Machnamh

Lord Jesus,
on this Advent day and at this Advent time,
we long for your coming among us;
our hearts desire the warmth of your love
and our lives search for
your presence among us.

You call each of us by name,
to proclaim the Good News of your Son,
Jesus Christ through witness,
worship and service.

Increase our longing for you
and give us the courage to grow in love,
with one another in our parishes and communities.
To you we say “Come, Lord Jesus”.
Focal Buíochais

Blessing of the Advent Wreath

O Lord our God,
You have brought us again to this holy season
You have nourished us and called us to be your own.
You are with us always.

We bless the wreath of this holy season.
An endless circle of God’s Presence.
An ever-green, ever-fresh outreach to us and all people.
A Light of the World.
May this wreath always speak to us of the
Presence of God in our lives.

O God, our Father and Mother bless us.
You have given each of us unique gifts.
May we share the gifts we have and
grow in strength and love.

Com Lord Jesus, like the dawn from on High,
Give light to those in darkness
and guide us into the way of peace.
Lord God, all things are made holy by your Word.
Grant that we, who in the weeks to come will watch this wreath ever-increasing light, may prepare our hearts for the coming of Christ.

What is my wish, desire during this Season of Preparation, longing and waiting?
The Advent Wreath
Placing four candles on green fronds has become a symbol of Advent in many 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 coming of Jesus.

Prayer For The Dead

Life is but a stopping place,
a pause in what’s to be,
a resting place along the road,
to sweet eternity.

We all have different journeys,
different paths along the way,
we all were meant to learn some things,
but never meant to stay…

Our destination is a place,
far greater than we know.
For some the journey is quicker,
for some the journey is slow.

And when the journey finally ends,
We hope to claim a great reward,
and find an everlasting peace,
together with the lord.

Smaoineamh

When we look at Jesus what do we see? There is no throne, no crown, no palace, no army. We see him walking the dusty roads of Palestine with a little band of disciples. He is surrounded by the poor and the sick, by sinners and outcasts.
And yet the title ‘king’ is appropriate, and stands for something true and real in Jesus. It stands for his divinity. God is the Lord of all, the King of the universe, the One to whom all owe allegiance, the Ruler and Judge of all.

Eucharistic Adoration in the side Chapel from 5.00p.m. – 7.00p.m. on Sunday 20th on the Feast day of Christ the King.

Prayer For The Dead

God, thank you for the special people in our lives
whom we are remembering here today.
We thank you that you are a compassionate God
who walks with us in our dark moments
of grief and loneliness.

We are thankful for all who continue
to love and support us in our grief.
Continue to be a light for us,
giving us hope,
direction and courage.

May we now live our lives treasuring
the memories of those special people
we have known and loved
and help us to bring light
and hope to others.

We make this prayer through Christ our Lord.
Amen

HOLY SOULS – NOVEMBER MASSES
Holy Souls – November Masses will be celebrated in our 3 Parish churches, Cnoc a’ Cairn and in West Kerry Community Hospital next Wednesday November 16th at 11am remembering all those named by you in our Parish November Lists.
You will find the purple coloured list in the envelope delivered to your homes recently. A triduum of Masses will be celebrated for those on the lists during November in the 3 Parish Churches:
St. Mary’s–at 7.30pm. November 15th, 16th and 17th.
Naomh Eoin Baiste –at 7.30pm. November 22nd, 23rd and 24th.

Mass for the Holy Souls’ will be celebrated in the cemetery on Cnoc a’ Cairn on Monday November 14th at 2pm.

Smaoineamh
In a world of so much social and political turmoil, people of faith will often be regarded as naïve and ineffective and irrelevant. However, we must not be afraid of scepticism and cynicism, but trust that God will give us the strength to hold our ground.
Jesus said to his disciples, ‘Do not be frightened.’ One would not be human if one didn’t feel fear when danger threatens. It’s not fear but the overcoming of fear that is the question. ‘A person without fear is no hero; the person who overcomes fear is.’
Jesus says: ‘By your endurance you will gain your souls.’

Fear not nor grieve at my departure, you whom I have loved so much for my roots and yours are forever intertwined.

Smaoineamh

It is never possible to measure faith like we do when we measure height or weight. Our belief in a God who loves us is the main cornerstone of our faith. Everything else is built from and around this cornerstone. Some people may be struggling to find or even see this cornerstone. We can gently point the way forward by doing our best with what we have and leading by good example. When this is done quietly and without fuss the results can often be extraordinary. Helping someone to find or renew their faith may not always be our first priority. But we often do it without even realizing it.

To accomplish excellence or anything outstanding you must
listen to that whisper which is heard by you alone.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny
matters compared to what lies within us.

The rung of the ladder was never meant to rest upon,
but only to hold a man’s foot long enough to enable him
to put the other one somewhat higher.

Smaoineamh

The central issue for human beings in how we can have a change of heart and learn to love one another. There has to be a touching, a softening, a moving of the heart, which leads to an opening of the heart, and finally to a sharing of the heart’s riches. A harsh approach causes the heart to close and harden. A kind approach, such as Jesus adopted with Zaccheus, causes the heart to soften and open. Nothing but the heart can change the heart.

Smaoineamh

Only faith can answer the most profound questions of life. It gives hope and meaning to life. Just because we believe doesn’t mean we have all the answers. Faith is all about trust and at the end of the day it is all about a relationship with God. One never looses ones faith but one can stop shaping our lives by it. It also happens to be the greatest power and energy in the world and that’s why Jesus compared it to a mustard seed. It is so small that you could hardly hold it in your fingers and no bigger than the size of the full stop at the end of this sentence. Yet it grows into a fine big tree. With faith what looks impossible becomes possible.

1. “An Introduction to Celtic Spirituality and Culture, and the Early Irish Church” – Wednesday October 19th 8pm – 9.30pm.
2. “An Díseart – a centre for the promotion of Celtic Christian Spirituality and Culture” – Wednesday October 26th 8pm – 9.30pm.
Smaoineamh

A prayer is answered, not when we get what we are asking for, but when we are granted a sense of God’s nearness. The prayer of a sick person is answered, not by having his disease disappear, but by his gaining a sense of God’s nearness, the assurance that his illness is not a punishment from God and that God has not abandoned him. Prayer may not change the world for us, but it can give us the courage to face it.
When we learn how to pray, we learn not just how to recite words, but how to open the heart. The practice that nourishes one most is quiet prayer of the heart. Just sitting very quietly and opening the heart and letting God in.

Smaoineamh

As for expressing gratitude to God: God doesn’t need our thanks, But we need to thank God. It reminds us that everything we have we owe to him. We can truly call ourselves grateful people only when we can say thanks for everything that has brought us to this moment. This kind of gratitude enables us to reclaim our whole past, and to see it as the concrete way in which God has led us to this moment.

Smaoineamh

 

Faith adds the buoyancy of hope to life. We need hope as much as we need food. But we can’t have hope without faith. And faith results in joy. Happy those who discover the joy of believing, the rapture of faith in God, the ecstasy of heeding the divine invitation and clasping God’s out stretched hand.

But we mustn’t expect faith to clear everything up. We live in a world where many desperately seek to know all the answers. Just because we believe doesn’t mean we know everything. But we don’t need to know all the answers. People don’t have to understand a work of art to be inspired by it. Faith is trust, not certainty.
