. We feel a desire to reach out to others. Christmas takes us out of our narrow world and breaks our selfish habits. It enables us to see selfishness and prejudice for what they are. We are put in touch with our common humanity, with our shared fears and hopes. God becomes one with us. Jesus is Emmanuel, God-with-us.
