Smaoineamh
St Patrick was born in 387 CE and grew up near the present day border between Scotland and England. He was taken to Ireland as a slave when he was 16. He fled back to Great Britian after six year before returning to Ireland as a missionary later in his life. He played an important role in converting Ireland’s inhabitants to Christianity. According to legend, he drove all snakes from the island, although these “snakes” probably represent a particular group of pagans or druids.
Many Christians believe that Patrick died on March 17th in the year 461 or 493. He is buried under Down Cathedral in Downpartick, Co. Down. He was never formally canonized but many Christian Churches view him as a saint.

Machnamh

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.

Smaoineamh
We need a lonely place for reflection. Often we live foolishly and unspiritually, driven on by stupid desires and imprisoned by selfish habits. We are surrounded by noise and constant activity. We need solitude. In solitude we begin to stand on our own feet before God and the world, and accept full responsibility for our own lives. The hermit goes into the desert, not to lose himself, but to find himself. Only in solitude and silence can I find the gentleness with which I can love my brothers and sisters.

O Sower of Seeds,
You saw the potential
and beauty within me
and hidden from my eyes.

Thanks and praise to you
O Sower to Seeds,
I am lost in surprise
as I am greening and growing
deep with my heart.

Accept my praise,
my thankfulness too,
for the seed you have sown
and the gift that you grew.

May you lead me to others
who await your good word,
so the seeds within them
can awake and be heard.

Smaoineamh
It’s easy to see the rotten fruit on another person’s tree. But Jesus asks us to look at the kind of fruit our own tree is producing. If there is good fruit there, it doesn’t mean we can be complacent. The fact that we do some good things, doesn’t make us thoroughly good people. And if we find some bad fruit on our trees, we shouldn’t let it get us down. It doesn’t mean we are bad through and through. Let us extend to others the same kind of understanding.

Machnamh

God’s call unfolds, a word at a time, slowly.
A disciple is not made in a hurry.
Slowly, I become like the one
to whom I am listening.

Life unfolds, a petal at a time, like us,
becoming followers of Jesus,
discipled into a new way of living
deeply and slowly.

Be patient with life’s unfolding petals.
If you hurry the bud, it withers.
If you hurry life, it limps.

Each unfolding is a teaching,
a movement of grace,
filled with silent pauses,
breathtaking beauty, tears and heartaches.

Life unfolds, a petal at a time, deeply and slowly.

Smaoineamh
Love releases extraordinary energies in us. The power of love is greater than the power of evil. Still, one of the most difficult things in the world is to love someone who hates you. Yet true love is love of the difficult and the unlovable. Mercy is stronger and more God-like than vengeance.
It is a struggle to overcome the feelings of bitterness and revenge that well up inside us, and can keep welling up, when we are badly treated by another. Forgiveness is never easy. Each day it must be struggled for, and prayed for.

Blessed are the clean of heart;
they will see God.

Blessed are the humble of heart;
they will find rest for their souls.

Blessed are the warm-hearted;

Blessed are those who work with the heart;
they will find joy in their work.

Blessed are those who do not lose heart;
they will find the strength to persevere.

And blessed are those who set their hearts on the Kingdom of God;
everything else will be given to them.

Kerry Person of the Year
Congratulations to Tomás Garvey who has been selected by the Kerry Association in Dublin as their Kerry person of the year. Le gach dea-ghuí ón bparóiste.

Smaoineamh
We often stick with the old and what seems safe and reliable. This is good and important on occasions but it is also good to try new things in life. Our outlook in life changes as time passes. Every day we adapt to changes all around us. Life moulds us and shapes us. What was once important to us, may now no longer be so. Our Gospels encourage us to be open to life and especially all that is refreshing and life giving in our own lives. To be open to what’s new can be risky but always challenging, fufilling and a great place to be.

