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.

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.

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.

Advent God,
we journey with you,
to Bethlehem’s stable
and a new-born King,
ears attuned to the song of angels,

Forgive us

Keep our hearts aflame
with the hope
of Christmas,
and the promise
of a Saviour. Amen

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.’
