The word of God is to the human heart
what a seed is to the earth.
However, just as a seed needs soil,
so the word needs a receptive heart.
The earth responds to the rain and sun
so that even the desert blooms.
But the arid human heart has the power to resist so that it remains barren.
Lord, soften our hearts with your grace,
open them with your gentle love,
so that the precious seed of your word
may take root in our hearts,
and bear fruit in our lives.

Smaoineamh

God’s word comforts, guides inspires and challenges us in turn. It is like precious seed. The sower sowed the seed haphazardly: on the path, on the rocks, among the thorns, and on good ground. He was extremely generous with the seed. He wanted to give every part of the field a chance to produce something. God keeps on sowing his word in our hearts. The seed of God’s word, once dropped into the human heart, never dies. It’s never too late to act on the word of God.

Smaoineamh

Gentleness is not a form of weakness. It is a form of strength. Nothing is so strong as gentleness and nothing so gentle as real strength. It takes a strong, self-confident person to be gentle. Gentleness is one of the most necessary qualities in life. Think of the gentleness required in the hands of a mother or a surgeon. Deep down we all pine for gentleness, and we can’t open up and grow without it. A gentle person treads lightly, listens carefully, looks tenderly, and touches with reverence. A gentle person knows that healing and growth result from nurturing not forcing.

Smaoineamh
One of the nicest things in life is to meet an open, friendly, warm, hospitable person. Hospitality is a hallmark of a true follower of Christ.
Christ calls us to welcome the strangers in our midst. To be hospitable does not mean making them like us. It means accepting them as they are. This enables them to shed their strangeness, and become members of the community.
To open one’s heart is to begin to live. To close it is to begin to die.

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.

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.

Pastoral Ministry Course – Have you registered?

It has proved to be very successful in several Pastoral Areas throughout the Kerry Diocese. Thanks to all who have already registered. Forms are available from the Presbytery.

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.

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.

Are you aware of the NCCA survey on Religious Education in our Primary Schools?
Religious Education will no longer be a subject in the state recognised Primary Schools Curriculum, under the NCCA’s proposal, unless you let your views be known. Is this a move to remove Religious Education from our schools? This move devalues and challenges the place and status of Religious Education in our schools. Is this what you want for the future generations of children? As a matter of urgency parents, teachers, Boards of Management and interested adults need to engage with the survey before closing date 26th May 2017.

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.

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.