Oh ever immaculate Virgin, Mother of Mercy,
Health of the Sick, Refuge of Sinners,
Comfortess of the Afflicted, you know my wants, my troubles, my sufferings.
Look upon me with mercy.
When you appeared in the grotto of Lourdes,
you made it a privileged sanctuary where you dispense your favours, and where many sufferers have obtained the cure of their infirmities,
both spiritual and corporal.
I come, therefore, with unbounded confidence to implore your maternal intercession.
My loving Mother, obtain my request.
I will try to imitate your virtues
so that I may one day share
your company and bless you in eternity. Amen.
Our Lady of Lourdes – World Day Prayer for the Sick
Mass will take place in St. Mary’s Church on Monday February 11th at 3pm for all the sick of the parish. Anointing of the sick will be administered during the Mass. Fáilte roimh chách.

Táimid fíor bhuíoch do gach éinne as a dtacaíocht.
Smaoineamh
Fishing is a worthy calling. However, Jesus saw that Peter was capable of other things. He was the kinf of man he wanted to have helping him with his work. What qualities did Jesus see in Peter that made him call him to share in his work. What qualities did Jesus see in Peter that made him call him to share in his work? He had the first and essential one – faith in Jesus. He also had humility.
The Gospel story is not so much a story about fishing, but about trust. Jesus was saying to Peter. ‘How far are you prepared to trust me? It was a turning point in the life of Peter. What started out in failure ended in a new beginning, starting out in a new direction.

Pray for Tom Moran, Ballybunion and late of John Street.

Prayer to St. Brigid
You were a woman of peace,
You brought harmony where
there was conflict.
You brought light to the darkness.
You brought hope to the downcast.
May the mantle of your peace
cover those who are troubled and anxious,
and may peace be firmly rooted
in our hearts and in our world.
Inspire us to act justly and to
reverence all God has made.
Brigid you were a voice for the
wounded and the weary.
Strengthen what is weak within us.
Calm us into a quietness that heals and listens.
May we grow each day into greater
wholeness in mind, body and spirit.
Amen.
Blessing of Throats
St. Blaise is the patron saint of sore throats and his feast day falls on this Sunday February 3rd. There will be blessing of throats after all Masses on Saturday and Sunday.
Through the intercession of Saint Blaise, bishop and martyr,
may God deliver you from all ailments of the throat
and from every other evil: + in the name of the Father,
and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Focal Buíochais
Ár mbuíochas le Cór Naomh Muire agus gach éinne a bhí páirteach san Aifreann a craoladh ó Séipéal Naomh Muire Dé Domhnaigh seo caite. Mo cheol sibh. Táimid fíor bhuíoch do Raidió na Gaeltachta as a dtacaíocht seirbhíse.

Smaoineamh
On Candlemas day, many candles are blessed in churches. These candles will then be used throughout the year for many different occasions. From a faith perspective candles have always represented the light of Christ. We live in a world that is often darkened by evil and darker forces. We believe that the light of Christ is powerful and strong enough to wipe out all forms of darkness. We have to choose the light, we need to share it with others and we need to be proud of our own light. Today we invite God’s light into our lives, into our darker corners and wherever such light is most needed at the moment.

Machnamh

Bí a Íosa i mo chroíse i gcuimhne gach uair
Bí a Íosa i mo chroíse le haithrí go luath,
Bí a Íosa i mo chroíse le dúthracht go buan,
Ó a Íosa, ‘Dhé dhílis ná scar tusa uaim.

Gan Íosa mo smaointe ní thaitníonn liom féin,
Gan Íosa ní scríobhaim ná ní bhogaim mo bhéal,
Gan Íosa mo ghníomhartha ní maith iad sa saol,
Ó, a Íosa, ‘Dhé dhílis bí romham ‘s ‘mo dhéidh.

