This Day

 

This day is mine to mar or make,

God keep me strong and true;

Let me no erring by-path take,

No doubtful action do.

 

Grant me when the setting sun

This fleeting day shall end,

I may rejoice o’er something done,

Be richer by a friend.

 

Let all I meet along the way

Speak well of me tonight.

I would not have the humblest say

I’d hurt him by a slight.

 

Let there be something true and fine,

When night slips down, to tell

That I have lived this day of mine

Not selfishly, but well.

Prayer in Time of Illness

 

You knew what weakness was, dear Lord,
Give me the strength I need.
Your everlasting arms beneath,
To help me to succeed.

Stay close beside me every hour,
And hear me when I call.
I need You, how I need You, Lord,
My Love – my life – my all.

Smaoineamh
No one can say that Jesus didn’t live in the real world. He did. He experienced its ugliness himself. But he didn’t answer it with more ugliness. He triumphed over evil by good. He has become a model for all those who suffer unjustly in the cause of right. And he challenges us, his followers, the tenants of the new vineyard, to produce the fruits of justice, love and peace. It’s a great privilege and a great challenge too.

Prayer to Mary,
Mother of the Life Within

 

O Mary, Mother of the Life Within,
All life we entrust to you;
The life of every expectant mother
And the child within her womb:
The life of every human body,
The life of every human soul;
The life of every newborn child
And the life of all grown old.
You held the Lord to your own heart and
Drew him so close in.
So draw us now in all our needs,
O Mother of the Life Within.
Amen.

Smaoineamh
All of us are called to conversion, because conversion is a necessary disposition for entry into the Kingdom. But the conversion which above all Jesus sought to bring about in people was a change of heart. And he succeeded in bringing it about in the most unlikely of people. Many sinners heeded his call to conversion of heart, changed their lives, and made their way into the Kingdom. Others resisted his call to conversion of heart, and refused to change their lives. We need the Lord to touch our hearts with his love and compassion.

Family Prayer for World Meeting of Families

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:
[We pause and remember family members and other by name]
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.
Céad Comaoine / First Holy Communion 2018
NB: We invite all First Communicants and Parents / Guardians to occupy the front seats of our Church today, please.
First Communicants will be invited to place their Enrolment Certificates on the Altar.

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. To arrange a date, please contact the Parish Office 066-9151208.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Smaoineamh
St. Augustine put it well by saying our hearts are never at rest until they rest in the Lord. It is good to have access to somewhere safe and secure in this world to retreat to. Every single one of us needs some form of shelter from those severe and serious storms of life. We also need shelter from a world whose pace is constant, demanding and often unforgiving.
You Lord, are our shelter and our harbour. Protect and guide us, when life and all around us gets rough and stormy. Protect and guide those who are close and near to us. Amen.
Green Street and Car Park Open for Masses
Parishioners can access the usual parking for Masses next weekend, September 30th and October 1st, on Green Street, Presbytery car park and Parish car park as Green Street will be open from 6pm on Saturday to 1pm on Sunday.

God be good to you in all your days,
God be kind to you in all your ways.
God give strength to you when crosses lean,
God send light to you, the clouds between.
God give peace to you in times of strife,
God bless everything that fills your life.
God send joy to you when grief is o’er,
God make way for you at Heaven’s door.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Smaoineamh

A hard heart can’t feel, can’t respond, can’t love. A hard heart can’t experience sorrow, but neither can it experience joy. A hard heart is a closed heart, so it can’t receive. A hard heart is a barren heart.
A soft heart, on the other hand, is a blessing. True, it makes one vulnerable; the soft hearted are easily hurt But a soft heart can also be touched, moved and warmed. It can receive. It can be saddened but it can also be happy. It can respond. It can burst into life like a garden in springtime.

When your heart is sad and lonely,
And your friends seem far away,
Turn to Him Who is all holy,
And He’ll drive your cares away.

He will love and bless and say,
“Come to Me and I will comfort
You, today and every day.”

Ar Lá Breithe na Maighdine Muire
A Mhuire a Mhaighdean, níor chualathas riamh

Is tú réalt na mara,
is tú réalt na maidine
is tú réalt na hoíche,
is tú réalt na n-aingeal,
is tú bláthfhleasc na bhFlaitheas.
Dé do bheatha, a Mhuire na ngrásta,
agus dé do bheatha, a Bhanríon ghrámhar,
Is beannaithe thú thar na mnáibh
is is beannaither Íosa, do NaomhPháiste.

Smaoineamh

Our following of Christ can be in small steps. God is patient. His challenge is invitation. What does following Christ mean in practice? It means faithfulness to one’s way of life, concern for others in whatever manner, the caring gesture, the kind word – these add up. The Lord does not overlook the painful decision, the unspoken sorrow, the secret suffering. There can be much heroism in ordinary life.

Smaoineamh
Peter is one of the most interesting characters in the Gospel. It’s clear that he has leadership qualities. But it’s also clear that he had glaring weaknesses. In the Gospels we see his ups and downs. Sometimes he is like a rock; othertimes he is more like a piece of jelly. It’s interesting to see hoe Jesus dealt with him. How he helped him grow into the man who was ready to lay down his life for him, and who eventually did.

Fómhar na Feirme

“Praise the Lord, Jerusalem;
He feeds you with the finest wheat”. (Psalm 147)

Let the wealthy and great
Roll in splendour and state
I envy them not, I declare it.
I eat my own lamb,
My chickens and ham,
I shear my own fleece and I wear it.
I have lawns, I have bowers,
I have fruit, I have flowers,
The lark is my morning alarmer.
So jolly boys now,
Here’s God speed the plough,
Long life and success to the Farmer.

“They go out, they go out full of tears,
Bearing seed for the sowing.
They come back, they come back with joyful shouts,
Bringing into the barns their harvested sheaves.” (Psalm 126)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
Smaoineamh
Every day we make decisions. Some are straightfoward and done without much thought. More can be difficult especially when we are pulled in different directions. It is good advice not to rush into any important decision, but there always comes a point when we have to decide. Sometimes our decisions are not always the correct ones, but all we can do is our best and what we think is right at that particular moment. We ask God’s guidance and

Machnamh
Take my hand , O Blessed Mother
Hold me firmly lest I fall
I am nervous when I am walking
And to Thee I humbly call.

Guide me over every crossing
Watch me when I am on my way
Let me know you are beside me
Listen to my fervent prayer.

Bring me to my destination
Safely every single day
Help me with my understanding
As the hours pass away.

And when evening falls upon me
And I fear to be alone
Take my hand O Blessed Mother
Once again and lead me home.

Machnamh
Lord, lead us onwards,
in discovering your dream for us;
Lead us outwards, in love and solidarity,
Cherishing each other and every other;
Lead us inwards, deeper into the mystery
of what you have created us to be.
Amen.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Smaoineamh

Without hope there is no tomorrow and, without it, today begins to crumble. We all need some help in our lives. Many of us have been pushed beyond our limits at times. But somewhere from within, we do our best to keep going. In our Gospels, Jesus constantly inspired people and gave each of them renewed hope and life. Seemingly impossible situations were completely turned around. We can never say that we have enough hope. We pray for renewed hope and life, whatever our own situation may be. We pray especially for any person or family whom we know is going through a difficult time. We pray for hope in their lives.
