Machnamh / Reflection

Lent is a time to learn to travel light,
to clear the clutter from our crowded lives,
and find a space, a desert.
Deserts are bleak, no creature comforts,
only a vast expanse of stillness,
sharpening awareness of ourselves and God.
Uncomfortable places, deserts.
Most of the time we’re tempted to avoid them,
finding good reasons to live lives of ease, cushioned by noise from self-discovery, clutching at world’s success to stave off fear. But if we dare to trust the silence to strip away our false security, God can begin to grow His wholeness in us, fill up our emptiness, destroy our fears, give us new vision, courage for the journey and make our desert blossom like a rose.

 

Stations of the Cross

National Church collection for The World Meeting of Families will be taken up next weekend, February 24th/25th as a second collection after Communion. The World Meeting of Families, taking place in Dublin this August, promises to be an occasion that will reflect on the faith experience of families from many parts of the world as well as on the challenges and celebrations which characterise the ups and downs of day-to-day family life. Pope Francis hopes to come to Ireland for it. Hosting this national and international event is both a privilege and a responsibility. It requires an enormous amount of planning and funding. In this regard the third national collection will be held in all churches next weekend, the 24 and 25 February 2018. Please give generously to help fund this promotion of family life. Family: where Life begins and Love never ends.
Parish Pastoral Council meeting, Thursday February 22nd at 8pm.

Smaoineamh

Jesus accepted the leper just as he was. Acceptance is the answer to rejection. It is one of the loveliest things that can happen to us. When people accept us they give us a feeling that we are worthwhile. Each of us longs to be accepted for what we are. It is the love and acceptance of others that makes us the unique persons that we are. When we are accepted only for work we do, then we are not unique, for others can do the same work perhaps even better than we can. But when we are accepted for who we are, then we become unique and irreplacable, and are able to realise our full potential.

Machnamh / Reflection

Lord, protect us, your pilgrim people.
As we journey towards our home in heaven,
bless us with a sense of adventure
and a sense of security.
As we seek to be home-makers
here on earth,
both with our loved ones and
in our parish community,
may we create for each other
an experience of Christian welcome
that puts us in touch with you
and gives us a foretaste
of what home will be like for ever.
Amen.

Blessing of Throats
St. Blaise has been venerated as patron of those who suffer from disease of the throat and his feast day falls on Saturday February 3rd. There will be blessing of throats after all Masses this Saturday and Sunday.
World Day of the Sick
Sunday, February 11th, blessing and anointing of the sick before and after all weekend Masses.
Adoration
A member of The Diocesan Adoration Prayer Team will speak at all Masses on the weekend of the 17th/18th February.

Smaoineamh

The most beneficial prayer of all is just to be in the presence of God, without saying or doing anything. This may sound easy, but in practice it’s very difficult. Because as soon as we stop, we feel empty, perhaps even useless. Most people get their sense of self-worth from doing. They don’t know how to cope with idleness and stillness. The result is that their lives can be shallow and superficial. When we immerse ourselves in the quiet and stillness of God’s presence, we experience our true worth, which consists not in doing but in being.

Machnamh / Reflection

Father, breathe your Spirit
upon your people gathered together.
Grace us, we pray, with
a new sense of your mystery,
a new experience of your presence,
a new commitment to your gospel,
a new dedication to your kingdom.
May your Spirit be our inspiration
and may our living contribute to
the coming of your kingdom,
through Christ our Lord.
Amen.

Smaoineamh

In today’s Gospel we read that Jesus’ teaching ‘made a deep impression on the people because, unlike the Scribes [the official teachers], he taught them with authority.’ Why did Jesus make such an impact on his listeners? Because, in the words of Emerson, ‘Jesus spoke always from within, and in a degree that transcended all others. Here the only person who speaks with authority is the one who has experienced what is being talked about. There is no authority like the authority of the one who has lived what he is saying.

Pray for Mary McGowan, The Grove; John Francis Jack Ashe, New York.

Machnamh / Reflection

 

God, our Father,
We are brothers and sisters in Jesus your Son,
One family, in the Spirit of your love.
Bless us with the joy of love.
Make us patient and kind,
gentle and generous,
welcoming to those in need.
Help us to live your forgiveness and peace.
Protect all families with your loving care,
Especially those for whom we now pray:

Increase our faith,
Strengthen our hope,
Keep us safe in your love,
Make us always grateful for the gift of life that we share.
This we ask, through Christ our Lord,
Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Smaoineamh

Repentance is something essentially positive. True, to repent is to admit that all is not well with oneself. But it is also to discove something wonderful about oneself, namely, that one has potentialities which one didn’t know one had. It means acquiring a new vision, taking a new direction, setting oneself more worthwhile goals, living by better values. In a word, it means a new life.

Lord of our heart,
give us vision to inspire us.
Lord of our heart,
give us wisdom to direct us.
Lord of our heart,
give us courage to strengthen us.
Lord of our heart,
give us trust to console us.
Lord of our heart,
give us love to mission us.
Lord of our heart,
give us grace to root our lives in You.

Smaoineamh

God calls us in many ways and at many different levels. He calls us into life. Throughout our lives God continues to call us to a life worthy of our dignity as his children. At death God will call us from this life into eternal life. God’s call can take many forms, and be fulfilled in different ways. It is not likely to be as dramatic as was the call of Samuel, or as that of the first apostles. Yet God speaks to us in the depths of our heart, calling us to intimacy with himself, and to be his co-workers in the world.

For the gift of our hands
and the power of their touch,
We bless You God, our Creator.
For the wonderful example of Your healing touch,
We bless You Jesus, our Redeemer.
For the grace that leads us to reach out
and transform the world through our being,
we bless You, life-giving Spirit.
We pray, in the name of the beloved Trinity,
that all the work and gestures of our hands will
contribute to the building of Your kingdom
among us.

Smaoineamh

Yes, it’s possible to get disconnected from God, and to forget who we are. It grieves the heart of God when his children become estranged from him and from one another. But Christmas is a big help here. Christmas gives us an opportunity to reconnect ourselves with God if we feel we have become disconnected from him. At Christmas we experience the closeness of God. God is not some remote and uncaring figure. God is our heavenly Father, who is close to us, and to whom we are important and precious. Christmas reminds us of who we are, and what our destiny is.

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.

Dé hAoine 5ú – Fionn Trá, 6.15i.n.

Smaoineamh
The family is vital for our well-being as individuals and for the well-being of society as a whole. It is in the family that we acquire the skills of relationship. It is there we learn to handle the inevitable conflicts that occur within any human group. It is there we first take risks of giving and receiving love. It is the birthplace of the moral sense. It is there, as children, that we discover who we are and develop a sense of personal worth. As for Mary and Joseph in welcoming Jesus into their lives, and in bringing him up in faith and love, they played their part in helping him to realsie his destiny.

Machnamh / Reflection

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 (Tuesday) 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. Jesus coming among us takes us out of our narrow world and breaks our selfish habits. It enables us to see selfishness and prejudice for what thay 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.

To live gratefully, with generously
To live fully, with enthusiasm
Help me to hold this vision
and to daily renew it in my heart,
becoming ever more one with you. Amen.

Divine – Jesus has humbled Himself to become the human face of God.
Vocation – Christ came with a call for everybody.
Endings – the coming of Jesus brought an end to the old ways.
Neighbour – The free response to His loving invitation required concrete action on behalf of the neighbour.
Transformative – Christians are challenged to transform our world.