Blessing of Throats
St. Blaise is the patron saint of sore throats and his feast day falls on Sunday next February 3rd. There will be blessing of throats after all Masses on Saturday and Sunday.
Through the intercession of Saint Blaise, bishop and martyr,
may God deliver you from all ailments of the throat
and from every other evil: + in the name of the Father,
and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Liturgy Group Meeting Wed., Jan 30th at 8pm in St. Mary’s Sacristy.
Lá ‘le Bríde – Friday next, February 1st. St. Brigid Crosses will be blessed at 10am and 7.30pm Masses.
Smaoineamh

Values are central to a Catholic school. All our values have as their foundation the words of Jesus, ‘Love one another, as I have loved you’. Care for one another, the dignity of every person, respect, mercy, fairness, and justice, – all values have their origins in God’s love.
This year each community is asked to focus on their own local school. In celebrating Catholic Schools Week enjoy remembering the past, honouring the present, and committing to give of your best in the future. Google ‘Catholic Schools Week 2019’ and you will get full resources in both English and Irish.
God bless every school community, staff, pupils and their families.

Machnamh / Reflection

We invite you to pray the official prayer for World Youth Day 2019 for the intentions of all those who will participate in Panama or here at home:

Merciful Father,
You call us to live our lives as a way of salvation.
Help us to recall the past with gratitude,
to embrace the present with courage and
to build the future with hope.
Lord Jesus, our friend and brother,
thank you for looking upon us with love.
Let us listen to your voice
as it resonates in the hearts of each one
with the strength and light of the Holy Spirit.
Grant us the grace of being a Church
that goes forth with vibrant faith
and a youthful face to communicate the joy of the Gospel.
May we help to build up the kind of society we long for,
one where there is fairness and fellowship.
We pray for the Pope and the bishops;
for young people;
for all those who will take part in World Youth Day in Panama
and for those who are preparing to welcome them.
Our Lady of Antigua, Patroness of Panama,
help us to pray and live with generosity like yours:
“I am the servant of the Lord.
May it be done to me according to your word” (Lk 1:38). Amen

Ár mBuíochas
We are very grateful to Fr. Anthony O’Sullivan who ministered in our parish. We wish him every success as he takes up his appointment in Rathmore Parish covering for Fr. Pat O’Donnell who has begun his Sabbatical leave. Gach dea-ghuí.
Smaoineamh
What Jesus did at Cana was not a once-off thing. It pointed to what would happen all through his ministry. The changing of water into wine is a symbol for what he was about. Everywhere he went the old was made new. His presence could change beyond recognition the lives of those with whom he came into contact. And he continues to do this for those who believe in him and follow him. He transforms our lives into something wonderful. He offers us something that we pine for but can’t achieve on our own. He offers us a share in the divine life.
Pray for Eamonn Fitzmaurice, Ballyclogher, Lixnaw.

10 things that Pope Francis called upon

Vatican employees to do for the New Year.

6. “Look after your work, doing it with enthusiasm, humility, competence, passion and with a spirit that knows how to thank the Lord.”

7. “Be careful of envy, lust, hatred and negative feelings that devour our interior peace and transform us into destroyed and destructive people.”

8. “Watch out for anger that can lead to vengeance; for laziness that leads to existential euthanasia; for pointing the finger at others, which leads to pride; and for complaining continually, which leads to desperation.”

9. “Take care of brothers and sisters who are weaker … the elderly, the sick, the hungry, the homeless and strangers, because we will be judged on this.”

10. “Making sure your Christmas is about Jesus and not about shopping.”

Christmas Crib Appeal
This year your Crib donations will go to the Order of Malta Holy Family Hospital in Bethlehem and to Arlington Lodge, Tralee, Kerry’s only temporary supported homeless facility. Your support for these 2 very worthy causes would be greatly appreciated. Received to date: €1,915.

Smaoineamh
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.

Pray for Síle Sweeney, (Ní Loingsigh), Dublin and late of Kilfountain; Catriona O’Brien, (nee McNamara), Gallarus, Baile na nGall and late of Limerick; David Sheehy, Faha, Killarney; Lís Griffin, (Ní Chroimthain), Springfield, Massachussetts and late of Com Dhíneol, Dún Chaoin; George McAuliffe, Milltown and late of Brosna.
