I rise today
with God’s strength to direct me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eyes to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak to me,
God’s hand to uphold me,
God’s pathway before me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s host to save me –
from temptations,
from one man or many
that seek to destroy me. Amen.

Finally, thanks to Peter and those who supplied the bus and sound system.

Smaoineamh
Every place needs Christian witnesses. Christ says, ‘Witness to me before men’. It’s in the world we have to stand up and be counted. It’s not good enough to be secret disciples of Christ. We have to give public witness to our Christian faith.
What we are likely to face is not so much hostility or opposition, but something which is even harder – a deadly indifference. To witness in this case requires a special kind of courage. It means overcoming our fear of what people will think of us or say about us, and the fear of what it will cost us in terms of letting go of our ego.

Pray for Paddy O’Sullivan, Tubber. Suaimhneas síoraí dá anam.

Smaoineamh
We need ordinary bread. That is our first and most basic necessity. But we need more than that. Bread nourishes only half of us – the physical side. But we have a spiritual side. It too cries out for nourishment. In the Eucharist we are nourished with the food of God’s word, a word which comforts, guides, inspires and challenges us. And in Holy Communion we are nourished witht the food of eternal life. In the Eucharistic banquet we have nourishment for our minds, hearts and spirits. Here we experience the abiding presence of Christ with us.

I bind unto myself today
The strong name of the Trinity,
By invocation of the same,
The three in one and One in Three.
I bind unto myself today
The power of God to hold and lead.
His eye to watch. His might to stay,
His need to hearken to my need.
The wisdom of my God to teach.
His hand to guide, his shield to ward;
The word of God to give me speech,
His heavenly host to be my guard.

Smaoineamh
The above is a beautiful Russian icon of the Blessed Trinity painted by a monk by the name of Rublev. It depicts the three Divine Persons sitting at a table. A dish of food lies on the table. But the thing that immediately strikes you is the fact that at the front of the table there is a vacant place. The vacant place is meant to convey openness, hospitality, and welcome towards the stranger and outsider. That vacant place is meant for each of us, and for all the human family. It signifies God’s invitation to us to share in the life of the Trinity.

Father, I have knowledge, so will you show me now,
how to use it wisely and find a way somehow to make
the world I live in a little better place,
and make life with its problems a little bit easier to face.
Grant me faith and courage and put purpose in my ways.
So my education, my knowledge and my skill may
find their true fulfilment as I learn to do Thy will.
And may I ever be aware in everything I do,
that knowledge comes from learning,

Smaoineamh

After Pentecost the apostles were changed people. It is mistake to think that the change came about in an instant. It had to be a gradual thing, a process. It was a growth process, set in motion by the action of the Holy Spirit. And growth happens gradually. Though we are dealing with mystery, that doesn’t mean we can’t understand anything about it. The Spirit awakens us to the mysterious power within us, bids us live, and helps us grow.

A Prayer for Vocation

O Jesus, send labourers into your fields
which are awaiting holy apostles, saintly priests,
heroic missionaries and dedicated sisters and brothers.
Enkindle in the hearts of men and women the spark of a vocation.
Grant that Christian families may desire to give your Church help in the work of tomorrow.
Céad Comaoine 2017
Comhghairdeachas le leanaí Bunscoil Cheann Trá agus Cill Mhic a’ Domhnaigh ag glacadh Sacraimint an Chéad Comaoine: Ríona, Carol, Katie, Cuan, Ben, Jesse, Roisín agus Mollaidh. Buíochas ó chroí le gach éinne a bhí páirteach le hullmhú agus ceiliúradh na sacraiminte.

Smaoineamh
Jesus is no hireling. The hireling doesn’t own the sheep, and runs away as soon as he sees a wolf approaching. Jesus is the God Shepherd. The sheep belong to him, and he is ready to die for them. Jesus made the most wonderful promises to those who belong to him. He said that none of them would ever be lost. No one would succeed in snatching from his care the sheep the Father has entrusted to him. The sheep that belong to him will be safe with him because the Father’s power is in him. He and the Father are one. And he will lead them to the pastures of eternal life.

Parish Mission Statement
A Parish Mission Statement is a brief description of what a parish community is about. It highlights the identity and ethos of the community, the vision of the parish both in the present and future. Our Pastoral Council are working on a Mission Statement for our parish. Mission Statements tend to be brief and to the point. This is a first draft below and we invite people to reflect on it and make changes / suggestions if they wish in writing to the Presbytery before 31st May.
Draft Mission Statement
We are a welcoming Catholic Faith Community respecting the uniqueness and value of each person. Inspired by the Gospel and through our worship and service we strive to share with others in a caring and compassionate way.

Mar phobal Caitliceach cuirimid fáilte chroíúil roimh chách le meas ar an uile dhuine. Le hionspioráid ó Shoiscéal Dé is é ár gcuspóir freastal ar dhaoine trénár ndúthracht san adhradh agus lenár seirbhís charthannach thrócaireach.
It is hoped to place the Parish Mission Statement in English and Irish in each of our three churches.
Céad Comaoine 2017
Comhghairdeachas le leanaí Bunscoil an Chlochair, Scoil Iognáid Rís agus Scoil an Ghleanna ag glacadh Sacraimint an Chéad Comaoine: Ana, Tajus, Cathal agus Cillian. Buíochas ó chroí le gach éinne a bhí páirteach le hullmhú agus ceiliúradh na sacraiminte.

Séipéal Naomh Eoin Baiste: Dé Sathairn, Bealtaine 20ú 11.00r.n.

Smaoineamh
Life is unintelligible and unendurable without God. That’s why faith is so important. When the English singer, Charlie lansboro, became a Catholic he said, ‘I believe completely. I can’t imagine my life without my faith. But it took me a long time to get there.’ Those who have faith have a source of comfort and inspiriation, especially when trouble strikes. They know that God will be good to them in the end, both in this world and in the next. It is not we who keep the faith; it is the faith that keeps us.

Hope looks for the good in people,
Hope opens doors where despair closes them,
Hope ‘lights a candle’ instead of ‘cursing the darkness,’
Hope regards problems as opportunities,
Hope pushes ahead when it would be easy to quit,
Hope draws it’s power from a deep trust in God and the basic goodness of human nature.

Statement from Bishop Ray Browne re Sunday Funerals in the Diocese
From Sept 1st 2017 ‘No funerals (Mass, Liturgy or burial) will take place on a Sunday in the parishes of the diocese’. This applies from Saturday mid afternoon. Removals from the church can take place on either Saturday or Sunday evening. This change is necessary for many reasons: related to good Liturgy; related to factors in individual parishes; and related to the availability of priests. Parishes are reminded that there be no exceptions to this diocesan regulation. As regards Holy Days of Obligation the rule will apply to Christmas Day and St Patrick’s Day. On the other Holy Days of Obligation for flexibility reasons the decision is left to the local parish (while still discouraging such funerals for liturgical reasons). I realise many will have reservations about this decision. It has been taken after extensive consultation with laity and clergy throughout the diocese.
Smaoineamh
There is a leaving which is necessary because it is for the good of the one leaving. For example, a person is leaving to return home or leaving to take up abetter job somewhere else. This is certainly true here. Jesus’ leaving for his own good. He is returning to his Father. To return to the Father is to go home. It is to go to honour and glory. Finalyy there is a leaving which is good not only of the one leaving but also of those left behind. Jesus’ leaving is, or will be , good for the apostles too, because he will send them the Spirit. His departure will not leave them unsupported and unguided s they feared. ‘I will not leave you orphans’, he said.

Smaoineamh
How do we know when we have fully discovered our gift? How will I know that this is really my gift? Very few do because each day presents us with a new gift waiting to be discovered each day. Our gift in life is to believe in ourselves, to believe in our potential goodness and love, to use all our stumbling blocks we encounter as stepping stones and to believe that God walks with us on this journey. We can’t ever hoard or lock away God’s blessings in our lives. Our greatest discovery is to know that this supply is endless. Our gift is to appreciate these blessings, live them, love them and share them.
Pray for: Fr. James Downey, Fatima Home, Tralee and late of Castleisland and former Curate in Dingle; Pat Cashen, late of Grey’s Lane who died in Alberta, Canada; Paudie O’Sullivan, Athlone and late of Túirín na Gréine, Churchfield who died in Ontario, Canada; Billy McCarthy, Lixnaw, Baile Uí Shé and New York.

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.

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.
